Over a month ago, Guy Daniels of Expressions Ink Tattoo in Downtown Wausau said he wanted to be the new sponsor of Scary Terry's Saturday Nightmare.
Guy's a good dude. He's pretty generous with his time. He sits with every customer and really dig in to what they want to see from their tattoo. When it comes to permanent body art, Guy makes sure that it's 100% right, every time.
When Expressions Ink Tattoo signed on as a sponsor, Guy gave us a bunch of gift certificates to give away on the show. A stack of $50 ones, and one big fat $200 one as a grand prize. We did text-in-to-win for the $50 G.C.s, but for the $200 one we wanted to do something special. Guy and I want it to go to someone who NEEDS ink work. So we came up with Scary Terry's Tattoo Rehab.
Over the last few weeks, we've asked you to submit pictures of your bad tattoo with the hashtag #ScaryTerrysTattooRehab on the official Scary Terry's Saturday Nightmare Facebook Page .
We have all of our contestants. Now it's time to vote for the one who need Tattoo Rehab the most. Here are your contestants:
Amy Marie Brost - "Funky Fairy" and "Sucky Star"
If I saw that fairy in my garden, I'd take a flyswatter to it. That star looks like it was done with crayon.
Brian Shinkan - "Crap Umbrella Corp"
This tat is so rough, Brian can't even bring himself to play Resident Evil games anymore.
Britteny Lipke - "Trailer Tattoo Shop"
According to Britteny,
"So after a horrible mistake, and not quite the most sober in the world, I decided to get a tattoo in the kitchen of trailer. Not only is it horribly done tattoo but is of a horrible time in my life."
Let that be a lesson to you, kids.
Clint Fechtner - "..."
There are no words for how tragic this is.
Cory Blake - "Flamin' Seaweed"
In Cory's own words...
Wanted flames... got seaweed. Was done by Rocky, the cracked out tattoo artist that was in downtown point. I think he is still in prison for plotting to kill his ex wife.
Note to self. Don't let Rocky tattoo me.
Crystal Stickle - "Flat Flower"
Y U NO HAVE LINEZ?
Erica Hernandez - "Heartsbreak"
"I've had this HORRIBLE tattoo for almost 5 years... Done by a "professional"... Looks like my 4 year old drew it on with crayons... Nothing worse than having a tattoo artist do **** work because 'it's not the type of work he does.' I would love nothing more than to get this covered, so I can get this horrible memory out of my sight."
Nice of her to include what she'd like on her arm instead.
Jaron Bernette - "Putting the 'Ass' in 'Assassin's Creed'"
"Got this Assassins Creed logo a few years back when I was immersed in video games. It's an eye sore on my forearm."
Next time, just cut off your ring finger. It would look better.
Jon Reissmann - "Crap-Tazz-stic"
Jon keeps it short and sweet...
"Needs to be covered up"
Or set on fire, or dipped in acid, or amputated....
Kesi Krueger - "Where's the weed killer?"
"It's horrible lines color not even background the lines r the worst"
Madchen Kaufman - "Skull****ed"
"This isn't finished at all the line work isn't very good and it need some major color I got it from someone who shop closed"
Sargent Raze - "The Tatmare Before Christmas"
I don't even know what's going on here. Why is Jack Skellington hanging out inside an apple with a ribcage? Is the apple on fire?
Shelley Hill - "Comedy/Tragedy. Never mind. Just Tragic"
No encore for that tattoo artist.
Sonya Sutherland - "What are you looking at?"
Sonya's tat was doomed from the beginning...
"This has been unfinished for a couple years now. I let an ex boyfriend tattoo me and well let's just say he wasn't too experienced. You can't see in the picture but the part that is filled in looks like it was done in crayon. Its very spotty and I would love to be able to get it finished so I can feel comfortable in a swim suit again!"
Stephanie Flores Zdroik - "Bathing not-so-beauty"
Here's the story:
"First tattoo at 18.....the tattoo artist just up and left his shop.....it was never finished!"
There are a couple lessons up above.
1) Never trust an inexperienced, non-licensed schmuck with a tat gun to ink your skin.
2) ONLY go to a proven quality artist like Expressions Ink Tattoo in Wausau.
