The Skywalker saga may have ended with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but its legacy will live on… No, not just on The Mandalorian, but in the form of tattoos, of course! But even though fans have the best intentions when they adorn their bodies, they sometimes get the worst Star Wars Tattoos ever.
The internet is no stranger to tattoo fails, whether the failure was intended or came by accident. Misspellings, lopsided portraits, discoloration — the opportunities are endless. Check out some of our favorite Star Wars Tattoo fails below. Starting with…
This is on the more tame side of the spectrum of Star Wars tattoo fails, but still offputting nonetheless. Maybe it’s the lack of uniform linework, the floating “Wars” or the missed opportunity to get the signature Star Wars logo inked instead.
Chewbacca — A Star in Many Star Wars Tattoo Fails
We aren’t quite sure if that’s an Italian or Mexican flag behind Chewbacca, but we just want to know why this individual decided to combine the two in one tattoo.
If you thought one portrait of Chewbacca was enough for a tattoo fail, you’re wrong. Chewbacca will never be lonely in this tattoo when he has a whole family by his side. (And, yes, he has a family. Didn’t you watch the Star Wars Christmas Special?)
Boba Fett has definitely seen better days.
The Alliance Starbird — a Focal Point For the Bleak
We aren’t sure if this person meant to simultaneously claim allegiance to the Rebel Alliance and their standing as a Jedi, or if they just thought that they were the same thing.
The Alliance Starbird, also known as the Phoenix, is seen in the above tattoo. It’s similarity to a rising phoenix symbolizes the Alliance’s goal for the Galactic Republic to rise again.
If you have trypophobia – the fear of holes – this tattoo alone will give you the heebie-jeebies.
There’s just something so painful-looking about this tattoo. The destruction of the Death Star is often celebrated, but there’s something holding us back on this tattoo.
There is no doubt about this individual’s allegiance to Princess Leia and the rebellion.
The Rebel Alliance is supposed to offer us hope, but these Star Wars tattoo fails are just leaving us in despair. Keep clicking for more!
Darth Daddy, the Father Figure in Many Star Wars Tattoo Fails
“I am your father” will forever be one of the most famous movie lines of all time, but this tattoo takes Darth Vader’s line to new heights. Maybe in another universe, Vader would have spoken these lines instead.
Say goodbye to the classic and sleek design of Darth Vader we all love (and sometimes fear). Some things are better left untouched…or uninked.
Maybe this tattoo predicted Disney purchasing Lucas Films before it was even an idea. This inked collaboration of two well-loved franchises has us confused. Why does Pooh look so content in the hands of Vader?
Minion Vader is something we never thought possible. One has to wonder….what would he possibly sound like?
This tattoo fail is nothing short of nightmare fuel. In what world are C-3PO and R2-D2 not the best of buds in android form, or at least going past the usual funny banter?
We aren’t claiming this fail for inking one of the more iconic scenes of the franchise, where Princess Leia sends a message to Obi-Wan Kenobi through R2-D2, but for not giving it the justice it deserves.
This is another tattoo rendition of the same scene in the previous tattoo. We aren’t quite sure why scarlet red was the color of choice when it came to contour in this one.
There are plenty of offputting things about this tattoo. Why is only the top of Leia’s hair colored in? When did she get so ripped? Why does a lifeless Jabba have to be lurking in the back? These questions will forever remain unanswered, just as this tattoo fail will be forever inked.
It seems the beauty of Princess Leia was lost in this tattoo attempt.
The LEGO branch of the franchise is much-loved, but we can’t say the same for this tattoo. It’s hard to imagine anyone can say the same — associating the rebel leaders with thugs just doesn’t seem right.
Couple tattoos often top the lists of cringe-worthy tattoos and tattoo fails.
This traditional tattoo of Anakin and Padme can be seen as a success, but it’s kind of hard to recognize the famous characters at first glance.
Not all tattoos are made equal and while the effort can be seen in this more elaborate piece, but it lacks the detailing that makes many tattoos…great.
We’re sure there’s a good story behind this tattoo of this elephant putting a walker in a chokehold, but it’s lost on us.
