We’ve all done stupid things in our time. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about, it happens to the best of us. Love – or alcohol – can have big effects on us, especially when we’re young and naive.
So having said that, we’ve come up with 5 tattoos you should get removed. If you have any of the following tats, you should definitely consider giving us a call to see how we can help you out.
1 The barbed wire
This tattoo was famously very popular around the 90s, and even Pamela Anderson had this tattooed around her left bicep – although she later got it removed for obvious reasons. However, this didn’t stop many others from copying her.
The armband did hold a certain sex appeal for a while, especially back in its heyday, but its appeal is pretty much long gone now.
2 A mythical creature
Many of us will go through the stage of wanting to emblazen ourselves with a favourite animal while we’re young and carefree. A lion to show how courageous and brave we are, or a dolphin to show we’re intelligent. Maybe even a bird to show we’re young and wild and free.
But as we grow, we can find ourselves falling out of love with these animals and consequently wanting them removed.
3 A Chinese symbol
Everybody seems to have one of these tattoos, and it’s usually the Chinese character that represents peace, compassion, or strength.
That is generally speaking. Some may be completely oblivious to what the symbol says – probably your favourite order at your local takeaway – and just thought it looked cool at the time. Unfortunately, it doesn’t anymore.
4 Any kind of face tattoo
If you’re not a Mike Tyson impersonator, Mike Tyson himself, or a tattoo artist but have somehow managed to get a tattoo on your face, you should probably think about getting it removed.
Leave the tear drops for the rappers and keep your face clean and tattoo free. Or use your body as your canvas instead.
5 Your ex’s name
This is the most obvious tattoo mistake of all time. That time where you might have pushed the boat out a bit and got a tattoo of your ex’s name – Caitlyn or Tyrese or whatever their name was.
It’s one of the most common things people in love do. They can’t wait to commemorate the name of the person they love on their body. They hold no regrets, except for when they break up.
