The 10 Worst Tattoos On Members Of One Direction

Celebrities! They're just like us! They get terrible tattoos! And no celebrities get more terrible tattoos than the boys of One Direction (except for Niall who remains pristine!). I have a feeling they're going to regret all this ink more than most Directioners are going to regret spending so much money on 1D merch when they're older. Here are 10 of the ugliest tattoos on some of the cutest boys around. (What? They're cute! I'm not immune to their charms!)
 

Comedy and Tragedy Masks - Harry

Not only is this tattoo a tired idea, the design is pretty amateur hour. But it is comedically tragic, so I guess it has some symbolism ... other than "this is a mistake".

Tea Cup - Louis

So let me get this straight — Louis decided to get this crude drawing of a tea cup next to the word 'oops!' and he didn't once think "Whoa! Speaking of oops!" I would argue that 90% of all 1D tats should just be the word "oops" as well. *cue hater accusations*

 

Coat Hanger - Harry

My favorite fan theory is that the hanger means Harry is in the closet, but I suspect most of Harry's tats weren't thought out. But who cares? He's the cute one!

 

Crossed Fingers - Zayn

WHAT. Why? This tat is very Facebook to me. It looks like it was designed by the same people who created the Like icon. And much like Facebook these days, it's boring and and not cool.

 

Green Bay Packers Logo - Harry

This tat is the result of a bet with one of Harry's Packers-loving friends.  Harry said he would get the ink if the Packers won the next day. But before the game even started, Harry found out he wouldn't be able to watch it, and asked his friend if the Packers were expected to win. The friend said yes, and so Harry just got the tattoo right then and there. Here's the rub — the Packers lost the next day. Basically, Harry is looking for any excuse to get a crappy tattoo. 

 

Microphone - Zayn

Not only is this tattoo a mic, it's a mic with a bad case of diarrhea. It's called dropping the mic, not dropping a load.

 

Tic Tac Toe Board- Louis

Well, if Louis wanted a tat that looked like it was drawn on his arm by a four year old with a Sharpie, he succeeded.

 

Pink Floyd Prism - Harry

A tattoo inspired by Pink Floyd's iconic Dark Side of the Moon album would be a bit dumb, but not horrible. This specific tattoo, however, is horrible. The boys might be fine singers and dancers, but they're not very good at tattoo design. Don't get me started on that ship. Did I mention yet how hard it was to pick Harry's worst tats?

 

Chevrons - Liam

Oh Liam, this is not the way to distinguish yourself. You look like roadkill.  

"Might as well" - Harry

For Directioners everywhere, getting this close to what Harry has under his boxers, the phrase "might as well" would be an understatement. The meaning of this tattoo seems pretty obvious — it's clearly Harry's tattoo philosophy.

Which one do you think is the worst? Let me know @desijedeikin or in the comments below!
