#6 Cheryl Cole
What does it take to turn a national sweetheart and beloved popstar into a laughing stock? One bad tattoo. Oh, let us fix that. One giant bad tattoo. British singer Cheryl Cole (also known as Cheryl Tweedy, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini or simply Cheryl) decided to put a huge array of red roses on her lower back side and, to quote her band Girls Aloud, “caused a controversy.” To this day Cheryl’s roses-covered butt is considered the worst celebrity tattoo decision.
Not that the singer cares for the world’s opinion. As she revealed on a TV show, she got the idea for the big-ass tattoo after she got seriously sick with malaria — it was part of her “everything I want to do” list. In case you actually like the design, you should note that it took three sessions to make and cost £14,000. And since Cheryl’s mostly endorsing hair and make-up products these days, her booty doesn’t get in the way of career opportunities.
