Is Terrible Tattoo worth it?

It seems to give some nice resistance bonuses but is it worth the curse?

I'm pretty sure it make you take more damage and have less resistance.

Well, then I read the signs on those resistances wrong. It seemed to good to be true anyways.

You're misreading the effect. Assuming you're looking at the equipment effects sticky, If an item says -# , it means it reduces damage you take of that type or reduces your chance of being afflicted by that status. The Terrible Tattoo has +#, meaning it increases the damage you take and your chance of being hit with status conditions.

In other words, no, don't equip it.

They are worth keeping for alchemy purposes though!

Equip cursed items at your own risk, unless it is for the quest where you have to equip a bunch of cursed items.

You just better keep it and any other terrible tattoos you can find. they'll be very useful for a certain recipe later. (assuming you just got your first...)

You can also upgrade them to an uncursed tattoo using alchemy that is better,and keep your extras for late post-game alchemy recipes.

Once you are at the near end game, you would be able to farm the tattoo for recipe (if you want it that early). Otherwise, you can find a mid-high quality grotto to farm it as well. It is not a difficult ingredient to find after all. But no, I deny to equip any cursed item!!
