Tattoos have become so mainstream that trends have started to emerge with the same designs popping up over and over again on people’s bodies and later relayed on instagram. Inspirational quotes, infinity symbols, stars on elbows and even dolphins: tattoo artists have seen them all many times over. Celebrities haven’t been spared by this ink madness and because they’re also just like us, many of them end up regretting and having to remove them.

  1. Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne is one of the most tattooed celeb in business, with ink designs ranging from a colored piano on the left forearm to a heart-shaped padlock on the right one. In 2013, she started a painful laser tattoo removal process to get rid of 15 of the inked designs on her body. She claimed most of them still have special meaning but they were eventually all a mistake.

  1. 50 cent

Rapper-turned-actor 50 cent has an impressive tattoo collection, especially on the back and arms. He has also recently undergone laser treatment in order to remove most of them in an effort to be taken more seriously as an actor. “It cuts down on the amount of time I have to spend in makeup covering them up,” 50 cent explained.

  1. Angelina Jolie

She famously got the name of her ex husband Billy Bob Thorntons removed from her arm, as well as a chinese dragon drawing, when she started dating Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt after filming Mr and Mrs Smith. She revealed she will never make the mistake of tattooing a lover’s name on her body ever again: a rather good advice that many regretful celebs should should have followed!

  1. Victoria Beckham

Pop singer, WAG and now successful fashion designer, Victoria Beckham has had many lives, reflected in her numerous tattoos collected over the years. Like many other celebs now in their 40’s, she has recently undergone laser treatment in order to have those marks removed, including the iconic initials on her wrists.

  1. Heidi Klum

Model Heidi Klum had the name of ex-husband Seal inked on her right forearm back in 2008 to celebrate their four-year anniversary. They divorced a few years later in 2012 and she since has started a laser removal treatment to erase it, leaving out three stars that were part of the initial design.

  1. Mark Wahlberg

Actor Mark Wahlberg famously got rid in 2012 of his Bob Marley shoulder tattoo, acquired during his Marky Mark persona and short-lived musical phase. He claimed he didn’t want to set a bad example to his children.
