World’s worst portrait tattoo fixed for free




You’ve seen the above tattoo before, and it’s not only hideous, it’s an affront to the memory of the beautiful woman who died way too young. So Scott Versago of Empire Ink in Akron, Ohio offered to fix it for free.

I got to tackle the official “#1 worst portrait tattoo in the world” today. I’m sure you’ve all seen it a million times online, as had I. I couldn’t believe my eyes when this guy walked in and showed me this project. I think my jaw literally hit the floor. He went on to tell me the story behind the portrait; He had just married his beautiful wife and not even three months afterwards she was killed in a horrible house fire accident leaving him to raise their three children alone. Shortly after he went to a local tattoo studio to memorialize his wife and was left with this abomination. He later returned to that studio for one more session, thinking that perhaps “he had done something wrong in the healing of the tattoo” and they butchered it even more the second time. Finally, he drove all the way to my studio, Empire Ink, just to meet me and to see what his options were. Touched by his story, I gifted the entire project to him for free. Now he has closure and I have an amazing story to add to my portfolio!

2. A remarkable transformation.

Empathy, and charity, takes on many forms.

A hat tip, and a toast, to Mr Versago . . . .
