Getting a permanent tattoo is an important decision that needs to be made with a clear head and the right vision. Unfortunately, sometimes people suddenly decide to have one but their emotions are not what they should follow when making such a decision! In fact, in many cases people regret making some of their tattoos, especially when they represent something that is no longer a part of their lives! Tats related to ex-partners take the number one spot on that list!
1. This person doesn’t let past relationships stop him
It seems that this person dreams of having the name of his partner tattooed on his arm, but thing went out of control when the girlfriends became one too many! As you can see, the list is not a short one at all!
2. This is a witty way to cover a name

First of all, we need to say that we are totally impressed with the quality of both tattoos, and the person who did the left one is an absolute professional, no doubt about that! The idea for the cover up is nice, too!

Some old tattoos are much easier to cover up than others, and this is probably the easiest one to modify! The end result is simply stunning and there is no sign of the old name, which is nice to see.

It appears that Batman is a universal solution when it comes to ideas about covering old tattoos. This one is equally impressive to the previous Batman-themed one, and the old name was completely covered!
15. Here is one subtle but gorgeous tat
Finger tattoos were a thing back in the day and people’s choice was mostly their significant other’s name, but when a relationship is over, they simply need to remove it, and this is the only possible way!
