Some tattoos are going to be regrettable, no matter how excited you are to get them. Before you start shopping around for artists, check out these popular tattoo fails:

  1. Partner's Name

No matter how deeply in love you are with your partner, you shouldn't express your affection through ink. Getting a partner's name is considered a bad luck tattoo - some even believe that it marks the beginning of the end of your beautiful relationship. And nothing will make a break-up worse than a permanent reminder on your bicep.   

  1. Wrong Spelling

If there is any script in your tattoo, you need to double-check your spelling before you decide to get it done. You can't count on the artist to check it for you. You'd hate to find out that you have a typo on your wrist after posting a photo on Instagram. 

  1. Bad Translation 

It's even easier to make a mistake when you don't know the language. Earlier this year, the singer Ariana Grande learned this the hard way. After posting a photo of her new Japanese palm tattoo on Instagram, fans pointed out that the kanji characters actually translated to barbeque grill and not "7 Rings" as she'd intended.

If you're not fluent in another language, you should do a lot of research ahead of your appointment to make sure it's perfect. Better yet, rethink a tattoo that you can't read. It could be an advertisement for a BBQ.

  1. Face and Neck Tattoos 

Many artists refuse to tattoo a client's neck or face, especially if it's their first time. Despite their growing popularity, these types of tattoos can be obstacles for employment, hobbies and other opportunities. They carry a high risk that you might not be ready to take. 

What if you regret getting your tattoo?

It happens. Maybe you got caught up in a trend that doesn't appeal to you anymore, or maybe you decided to get an inside joke inked on your chest after having a few too many drinks. Whatever the reason, you can erase that mistake from your skin and get rid of that unwanted tattoo fast with laser removal treatment. 

When you visit a reputable medical laser clinic with state-of-the-art equipment, you are bound to get great results. There will be very low chances of complications, like scarring. At most, you will likely experience side-effects like tenderness and swelling - not too different from the feeling of getting a tattoo. 

The removal method will be a lot more effective than tattoo removal creams and a lot less damaging than salabrasion and dermabrasion. If you can't get the unwanted tattoo covered up, this is your best shot at being satisfied with your skin.  

If you want to lessen your chances of tattoo disappointment, make sure to do your research, pick a safe location and never - this means never - get your partner's name permanently etched into your body. Follow these basic rules and you will have a greater chance of loving your decision years down the line.
