I have a thing about tattoos, especially original ones that are unique to the person sporting them. The idea that a person can alter the skin they are in and make something new our of their own body is really quite incredible. I have one tattoo that I got after the age of 30 and I do not regret it for a second.
That said, many other people do. My husband and I got ours together after talking about it for years. We designed it ourselves. It's our initials split in half so that we each have a tribal design that means nothing unless we are together. Immediately after we got it on our seventh wedding anniversary, everyone asked us if we would hate it in our 80s.
My answer: Hell no. But there are those who do regret their tats. But they shouldn't. Here are 5 reasons not to regret that tattoo.
Obviously, the woman with the star tattoos on her face may have some regrets, but overall, life shouldn't be full of regrets. We should appreciate our youthful decisions for what they were. Even if they are more or less “permanent.”
