One diehard My Chemical Romance fan received some undue fame recently thanks to a horrendous tattoo.

The Buzzfeed writer that unveiled the atrocity titled the article "The Best 'My Chemical Romance' Tattoo You'll Ever See" but by "best," he clearly meant, "Oh dear God, what were you thinking?!"

As it turns out, this girl wasn't the only person to make a permanently bad decision by defacing her body with her favorite band. 

We hunted high and low to bring you this list of the nine worst musical tattoos we could find. Check it out, laugh, and then make jokes in the comments. We encourage it.

9. Yes, it took us a bit to realize that "3EB" stands for "Third Eye Blind." Having to explain your tattoo is probably not a good way to start an artistic concept.

8. It's a bad idea to let a 5-year-old draw a Green Day sketch on your back. It's an even worse idea to have it tattooed.
7. Obsessed with boy bands much?

5. The Counting Crows have held their own weight over the years, but Adam Duritz is not worth permanent ridicule.

4. We thought the Backstreet Boys tattoo from #7 was the ultimate example of fandom. We were wrong.
3. How long do you think it will take this man to regret this decision?
