Kevin Clifton of Strictly Come Dancing fame announced today that he regrets his latest tattoo every day! Last month we delved deeper into tattoo trends and indeed regrets with our friends over at Datapad.co.
Strictly Come Dancing star Kevin Clifton has admitted regret at having “I love Glasgow” tattooed on his foot.
The 37-year-old professional dancer had the inking done live on ITV’s This Morning last year, as part of a promise he had made comedian Susan Calman when they were partnered on the BBC dance show.
Clifton was asked on Good Morning Britain if he regrets the tattoo, to which he replied: “Every day, yes. But it’s there now, it’s done!”
According to the Data Pad UK consumer panel, you have probably fallen out of love with your first tattoo. They asked 2000 men and women about tattoos, regrets, location, perception, and stereotypes of the growing number of inked people in 2019.
In the survey 37% of people admitted to having a tattoo, they typically had just the one (32%) or a whopping 5 or more (29%). Of those in the middle 18% had 2 tattoos, 12% had 3, and 9% had 4 tats on their body.
Tattoo Regrets You've had a few
Of those surveyed 1 in 5 had regrets about their tattoo choices with 12% regretting having a tattoo in the first place. Having the name of an ex-partner etched on your skin was one of the biggest regrets along with colour, the design, tattoo location, visibility, or quality. People also felt that tattoos became less appealing as they got older.
