If there's one thing I love about parties, aside from the punch and potential to make out with a stranger in the coatroom, it's the parting gifts, like a fresh dick tattoo drawn on by a drunk friend with a DIY tattoo gun.

That's what happened when Holly Aston, then 17, allowed her friends to go H.A.M. with the tattoo gun she bought online for about $100, inking an active-looking penis on her shoulder and the word 'Dyke' on her ankle.

Via The Mirror:

"I knew what they were doing and didn't mind at the time. It was just a joke and I thought it was funny.

"But then I woke up the next day, looked at it and thought 'Oh God, what have I done?'.

"The joke was over and it really wasn't funny anymore."

Jokes end, as do parties. Le sigh.

Fortunately for Holly, a show called "Bodyshockers" has taken pity and is covering the cost of lasering off three of her tattoos (the dick, the 'Dyke,' and some sort of cartoon that was supposed to be Storm from X-Men but apparently didn't come out looking as such, as DIY tattoos tend to not look).
