Celebrity Tattoo Regrets

Yes body art is a huge industry and now so is laser removal - because terrible tattoos happen to the best of us, even celebrities.

Adam Levine who has more tattoos than you can count, didn't face the laser, but rather decided to disguise his Russian inmate-inspired tattoo which he called, "pretty stupid".  In a recent interview with Anderson Cooper, the Maroon 5 frontman explained his mistake: " I saw a guy with these really cool Russian tattoos, I can't get because I'm not tough - really cool prison tattoos - and I got some sort of horrible bastardized version of that."

But the musician isn't the only star to rethink his ink! N.E.R.D. rapper Pharrell told The Hook Up he wanted to get his skin cloned and then grafted onto his arms, ultimately undergoing painful laser treatment... and later posted photos on his blog. Similarly 50 Cent also went to extremes to rid himself of his "sleeves".

Meanwhile, Megan Fox cleaned her forearm of a Marilyn Monroe portrait she grew to dislike.

And topping the list of most regretted tattoos? Those pesky exes' names - Johnny Depp famously turned his "Winona Forever" tattoo into "Wino Forever." While Angelina Jolie erased Billy Bob Thornton's name and replaced it with the coordinates for the birthplaces of her children.
