Why You Should Never, EVER Get a Tattoo!

Tattoos are definitely not something you would consider real beauty. They used to be considered something trashy that only outcasts would get, or rebels from culture, like sailors and prisoners.
Today it seems like almost every celebrity has at least one tattoo. Some have many. Often they have the overused ‘star’ somewhere on their body, or a poem of some sort or a Chinese symbol.
In my opinion, tattoos look trashy. I wonder how a beautiful celebrity could alter their naturally beautiful body that God blessed them with. Most often, people regret their tattoos later on in life. Megan Fox certainly looks as if she did. You can see that she’s getting the tattoo of Marilyn Monroe removed from her forearm (if you check out her modeling shots, she often creatively covers the tattoo with something).
If celebrities don’t get their tattoos removed, the tattoos fade so they look twice as bad and must get redone.
Classic women like Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe would never have dreamed of getting a tattoo, and I find it a bit odd that Megan Fox would get one of Marilyn Monroe. If you look closely, you see that the tattoo is a bit cheesy. No wonder she’s trying to remove it (a long and painful process!).
Learn from their mistakes. Please don’t alter your body to get a tattoo that will last forever, when most people change their minds or feel differently about it once they mature.
Just Google “old people with tattoos,” and that might sway you from ever getting one. Here are a few pictures of celebrities with various tattoos, the first series is the infamous star tattoo they all get:
Avril Lavigne also has this disgusting tattoo on her ribs! Who puts a cuss word permanently on their body? It’s so trashy!
And now a few celebrities are getting the word “SHH” tattoo’d on their finger because apparently they think it’s cute:
And the most heartbreaking of them all is Angelina Jolie’s tattoos: I wish she didn’t destroy her beautiful body with them!
What do you think of tattoos? Are you going to get one? Learn from these celebs’ mistakes, and don’t! In the long run, you’ll be grateful that you kept your body tattoo-free.
