Don’t Live with Regrets

One in five adults in the US has a tattoo, but nearly one in five regrets getting their ink (out of 2,016 polled).* Also, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), 45,224 people had their tattoos removed in 2013, and that number is climbing. If you love your ink, that’s great! But if you know somebody that wants to start fresh, tell us your story and enter to win by commenting below.
