"You should have tried to talk him outta that," one Instagram user told Johnson, as another added, "whyyyyy his face? 🤦🏽♀️😩 Anywhere but the face…or neck🤦🏽♀️ [because] all she [is going to] do is play in it and use him up then leave him😮💨."
"Great tattoo; concerned about Dennis, though," a third person noted, praising the actual artistry behind the ink work, while someone claimed, "drugs make you do stupid things honestly."
Rodman has opened up about his battle with alcohol addiction in the past, and has been in and out of rehab on numerous occasions.
Others blamed Rodman's leading lady for allowing him to get the tattoo in the first place, writing: "His girlfriend should have been against that. Shows her immaturity to NOT STOP him from doing this"
One fan's superstitious beliefs kicked in, as they stated, "I can see the cover up coming. Never tattoo someones name or picture to your body!"
Many people strongly believe that once a significant other's name or face is tattooed on a person's body, problems inevitably begin to occur.
