A tattoo is forever. That's why most people take a lot of time to think and decide exactly what a potential tattoo will look like-and what it'll look like in 20 years-before heading to the tattoo shop. Some celebrities have inked before they've thought, and have the regrettable tattoos to prove it. Here are seven tattoo mishaps you don't ever want to make.

Kylie Jenner lives an insane life. It's no wonder the 19-year-old reality star wanted to show the world with this hip tattoo.

Although it's accurate, many fans said it was the incorrect phonetic spelling of the word, which led to internet groupthink.

Justin Bieber's Face Tattoo

Our friend Justin Bieber makes the list again. Despite having one of the most recognizable faces in the world, the pop star decided it was a great idea to get a face tattoo of a cross. Buy plenty of concealer if you want to do any acting work, Justin.

Britney Spears' Incorrectly Translated Chinese Tattoo


Exotic tattoos in different languages are all the rage. Just be careful-and use an online translator-before getting one. In 2006, Britney Spears thought her Chinese tatt meant "mysterious" but it translated to "strange."
