It's been a hotly contested battle of the bad tattoos, but THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN! We've got ourselves a winner.

There were many worthy tattoos and stories and entries, many different styles, and many different reasons to want a cover-up, but round after round, one tattoo (well, tattoos) won the title of Worst Tattoo in the Hudson Valley, and the owner will now be the owner of something quite a bit better: a $500 gift certificate to Graceland Tattoo in Wappingers.

So, who is our winner?

Brody B, who brought us this tattoo:

Thanks to everyone who participated by sending in their photos, voting, checking it out, and of course, thanks to Graceland for A.) being awesome and B.) making this whole thing possible.

I can't wait to see what Brody gets done to cover this thing up.

Now, if you've ever had questions about coverups, here, take a look at this video of Adam from Graceland giving you the lowdown:
