Tattoos, they can be so cool, so badass, and sometimes, such a bloody pain. Body art should rightly be considered and appreciated as a form of art just like any other, but ask any tattoo artist one piece of advice they'd give to prospective clients, and they'll have this to say - No lovers' names! Tattoos you regret can be lasered off, but that process is painful and expensive, so a lot of people just tattoo over their previous embarrassments, sometimes to interesting results.
