Tattoos can be gorgeous and meaningful works of art, but not everyone loves their ink for life. In fact, there are plenty of common tattoos that people tend to regret. Whether it's the tattoo's design, poor quality, or even its placement on the body, some tattoos simply wear out their welcome over time.
To learn more about the most-regretted tattoos, Romper spoke with Dr. David Zweiback, an internist and aesthetic physician who specializes in tattoo removal. Dr. Zweiback provided some excellent insight into the trends and placement areas that simply do not stand the test of time for everybody. For the most part, putting a lot of thought and time into the decision will result in a tattoo you're more likely to love later on. Considering its placement, design, and meaning is pretty crucial.
That said, none of this is meant to shame people with tattoos, or make fun of anyone who happens to have these designs. Tattoo your body however you like, regardless of whether it's currently in style or not. (It's a little weird that something as permanent as tattoos have trends anyway.) But for people who are more risk-averse when it comes to ink, here are the types of tattoos you're most likely to regret.
