One of the most ill-advised celebrity tattoos is Mike Tyson's tribal face tattoo. The face is definitely one of those areas from which you should banish needles and ink, but since Mike's not the smartest ear-eater in the world, he gets a pass.

Besides, if anyone did think it was the worst idea to ever be idea'd (that's a word now), they probably wouldn't tell him, lest they get the ass-beating of a lifetime. But we can say it because we're chicks, and we're pretty sure Mike wouldn't hit a woman. Again, anyway.

Thankfully for Tyson, the tat has given him something of a pop-culture renaissance. It featured prominently in the film 'The Hangover 2' and in a recent episode of 'How I Met Your Mother.' So if anything, it helped his comedy career -- because it's so damned funny.
