Well OP it's a matter of opinion right? If the client was happy that's all that matters.
I was thinking that it could've been horrible taste in what the person wanted. I've heard of really crazy tattoos that I would easily consider horrible, even though they were executed greatly. One such example is a monkey on someone's belly where the belly button is the monkey's anus.
it also could've ended up on a horrible tattoo website. The person with the tattoo doesn't have to be the one to post it there. Also I know a lot of people who can admit their ink is crap. I have one on my shoulder that could possibly be on one of those websites.
If the person who got the tattoo likes it, then it isn't such a problem OP. but maybe tell your friend that it was done at your tattoo parlour, hopefully they'll feel bad.
Like the previous posters said, artwork can be very subjective. Plenty of tattoos that I would call horrible, can be very amazing for others. I guess the question next is whether it was taste or practice. I believe taste was the issue but good luck and don't give up on your work. Continue to learn.
