Or you might have taken inspiration from online sites such as Instagram or Pinterest and found something that you thought looked cute.

And this is what one woman did, but five years later, she massively regrets it.

TikTok user ‘cecjinx’ got inked when she was 17 because she thought it was trendy, but now she hates it.

The woman uploaded the video with the caption ‘17 year old me thought it was a metaphor okay’.

她说: “This is your sign to not get a super trendy Pinterest tattoo that you put zero thought into.

“I know six people with this same tattoo.

“Don’t do it.”

In the video the woman shows off her regretted tattootwo little fingers intertwined, aka a ‘pinky promise’.

We think it looks cute, but can agree that it is quite a trendy tattoo that many people also have.

Someone commented “It’s not the tattoo it’s how it wasn’t done well” to which the TikToker replied “It’s so bad. It makes me sad every time I look at it.

“It’s just a really bad tattoo that I only wanted because I was 17.”

The video has clearly got many people talking as it has racked up a whopping 582.5k views.

然而, there were also many TikTokers that pointed out that if you want a tattoo, you should get it, regardless of if other people have it or not.

一位用户发表了评论: “Ya’ll worry about tattoos so much. If you want it, get it. Don’t worry about others or if others may have it”

另一个说: “Honestly i think if you love a design you should get it, but I also highly encourage making it your own in some way. make it unique to you!!”

三分之一说: “Even if its from Pinterest if you like it and it looks good it’s a good tattoo.”

同时, I spent my last £60 on a tattoo but it ended up crooked AND has an awkward double sexual meaning.

还, I wanted Abba lyrics tattooed on my tummy but got the words wrong… I’ll never get another inking again.

I asked for a simple heart tattoo on my arm… the artist messed it up so badly it looks like it was done with a Sharpie
