Winner announced for ‘sh*****t’ tattoo is a pelican named Tom taking a poo

Is this Australia’s worst tattoo? Inkings of a pelican taking a poo, a VB beer can with a mullet and a Bunnings sausage among the contenders for the country’s most heinous body art

  • Winner announced for the ‘sh*****t’ tattoo in Australia and it’s of a pelican 
  • The animal is depicted taking a poo near its companions – a turtle and gecko
  • Second place went to a pair of stick figures positioned in suggestive poses
  • Tattoos that missed out included a VB can with a mullet and Centrelink logo 

Brave Australians have shown off their questionable tattoos during a search for the country’s worst body art. 

Some of the most heinous examples include a VB beer can with a mullet, a Bunnings sausage and a bizarre depiction of a pelican taking a poo in front of a turtle and a gecko.

Other tattoos considered for the prestigious title were a pair of stick figures engaged in compromising positions and the words ‘Made in K-Town’.

Ben Erwin’s pelican tattoo was named the ‘s**ttest’ in the Northern Territory by the NT News.

Mr Erwin, 29, said he gave himself the multicoloured tattoo about three years ago.

‘I had a mate draw it on my leg and I just stencilled over it,’ he said.

‘They said ”you won’t draw whatever I put on your leg”, so I said ”go for it”.’

Mr Erwin said his girlfriend likes the tattoo but he is sometimes embarrassed to show it to people. 

Second place went to a tattoo with the words ‘me’ and ‘ur mum’ inked under a very suggestive pair of stick figures.

Fortunately it is inked on the back of the left shoulder blade so it can be easily covered up.

One Aussie tossed up between inking a VB can or the Ibis, known as the 'bin chicken', and decided to tattoo the bird sitting on top of the beverage instead

Third place went to a tattoo of the seemingly hand-scrawled phrase, ‘Made in K-Town’.

Although the winners have been announced, there were some close contenders. 

One Aussie tossed up between getting a tattoo of a VB can or one of an ibis, but couldn’t make up their mind and decided to tattoo the bird sitting on top of the beer instead. 

In another embarrassing tattoo, a tourist in Bali got a VB can inked on himself with his friend’s initials over the front, with a long mullet protruding from the top.

Another beer-loving Australian showed off a six-pack of VB bottles on his stomach.

While another tattooed a VB along with a packet of Winfield cigarettes, one made the bold decision to ink Vegemite spread and a pie with tomato sauce on top.
