YouTubers have been known to get bizarre to downright outlandish tattoos whether on a dare, to go with a trend, or otherwise, making professional artists raise their brow when being shown some of their ink.

Inked Magazine sat down numerous tattoo artist to give their thoughts on some of the more creative designs YouTubers have come up with, leading to hilarious reactions and scathing critiques.


The group of artists were immediately dumped into the fire as they were stunned to see Elijah Daniel’s simple tattoo that spelled “Phag” above his eyebrow. Most of the artists either scoffed or were confused as to why he chose to get that on his face.

Some artists were speechless from this YouTuber’s choice of tag.
Inked YTA lot of the artists love the heavy use of black and grays to cover the body.

Though the opposite was true for Model and YouTuber Monami Forest’ incredible and daring tattoos that cover most of her body, and the artists were impressed with her intricate designs.


“I like the fact that she’s 100% blasted,” Kevin Laroy said. “Like there’s no empty spaces and it’s all good work… All her shit looks well thought out, well planned, well placed.”

The tattoo veterans were torn with Jeffree Star’s ensemble of portraits ranging from Jesus Kurt Kobain to Audrey Hepburn. Though most were loving the paid homages and the quality of his portraits, others didn’t feel his art had much composition going for it.

Inked YTArtists really liked the detail in Star’s tattoos.

“He’s covered in a lot of really great work… I think it’s a bit hodgepodge for me,” Joe Capobianco said. “It’s almost like, prison style.”


As for Jake Paul’s tattoo featuring the world with a keyhole on it being eaten by a dinosaur’s skull, while the imagery was on point, some thought it needed some mind of meaning.

“That’s your average client that he wants to be deep with that tattoo, that any truck driver has,” Lalo Yunda said.

The panel of tattoo artists generally liked PewDiePie’s small church with a fiend poking from the top. Though some thought it could have been placed somewhere better, the simple design and contrasting imagery intrigued the veteran artists.


“That’s actually a pretty dope tattoo,” Daniel Silva. “It’s definitely not my speed but it’s done well, it’s a little artistic. He gets a pass.”

YouTuber’s might not all have the best ideas come to fruition with their tattoos, but the artists definitely saw some gems among the content creators.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
