As we all know, tattoos come with huge potential to go terribly wrong. For the victim, a lifetime of embarrassment or a painful and expensive removal operation awaits. But for the rest of us, laughs are guaranteed.
The latest victim to be added to the long list is an Oasis fan who presumably couldn't decide whether to get Liam or Noel inked on their skin, so just decided to plump for Harry Potter and Jimmy Carr instead.
A picture of the terrible tats was shared on Twitter by Oasis fan page, @MainlyOasis, so unfortunately we don't know who they belong to... and you'd imagine the owner would like to keep it that way.
The photo was shared with the caption: "When you ask for a tattoo of the Gallagher brothers but get Jimmy Carr and Harry Potter instead."

Oh dear. That's really not gone well, has it?
Unless of course the poor bugger in question did ask for Jimmy Carr and Harry Potter, in which case, we should be applauding the tattoo artist's handiwork.
Others reckon 'Liam' looks more like Rose West than Harry Potter, and you've got to hope they didn't ask for that - so no medals for this tattoo studio.
It's extra disappointing really when you consider that the Gallagher brothers are known for their style and swagger, which the likes of Harry Potter and Rose West really are not.
The brothers have appeared on the front covers of countless magazines through the years and were rarely out of the public eye during the 90s, so the inker can't complain of a lack of source material. Perhaps they couldn't see properly cos of the suuunshiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine?!
There also appears to be a lump of bird shit in Liam's hair, and we all know the rock n' roll star wouldn't approve of that.
It's not even clear whereabouts these abominations have been etched. The smart money says forearms or calves, and you'd hope for the poor pleb's sake it's the latter so they can get those mockeries nice and covered.
That said, the victim is no likely the proud owner of a massive parka, so Jimmy and Harry can stay nicely nestled away.
So all is not lost, some might say.
