#6 It's Not only Human Portraits That are Messed Up 

"Apparently one of our classmates became a tattoo "artist" after high school." It is necessary to be wary of whom you entrust the mission of tattooing you, even if you know the tattooist well...Because even the portrait of your dog can turn into a real disaster!
