There are many reasons to get a tattoo - an homage to your favorite band. In memory of your beloved childhood pet poodle. To commemorate that time you ate seven Double-Doubles at In-N-Out.
However, some people are so inspired by cars that they decide to permanently imprint one on their bodies. And some of these tattoos go horribly wrong. Here are 5 of the worst car tattoos you'll hopefully never see again.
