Did you get tattoo'ed when you were younger and now hate them?

Also, where did you get tattoo'ed and with your body changing shape over the years, did your tattoo change shape also? Do you wish you could get it/them removed?

  • I was tattoo'ed at 18. I have a small group of flowers right above my butt crack and I totally forget that its there. I still like it. I have had 2 children and put on a bit of weight and it has not changed. ;)

  • I was 21 with my first and it's on my right lower leg on the side and no I don't want to remove it and yes it needs touched up. My second one I got In January on my left lower leg on the side and I won't regret or have it removed either, it's has roses and a ribbon through it with my children's name.

  • I like all the tattoos I have and none have changed shape. I have one in the middle of my lower back (tramp stamp), shoulder, and ankle. I'm considering getting another but I'm ust not sure at this point. You just have to be really sure about what you're getting.

  • I have 6 tattoos, some of them old (the oldest is 14 years now) and some of them new. I don't regret any of them. I love my tattoos. Other than some fading, they have all held up pretty okay over time and with age. Well, with the exception of the one on my stomach. Stretch marks developed along the ink lines when I was pregnant, so that one's not looking too hot. But it's not terrible. Could be worse. It looks okay from a distance... lol. I've been toying with the idea of looking into a touch up, but I'm not sure it can be fixed. At any rate, I'm not done. I'm planning #7 as we speak. :-)

  • i think its rare to come across a person who would admit that they hate thier tats, i have 3 and love them all, i heard that if you get a tat on the chest, it might stretch as you get older, i do have there and its still nice. i do know that as the tats get older, it wears, so if anything, you might need touch ups.

  • Each of mine has a special meaning to me so I would never hate them. I feel bad when people say they regret theirs, it just means they didn't get something that was personal to them and it didn't mean anything.
