Life is full of pain, man. As humans, we are born cursed with the knowledge that our existence is finite, and eventually like all things we will fade into obscurity, never having had any real impact on the universe. Or, you know, your teacher mistook you for a goth and you had to explain the difference between My Chemical Romance and Taking Back Sunday. I GET IT. You want to scream out to the world that YOU HURT. And sometimes the best way to express the existential dilemma of perceiving only part of a chaotic universe is through a dark and edgy tattoo. And so, here are some of the saddest emo tattoos.
Look at all that pain. Look at all that hurt. The only thing that could possibly hurt more is getting those tattoos removed once you realize that the tattoo you got when you were 19 and your crush didn’t like you back makes you essentially unhireable when you start looking for a job (unless you’re looking for a job as a tattoo artist, in which case you nailed it). Anyways, what do you want to be when you grow up? Let us know on Twitter at @Smosh!
