Getting a tattoo is a serious decision and a serious commitment. You are openly agreeing to get something put on your skin that will last forever. So you need to think about whether what you're getting will matter to you in 10 years, or if it will lose its value.
It's basically like getting married if you think about it as a long-term commitment.
But, just as you can escape a marriage with a divorce, you can also cover up a tattoo that you realize was a pretty bad decision at the time you got it.
It would be smarter not to get a dumb tattoo in the first place, which is why you need to think long and hard about it before you get one.
But, if you did get something you regret, no worries – there are cover-up tattoos you can get to get rid of your regrets!
In this video, two women get some regrettable tattoos covered up with something they think is better or more appropriate – and the afters are way better than the befores!
