Failure group #1: Angelina Jolie (at early age)
Sexy icon Angelina at her early age had a Chinese Tattoo “Death” at her back. The main reason for Chinese tattoo fails is the lack of knowledge about the meaning behind the character. Luckily, she did remove this tattoo.
Failure group#2: Justin Bieber
In this photo Justin Bieber has Chinese tattoo written in simplified character meaning “Fear/Terrify”. Do you want a tattoo which has negative meaning?
Failure group #3: Justin Timberlake
On Justin’s arm the tattoo “Ice Skating” is a fake tattoo for the sake of filming, but it may be a joke if it is a real Chinese tattoo which has no positive meaning at all. But if you want to show others what kind of sport you like you can get it as a tattoo.
