A young woman made a decision that would change her life forever.
She saved every penny she earned so she could get a very large tattoo on her back. However, after seeing the final product, she was flooded with instant regret. The young woman had not expected that the tattoo would come out the way it did and is now dealing with major regret since she will have to live with the tattoo for the rest of her life.
The young woman is not someone who would generally get very dramatic, but she insists that her tears were not just drama, but genuine when she saw the tattoo for the first time. She even went on to make a video where she was crying and explaining how upset she was with the tattoo.
In the video, she complained that the tattoo was not what she had wanted, and it looked like something that belonged inside of a coloring book.
“I’m literally stuck with this f***ing thing for the rest of my life. It looks nothing like the picture. I don’t know what to do,” the young American woman cried in her video.
According to the woman, the tattoo artist did not want to do the art she requested. She had provided him with an image of what she wanted inked onto her back, and he told her that he would need to change the design, so it was his own art.
However, the young woman had been to the tattoo artist twice before and knew he “did good work,” so she trusted him with the design for her back tattoo. The tattoo artist did show her the stencil of what he was going to do on her back, but she wished she had looked at it more closely or in a different mirror.
“It’s my fault. I didn’t look hard enough… I didn’t look close enough. So yes, I did see the stencil, it was on my body, but I didn’t see any angle, it was only the angle he took of the picture,” the young American woman cried for the camera.
Although other people think the tattoo looks fine, the young woman disagrees and insists that the artwork is not what she wanted and that it is much larger than she had hoped for.
“It’s not what I wanted. When you have expectations for something, you’re going to be upset about it,” she said, choking back tears in her videos.
As a result of her emotional video, it quickly went viral, and many people tried to soothe the young woman’s worries and let her know that the tattoo would become something she would learn to love. They encouraged her to give it some time and allow it to grow on her.
“You just need to get used to it. Every single tattoo I’ve gotten, I feel like it looks bad, but then after some time, I love it! It’s beautiful,” one woman said.
Getting a tattoo is a major life decision, and it is crucial to think it through before making a choice. The young woman in the story learned the hard way that it is important to be sure of what you want and to do your research before getting inked.
