I spent £285 on a tribute tattoo for my great-gran when I was 18….it hasn't aged well, people are so mean about it

IT's no surprise that some people can take years settling on a tattoo design.

After all, it's going to be on you for life.


But Jessika Gancedo, who is from the US goes by the acronym @jessikabaileyg on TikTok, was 18-years-old when she had her heart set on getting a sweet tribute tattoo of an Iris flower with wings for her great gran.

In a short video, she says how she paid £285 for the inking – only to regret it years later when she realised it looked like something completely different.

"I did not research the tattoo artist," she explains.

"I did not come in with a picture reference. I came in with an idea and the tattoo was only £285 [$350]."

"It is supposed to be an Iris flower with wings in tribute to my great-grandmother, Iris, and just know that immediately, whenever I got it and walked over to my dad to show him, he said, 'oh yeah, it's a tribute to her cabbage patch kid'."

She continues: "I've been in two tattoo artists. I'm talking about a coverup. The first one said, 'oh yeah, we can cover that pretty easily. It's pretty faded.'

"But the second one said it's going to have to be pretty big though. The second one also told me that it looks like a 30-year-old tattoo.

I will say my dad has a worse one than this. So I guess bad tattoos just run in the family."
