85 Seriously Strange Tattoos

From Twosome Toaster Ink to Flaming Celeb Tatts

— July 26, 2012 — Unique
These seriously strange tattoos are wild, crazy, insane and ultimately wacky. Some of these bizarre tattoo designs are baffling, such as the human belly branding, zipped-up inks and bizarre rainbow eyebrow tattoos.

Finding people that do not support any piercings and tattoos is not as common as it once was. Tattoos are one of the dominant ways that individuals today express themselves artistically. Tattoos are becoming more acceptable within society, but there is a fine line between inventive and strange ideas.

All of these tattoos have crossed the line, and are shocking and mind-boggling. Some popular tattoo designs include anatomical, facial and celebrity portrait inks. These strange tattoos may look intriguing today, but imagine what they will look like in 50 years.
