This Woman Got Drunk And Woke Up With A Tattoo Of An Ejaculating Penis On Her Shoulder

Pretty sure this is the worst tattoo of all time.

Here's Holly Aston, from Druids Heath, Birmingham.

According to the Birmingham Mail, she got drunk at a student party when she was 17 years old, and woke up to find that she'd allowed her friends to draw an ejaculating penis and some balls on her shoulder with a DIY tattoo gun she'd bought online.

And this was the end result.

Her first tattoo had been done by a qualified artist, she said, but she severely regrets this moment of madness and will have it removed on the Channel 4 show Bodyshockers: Nips, Tucks and Tattoos. She said she's had to keep it covered with plasters in the summer when swimming in case children see it, and had to turn down family holidays as she was hiding it from her parents.

Aston told the Birmingham Mail:

It was so easy to buy a tattoo gun off the internet for about £50. You get the full kit of needles and ink and it's easy to operate, though they give you no instructions about keeping it sterile. We were very lucky not to get an infection or blood poisoning. I had tattoo parties with my mates. We'd have some drinks and tattoo each other – it was stupid...

I knew what they were doing and didn't mind at the time. It was just a joke and I thought it was funny. But then I woke up the next day, looked at it and thought 'Oh God, what have I done?' The joke was over and it really wasn't funny anymore.
