Celebrities are just like us. They have wants, needs, and at least once in their lifetime have locked their keys inside their car. That also means they're prone to making mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes are some truly awful tattoos.
There's a new season of Tattoo Nightmares
premiering on May 28 at 10/9c
which seeks to undo the damage from the awful decisions regular folks like you and me have made in the tattoo parlor. But celebrities could use some fixing too. Until we get around to doing a star-studded season, here are some of the more infamous tats that could use a good cover-up or removal.THE TRIBAL TAT ON MIKE TYSON'S FACE

Tyson was at a crossroads in his life and career when he did what everyone does when they've got their stuff together: he got a tattoo on his face. Oh, Mike.CLASSY DUDE CHRIS BROWN'S BATTERED WOMAN

After becoming something of a pariah after he was arrested after a dispute with once and future girlfriend Rihanna, Chris Brown decided that he'd had enough of people thinking he was an insensitive jerk. So he got a tattoo of a woman who resembles Rihanna with a battered face. Because nothing says remorse like getting a tattoo that appears to commemorate the crime you allegedly committed

Well, we THINK that's Johnny Cash. That's what Belcher says, anyway, but it's so awful we can't really be 100% sure. It might also be Kim Jong Il, Otho from "Beetlejuice," or Johnny Cash after having four of his wisdom teeth removed and still being high from the gas. Or it's Elvis on the toilet. Bottom line is that it just doesn't look good.LIVE WITHOUT REGREETS

Former "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere made the same mistake a lot of people do: they got a tattoo of a phrase in another language. This rarely ends well. In her case, she got the phrase "Vivere senza rimpiantii" tattooed on her person. In Italian, it roughly translates to "live without regrets." And we do mean roughly, because it's spelled wrong – it should be "rimpianti." Oops!GUCCI MANE SCREAMS FOR ICE CREAM
Look, guys, just don't get face tattoos, okay? It makes you look insane and it only gets worse as you get older. We don't know what Gucci Mane was thinking when he got an ice cream cone tattooed on his face with the phrase "BRRRRR" under it, except to say that it's true that ice cream is supposed to be cold.KC + EP 4-EVA
Fred Durst got a portrait of Kurt Cobain and Elvis Presley chilling out with each other on his chest. Although one can imagine that if there was a conversation between those two in the afterlife, Limp Bizkit is at the very bottom of the list of things they'd talk about."SUCK IT"
Professional party girl Ke$ha jumped on the trend of the inner lower-lip trend with the words "SUCK IT." Which is…how do we put this? Very, very classy and dignified. Go on, girl.GET IT? IT'S MEEEEE!

Jackass alum and perennial goofball Steve-O got a goofy rendering of himself inked on his back. It's funny for all of a second, then gets sad when you realize it's there forever.YES I MARRIED HER

Tom Arnold was so smitten with then-wife Roseanne that to prove his love, he got a tattoo of her. Unfortunately it wasn't flattering, as she seemed to be sporting an insincere smile and for some reason the artist gave her a Beatles haircut. Then there's the issue that, being actors, the marriage didn't last very long.
