Tattoos have become a pretty popular trend among adolescents and adults in today’s culture, especially within the rap and hip-hop community. While your average person may choose to get a tattoo or two, rappers and other artists in the music industry often adorn their entire bodies with artistic ink, such as Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, DMX, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Kid Ink.

While most people make it a top priority to hire a skillful artist to ink them, not everyone is as good a judge of character as we’d hope them to be. Unfortunately, not all tattoo artists who claim to be talented are, which leaves some people with horrid tats that are permanent, unless you can get them removed, which is a costly endeavor.

Even some major artists end up with questionable tattoos, and you would think they would have enough money and resources to employ the best in the business. In this case it may just come down to the individual having bad taste.

Here’s a list of 32 horrible rap and hip-hop related tattoos we’ve compiled. Some of them are fans’ tattoos and others are actual artists’ tattoos. Just remember, before deciding to get a tattoo, think very carefully about what you want and, please, don’t get any of these.
