Its bad enough making a bad decision, and remembering it. . .having to look at a poor choice every time you look in the mirror can be down right torture.
Some people have to suffer ongoing tattoo regret because they don’t have the money to get their tattoo removed. Many of those that choose to cover it find they still vividly see the original tattoo when they look at it. Having to face a misguided decision on a daily basis can lead to frustration, poor self-esteem, and even long standing depression.
People who ultimately remove (or cover) their hated tattoos usually wait many years before doing so.
Those many years of tattoo regret (and sometimes calling yourself “stupid”) can take an emotional toll. The fact is EVERYONE does things they regret at one time or another, and beating yourself up over it is counter productive, . . . and a waste of time.
When someone brings attention to your mistakes it’s insensitive, and it is a sign of their own insecurities! They are actually trying to divert attention from their own mistakes or shortcomings, in other words by putting the spotlight on you, its off them!
Recognize these signs of insecurity in others and don’t take them as a reflection of you. You have regret like everyone else, and you will learn to deal with it in your own way.
