Celebrities: they’re just like us! They make impulsive visits to tattoo parlors, get inked for all the wrong reasons, and live to regret their choices.
But they also know they’re not doomed to keep their unwanted tattoos around forever. With the latest laser tattoo removal technology, these celebrities have been able to erase their bad decisions forever.
1. Johnny Depp.
When Johnny met Winona Ryder on the set of Edward Scissorhands, he fell in love so hard that he tattooed “Winona Forever” on his shoulder. As it turned out, their love affair did not last forever, so after they split, he had the last two letters removed from her name. Now his tattoo reads “Wino Forever.” Seems fitting given recent headlines, no?
2. Britney Spears
For a while, it seemed like Britney was the poster girl for bad decisions. But in recent years, she’s cleaned up her act. And as part of her image overhaul, she removed a Kabbalah-inspired tattoo from the back of her neck.
3. Hayden Panettiere.
Hayden’s tattoo, “Vivere senza rimipianti,” was supposed to mean “Live without regrets” in Italian. Unfortunately, that last word was misspelled – making her tattoo not only embarrassing, but also ironic. She got it removed a few years later. Looks like she had a couple of regrets, after all.
4. Angelina Jolie
Some celebs just never learn. After Angelina got a tattoo of her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton’s name removed from her left arm, she got a whole slew of tattoos dedicated to her next husband, Brad Pitt. But now that “Brangelina” is no more, rumor has it she’s already undergoing laser tattoo removal to rid her body of all signs of Brad.
5. Kat Von D
Even tattoo artists make regrettable choices when it comes to body art. Back when she was engaged to motorcycle enthusiast, Jesse James, Kat got his childhood portrait inked on her side. But only a few weeks after the piece was done, they split. A year later, she began the laser tattoo removal process, documenting the process on Instagram.
6. Mark Wahlberg
During his troubled teenage years, Mark got a whole bunch of unfortunate tattoos – including Sylvester the Cat and Tweety Bird. Once he found major success as a film star, he decided to have every last one of them zapped away. He even brought his children with him to his laser tattoo removal sessions, in the hopes it would deter them from making the same mistakes he did.
7. Megan Fox
Megan began collecting tattoos when she was just 19 years old – including a huge portrait of Marilyn Monroe emblazoned on her forearm. But a few years ago, she wiped all traces of Marilyn away, claiming it was attracting “negative energy” into her life.
8. Eva Longoria
Yet another celeb who unwisely inked reminders of her soon-to-be-ex all over her body. Eva underwent laser tattoo removal of three different designs related to Tony Parker: his initials, his jersey number, and their wedding date.
9. 50 Cent
Back when he was a hardcore rapper with a tough-guy image, 50’s tatted-up arms worked to his advantage. But as he shifted his professional focus toward acting, his ink became a pain to keep covering up with makeup. Instead, he opted for laser tattoo removal to help his career.
10. Victoria Beckham
Posh Spice made some not-so-posh decisions in her past, including a couple of wrist tattoos and a line of roman numerals down her spine. Reportedly fearing they were impacting her image as a burgeoning businesswoman, Victoria started having some of her tattoos removed with laser treatments.
