Jessica Alba 1
“You’re never going to be in the same place emotionally and mentally at 18 that you are at 20 or 25 or 30. Something that’s meaningful to you when you’re younger is not going to be meaningful to you five years later. Understand that tattoos are forever. I have a few tattoos. I’m not into them now the way that I was,” Alba told Allure magazine.
Demi Lovato 2
Lovato got 12 tattoos before the age of 20 and has even considered having some of them removed. “I’ve thought about it before because you know, when I get older I don’t know if I want to have ‘rock and roll’ on my middle finger,” she said during an appearance on LIVE! With Kelly and Michael. “But I’m young and I can rock it now. When I get older, I can worry about it later.”
Eva Longoria 3
Longoria had three tattoos honoring her marriage when she was still married to NBA player Tony Parker. Fortunately, these things aren’t as permanent as they used to be, and she was eventually able to get all three tats removed. But it took a few years.
Christina Aguilera 5
Though she’s never actually expressed regretting a tattoo of her ex-husband Jordan Bratman’s initial, you have to assume she did considering they are no longer together. The good thing is that in Hebrew the combination of the characters also means “12.”
Justin Bieber 6
The Biebz has a number of religious tattoos all over his body but he also happens to have one of his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez on his wrist. “This is my ex-girlfriend, so I tried to cut her face up with some shading, but people still know,” he told GQ. Seriously, why do people do this?
Nicole Richie 7
Back in 2013, Richie expressed regret for getting cross tattoo (a.k.a tramp stamp) right above her butt crack. “It just means a certain thing, and I don’t want to be part of that group, she said in an episode of her former AOL web series #CandidlyNicole. She eventually had it removed.
Kelly Osbourne 8
Remember when Osbourne had a bunch of random tattoos everywhere? Well, she actually had most of them removed, including the keyboard on her right forearm. “I did the crime, I am now doing the time,” she wrote back when she was doing laser treatment to get them off.
