Tattoos come in all shapes and sizes. And most of the time, they look awesome – so it’s no wonder that the tattoo industry is so huge. In the U.S. alone, $1.6 billion is spent every year on ink, in fact, while 36 percent of adults aged 18 to 25 have at least some body art.

It’s important to remember that tattoos are permanent, though; after all, that’s the whole point. As such, it’s a pretty big decision to make. However, it’s one that people often take all too lightly. Indeed, not everyone is happy with the finished result. Whether it’s a poor choice of subject matter or just a hash job by the artist, there are plenty of reasons why someone might feel regret about their tattoo.
