Oh, drinking and the things it leads to. It's hard to believe these tattoos weren't forced on by some sort of hazing, rather people acting wanting these. Here are 25 bad tattoos that should be pictured next to the Webster definition for the word "regret". From Buddy the Elf, to Joe Dirt, to Clay Aiken to Judge Judy, these are the faces that you never thought you'd see on someone's skin. Here are the worst tattoos of celebrity portraits the Internet could muster. These people could've at least got some hot actresses on their arms, not some ridiculous Joe Dirt type characters.

Willie Nelson is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list 30+ of the Worst Tattoos of Celebrity Faces

This is one of the few tattoos on the list that are actually amazing pieces of art, but it still takes a mega Willie fan to dedicate such a large piece of skin to his wrinkled mug. That person's arm sort of looks like an old, wise tree:

While it's well done, I'd feel a little violated knowing that Will Ferrel's eyes were always staring at me like that if his face was tattooed on me like that.

Alan Alda is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list 30+ of the Worst Tattoos of Celebrity Faces

Upon first glance, this tattoo reminded me of Mr. Larson from Happy Gilmore, the formerly psychotic boss turned Happy's number one fan. But it's actually Alan Alda, best known for his portrayal of Hawkeye Pierce on "M*A*S*H." Which, sounds like it could be in the running for "Most Bad-Ass Television Character Name, Ever." Future list, perhaps? #newlist

Mahatma Gandhi is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list 30+ of the Worst Tattoos of Celebrity Faces

Out of respect for Gandhi, I'm not sure his face should be inked onto your "holier than thou" body. Just a thought.
