The official legal age for getting a tattoo is eighteen years old. If you have ever brought up the idea of getting a tattoo to your parents, you were probably met with something along the lines of, “You’re going to regret that tattoo when you’re older.” But the thing is… At the time, you probably disagreed, and that’s what led you to commit to the tattoo in the first place. See, we do not always make the most thought-out decisions or well-informed choices when we are in our teens or our twenties.
Everything in our brain comes together in our mid- to late-twenties, but up until then, we might act on ideas that aren’t the best ones long-term. One of the most commonly mistaken actions that we take as younger adults, yet regret as we get older, would be tattoos. Maybe you had a boyfriend you thought you would spend forever with, so you tattooed his name on your left wrist. Or maybe you started dating a girl that you wanted to spend the rest of your life with, and now that anniversary date is inked into your bicep but you’re no longer together.
These things happen because younger relationships are more prone to ending in breakups than marriages. You live and you learn, but it doesn’t mean you have to keep a tattoo you regret visible on your body for life. That’s where tattoo cover-ups come into the picture. If you have ink on your skin that you wish you never had done, don’t worry. Instead, take a look through these 70 tattoo cover-up ideas for men.
