We know we’re an MMA news site, but occasionally we like to mix it up with something funny. So here’s a list of the 12 worst tattoos in MMA for your enjoyment.
12. Rich Clementi
Ignore the unfortunately placed head in this picture and focus on the tat on Rich’s right pec. Cartoony tattoos are never cool. Ever. I don’t care how tough you are, there should be laws against this sort of thing. Write your Congressman.
11. Tim Sylvia
Sylvia: “Dude, I’m gonna’ get a tattoo that covers 30% of my arm and shoulder!” Friend: “Really? What’s it going to be?” Tim Sylvia: “I don’t know, just the first design I see in the parlor’s portfolio. It’ll make me look like one of the cool kids.”
10. Joe Riggs
Tattoo Rule #1: Never get your name – or nickname – tattooed on yourself. Tattoo Rule #2: If you ignore Rule #1, don’t use giant block letters when getting said tattoo.
9. Cub Swanson
I saw a cool postcard in Malibu once, but never did I consider tattooing it all over me. Appears Cub Swanson doesn’t share the same restraint as I do.
You know that unwritten tattoo rule of “Don’t tattoo your chick’s name anywhere on your body?” That also applies to places you work for and your age. Season’s change is the reasoning, but in Buzz Berry’s mind: Cage Rage 4-eva!
7. Jeff Monson
His entrance song placed him at the top of one worst list already. And now his tats have him on another worst list. It appears a tattoo parlor exploded and Monson was the lone victim. Another star would really complete the design, though – don’t you think?
