The Ugliest Tattoos Ever!

You can easily Undo mistakes in Photoshop, but that's not the case in the real world, especially with Tattoos. I think one of the hardest jobs is being a Tattoo Artist, because there's simply no room for mistakes. Tattoos are Forever and too bad for these guys (willingly or not) 'coz their skins are now home to the world's most hideous tattoos!

I think this Patriots tatt was done by a 6-yr. Old.

I'm not sure if his girlfriend would appreciate this.

Opposites do attract.

I feel bad for this guy.

This is some Exorcist sh*t right here.

I'm kinda in the fence with this one, the tattoo's not that ugly, it's drawn pretty well and the placement is SPOT-ON (pun intended)!



2016 Olympics : Candidate Cities' Logos

Here are the Logos of the Candidate Cities for the 2016 Summer Olympics, that's still 7 years from now but the prospect cities are given ample of time to prepare.

The finalists are Chicago | US, Tokyo | Japan, Madrid | Spain & Rio de Janeiro | Brazil.

If i were to vote for the best design, i'd go for Madrid.

Although i must say that the logos above are way better than 2012's host, London.

Which logo do you like best?

Miracle Photoshop Makeover : Madame Auring

Where do i even start? Well i was hoping to do some photo retouching and i scavenged for pictures that will provide me the challenge, i stumbled on a rare gem, Madame Auring! Don't ask me how!

I thought it would be easy, but it turned out otherwise. I stared at her pic for an hour figuring what do with her face, it seemed like a lost cause, and yes it was! Whatever PS tool or feature i used were useless against her natural (in this case unnatural) appearance.hehe

Here's the before & after:

I made her nose look normal, but it didn't real do anything.

If you ask me, if i went any further, she'll end up looking like Mystica. LoL

And whaddya know, they're friends! Explains a LOT! Maybe they trade beauty secrets.

I guess we'll just have to admit that some things are better left untouched.

P.S. She looks like one of the Jacksons nuhh?!
