Tattoos used to be forever. But for some people, tattoos become permanent reminders of a big mistake. Breakups and lifestyle changes can mean the design (especially if it’s a name) and location of your tattoo now just causes embarrassment.

Tattoos are very popular, because having a beautiful, meaningful design permanently inked onto your skin can be a fantastic means of self-expression. However, many people regret their ink as they age, and go to great lengths to cover up their tattoos. Tattoos may become obsolete, such as Johnny Depp’s now-infamous “Winona Forever”. Tattoos may even be misspelled, such as Rhianna’s “forgiveness” which was misspelled in Sanskrit. Regretted tattoos can be concealed under clothing, covered up with more ink, or even removed with laser technology. This tattoo removal technology is very effective, but of course it is preferable to ensure you get a tattoo you will love forever.
