    Im only 22 and have 5, I have a star on my foot, the word love written on my wrist, a latin quote on my ribs & another latin quote on my shoulder blade as well as cherries on the back of my neck.

    I love all of my tattoos and plan to get a back piece after bubba arrives, I do however wish I researched my first one at 18 a little better as it wasnt the best work, a little dodgy looking. I have had it touched up now and it looks a bit better, I now have a fab tattoo artist. I still dont regret my wrist even if it is a little dodgy, I was 18 and so excited at that time in my life that I could never view it as a bad thing.

    I have a half sleeve on both arms & it took years to complete as I was very particular about each tattoo I got & every one of them has a significant meaning - however I do have a tattoo on my ankle which I hate/regret - I got it done when I was younger by a dodgy tattooist when I was out partying with my friends & slightly intoxicated - I've thought about getting it removed or tattooed over

    I don't regret them at all. I just want to be healthy when I'm older. The last thing ill regret are my tattoos. I have a quote on one arm, the word love on my wrist, half my back done and a little tattoo near my public area.
    Start somewhere where it isn't noticeable and see how you go. If you regret it, you have your answer : )

    Just make sure it's something you really want. Do your research. Look at different artists and don't look for anything that's cheap. Don't settle. Make sure you love their work.

    I wish very much that I listened to people who said that when I was 17!

    I don't regret getting A tattoo, just wish I had chosen better (image and artist).

    My brother is a tattoo artist, so is covered! He's had several people say to him "but you'll look silly at 80 with all those tattoos". His response "No-one looks good when they're 80!"...

    I do have one small tattoo, and I do regret it. I got a matching tattoo with my younger sister last year, but she has recently done something to hurt me very badly, so now I regret it as it makes me think of her...

    I'm a uni lecturer and I often look at students with very visible tattoos (sleeves, calves, necks etc) and I wonder if they have considered how it is going to impact on their future employment?

    There are still many professional contexts where visible tattoos are simply not acceptable. I suspect there will be more regrets for the visible ones than the ones which are easily covered.

    I don't regret my tattoo but I wish I got it done in brown ink as find black too dark and noticeable. It's a word on my wrist.
    Anyone know if there is a cream or something I can do to lighten it?
    I don't go out in the sun either as someone said that fades it

    I want a full sleeve so bad, but I really don't think that I will want it down the track so I'm holding off. I have other tattoos that are visible if I want them to be and have more planned with the same logic.

    If your tattoos are well thought out, designed and inked, you have less chance of regretting them. I started my tattoos at 18 and, luckily, I actually really thought about them before and paid top $$$ for a reputable artist.

    I did a Google search a little while ago for tattoo removal. One link was for a cream. The company is based in the states. I can't remember the name of it but maybe worth looking at? I haven't ordered any or looked into, might be a place to start for you though
