10+ Celebrities Who Regret Their Tattoos

A tattoo can be a beautiful thing. They're living pieces of art and can serve as an ode and a reminder to cherished memories and loved ones.

Most of the time, however, a tattoo becomes a decision most live to regret. Have a look and check out these 10+ celebrities who regret getting their tattoos.

Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran's tattoos are so bad, that even his own tattoo artist, Kevin Paul, has come forward to express his opinions.

In an e-mail interview with the Daily Mirror, Paul called Sheeran's tattoos [expletive] and says he regrets inking the talented singer.

Zoë Kravitz

Even though Zoë admits that she has a soft spot for bad tattoos, she was still willing to part with the Arabic script she had inscribed on the back of her left shoulder.

The tat was supposed to say "let love rule," but it was grammatically incorrect.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina still has plenty of tattoos and loves them all. That is, all except for one.

Years before she became the Hollywood A-lister that she is, the renowned actress had a giant Billy Bob Thornton tattoo on her forearm. She's since had it lasered off

Blake Shelton

Blake has spoken openly and honestly about the disdain he has for the tattoo on his forearm.

The way Blake has explained it, the tattoo was supposed to be deer tracks. He also admits to having been drinking at that time.

Nicki Minaj

When talking about the Chinese writing on her bicep, Nicki told Billboard that:

“I wish I never got the tattoo because it’s on my arm. So when I wanna wear a beautiful evening gown and go out with the queen, she doesn’t like my tattoo too much."

Pete Davidson

Pete Davidson got the black heart tattoo that you see on his neck in order to cover up a pair of bunny ears.

The only unfortunate thing is that Pete got the matching black heart with his now ex-fiancee, Ariana Grande.

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly was incredibly young when she first began tattooing herself and has since begun the painful process of having several of them removed.

These include a script that reads "Lovely" as well as a colorful keyboard on her forearm.

50 Cent

50 Cent is a legend. But since the hip-hop icon is focusing more on his acting career these days, he's begun removing his tattoos in order to avoid spending countless hours in the makeup chair covering them up.

Megan Fox

At one point, Megan had a giant tattoo of Marilyn Monroe on her forearm that she's since had removed.

Megan told Marie Claire that Marilyn was a "disturbed" person and didn't want to invite that type of negative energy into her life.

Demi Lovato

Let Demi Lovato be a warning to all you young bloods out there who are chomping at the bit to get inked.

Demi had 12 tattoos before she turned 20-years-old and she regrets them all. So kids, do yourselves a favor and be patient.

Jessica Alba

Jessica has a bow tattooed in the middle of her back, as well as a small bouquet of flowers at the base of her neck.

She told Refinery 29 that “I got it when I was, like, 17 and I’m so irritated that I got it."

Kaley Cuoco

Shortly after her first marriage to tennis pro, Ryan Sweeting, Kaley got the date of their wedding tattooed in Roman Numerals on the back of her neck.

The couple is since divorced and Kaley covered up the tattoo with a moth.

Jenifer Lawrence

Jennifer made a pact with her Hunger Games co-stars to get tatted up once the film had wrapped.

J-Law opted to get the molecular formula for water tatted on her wrist, but sadly the artist inked the 2 in the wrong spot.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande was originally trying to tattoo "7 Rings" on her hand. Unfortunately, the Asian characters Ari selected ended up translating to 'shichirin' — a small charcoal grill.

Ari was mocked heavily across social media platforms and has since corrected the spelling mistake.

Justin Bieber

Justin has a tattoo of his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, on his left wrist.

Justin says that he tried to cover up the tat of Selena's face with some shading, but admits that people still know what it really is.

Iggy Azalaea

Back when Iggy and hip-hop artist A$AP Rocky were an item, she had the title of his latest album tattooed on her fingers; "Live. Love. A$AP."

In the wake of their breakup, Iggy began the painful process to have it lasered off her fingers.

Nicole Richie

Nicole didn't mince words when she spoke to Into The Gloss about her choice of tattoos: “I was a 19-year-old idiot when I got this tattoo on the back of my neck," she said.

Don't be so hard on yourself, Nicole! We all make mistakes.

Jessie J

Jessie had the lyrics to one of her songs tattooed on her body, but made the mistake of misspelling "lose" as "loose."

The tattoo artist either didn't notice or didn't care, which is why Jessie is now prone to wearing high-waisted pants.

Melanie Griffith

Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas were wed in the mid-90s and stayed together for 10 years. In the wake of their split, Melanie erased Antonio's name from the heart tattoo on her bicep.

Later on, she had the entire tattoo erased.

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria impulsively tattooed a small star on the inside of her wrist and over the years, she began to grow tired of it.

The former star of Desperate Housewives documented the entire laser removal process via Snap Chat.

Heidi Klum

Heidi once had a spiral tribal design that served as a living testament to her and her ex-husband Seal's wedding vows.

Not long after the couple divorced back in 2014, Heidi began the process of having her ink removed.

Mark Wahlberg

In his youth, Mark Wahlberg was covered in tattoos and absolutely loved them. But as he got older and became a father, his views changed.

As a way of discouraging his kids from getting tattoos, Mark made his sons accompany him to the laser removal session.

Khloe Kardashian

Khloe has undergone the process to have two tattoos removed. The reality-TV mogul no longer sports the initials of her ex-husband Lamar Odom on her wrist, and her "daddy" tramp stamp is now also a thing of the past.

Britney Spears

Britney captioned the post, "Albert Einstein once said[sic] "God does not play dice with the universe" …. so maybe I shouldn’t have gotten the pink dice 7 on my left arm 🤔🤔🤔🤔🎲🎲 !!!!!

The ironic part is that Britney doesn't even like tattoos!

Hayden Panettiere

Hayden's tattoo is a delightfully ironic piece of scripture, written in Italian. Properly translated, the phrase literally means "Live without regrets."

Unfortunately, the third word is misspelled with an extra "i." Because of this, Hayden had the tattoo removed.

Kat Von D

Kat Von D thought that it would be a good idea to have the fifth-grade photo of her then-husband Jesse James tattooed just under her armpit.

You can get a much better look at the removal process here.

Sarah Hyland

If you think that getting a tattoo is painful, you better hope that you never have to get it removed.

As is clear to see from Sarah's tearful reaction, the laser treatment removal is almost unbearable.

Pamela Anderson

Pam Anderson's barbed-wire tattoo was as much a part of her image as is Cindy Crawford's mole.

But after having the memento for nearly two decades, the former Baywatch babe decided that enough was enough and decided to have it removed.

Pharrell Williams

Let this be a warning for anyone considering a sleeve tattoo — make sure you're certain. The last thing you'd want is to wind up like Pharrell and have to be bandaged from your fingertips to your shoulders in order to cover the laser burns.

Asia Argento

Asia Argento and Rose McGowan were best friends at one point in time, they even got matching tattoos to commemorate their friendship.

But when their relationship soured, Asia decided that it was time to have the ink permanently removed.

Nick Lachey

This one kind of makes me sad. I was the biggest 98 Degrees fan and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Plus, if Nick was going to get any tattoo removed, why didn't he start with the tribal armband? Just saying...
