When a Kanji/Hanzi tattoo spokes for itself

Recently, while I was looking for some stupid tattoos to make fun of them I've found this little gem:

First of all, the tattoo is pretty ugly, but this is just a little problem. The real problem is his meaning. The owner claims that this Hanzi means "friend" or "friendship" but it's real meaning is "disgraceful" or "ugly" (俦 - "friend, mate" and 醜 - "ugly" are homophones).

Do you see the irony here? This dude went to a tattoo parlor to get a nice Hanzi Tattoo and got instead a hideous tattoo which means ugly :)) At least, this poor tattoo is a honest one. And, besides, the real beauty comes from within :))

Yes, it's correct. But it's weird.
