It's true that, when you get a tattoo, it's quite easy to make a rash decision that you regret later. A lot of celebrities have fallen into this trap and subsequently done their best to get rid of their body tattoos. Some celebrities have had them lasered off, when this was possible, while others have covered them up with make-up.
Permanent tattoos, as the name says, are intended to stay with you for life, and you have a problem when you don't like them anymore, or worse, when their message no longer suits you. For some stars, permanent tattoos seemed like a great idea initially, but life has shown them that they're better off thinking twice before getting them.
Either they didn't choose the right tattoo artist, or the message of their tattoos didn't fit afterward, or they simply became unsightly for them, these five stars presented below by "Click for Women" did their best to get rid of some of their tattoos.
