13 Worst Food Tattoos Ever (Slideshow)

Be thankful these tattoos aren’t on you forever


We wonder which fast food chain this guy prefers? The McDonald's gang's all here on this massive, colorful chest piece. Someone get this guy a Happy Meal, STAT!

Breakfast on Head

Who needs breakfast in bed, when you can get breakfast on head? Yes, this guy loves his bacon and eggs so much he decided to get the whole diner special permanently memorialized on his bald dome. If you ask us, this is a dish best left on the plate, and off your noggin.

Branded Beauty

This may not be the kind of advertising campaign Popeye's Chicken had in mind. Instead of inducing a fried chicken craving, the sight of this ink reminds us all of the not-so-cute consequences of fast food indulgence.

Butchered Tattoo

Our beef with this pork-themed tat is not so much the image, but the placement of said image. The lower back (or "tramp stamp" region) is generally an unsavory locale for a tattoo, especially if it depicts a pig prior to slaughter. That just ain't right.

Chicken-Angel Wings

This food enthusiast's take on traditional angel wings involves a little less feather, and a little more buffalo sauce. It seems like a quaint idea in theory, but on paper (and skin) it takes on a certain unappealing flavor.

Ambiguous Pizza

Pizza and beer are an undeniably satisfying culinary combination. This particular tattoo however, is far from satisfying. At first glance, the pizza slices look more like chicken fingers doused in honey mustard than slices of a tasty pie. Labeling one can "beer" and the other "pizza" is also an interesting artistic choice. Maybe it's just to clarify that those dripping, ambiguous triangles are, in fact, pieces of pizza.

The Thing

The shiny spud depicted here isn't exactly getting us hungry for a nice baked potato. The face alone is creepy enough, but get a load of that bellybutton. Hold the sour cream, please

Zombie Dough Boy

Zombies are all the rage these days, and it seems like almost everything out there has been zombified in some fashion. But a gruesome, undead Pillsbury Dough Boy? Some things are too sacred to be messed with, and the mastermind behind iced cinnamon rolls is one of them. Leave the Dough Boy out of this!

Rancid Meat

Don't burgers usually come with a side of fries, not flies? It's pretty clear why the flies have begun circling this burger, because if you look closely, the patty appears to be rife with sickly blue veins. Why, you ask, would someone permanently tattoo rancid meat to their body? That's a mystery better left unsolved.

Don’t Poke This

Similar to the gentleman with the Popeye's emblem, this guy chose to pay homage to the highly caloric fare that led to the width of his waistband. The Pillsbury Dough Boy depicted here has our sympathies. He seems to be surrounded by ominous red and blue shapes and swirls that threaten to swallow him up, bellybutton and all.

Rock Star Ronald

Ronald McDonald is living out his punk rock dreams in larger than life style on this Big Mac lover's back. He seems pretty psyched about it, but we're not so sure he should be. Maybe it's all a product placement ploy to get free Mickey D's for life? We can only hope.

Soy or Sponge?

Anyone who abstains from meat consumption and sticks to soy deserves some serious respect. A vegetarian diet is healthy for the body as well as the planet, and we'd never knock an herbivore for their eating habits. This tattoo however, looks less like soy and more like a dirty sponge.


After studying this cryptic message for a solid 10 minutes, we think we cracked the code. Eye-donut-carrot-all, or "I do not care at all." Well, you should probably start caring about what becomes a permanent part of your physical appearance, because this tattoo is one to regret.
