I started getting tatts young & am now covered in them but really regret it – 25 should be the minimum age for an inking | The Sun

A WOMAN who started getting tattoos when she was a teenager is now considering how to get them removed.

Lee explained that despite people telling her that she'd regret her inkings when she was older, she ignored them.

And now she has a full arm sleeve, a stomach piece and the "best part" of a leg sleeve – which she only started in May last year.

"You know when you're a teenager and you're like, 'This is not a phase mum, this is the real me'. It was a phase," she said in a video on her TikTok page.

"There really is something to be said about brain development and decision making.

"Because when I tell you something just switched in my little head about one month before my 25th birthday… I woke up one day and was like, 'What have I done?'"

She added that her tattoos make her "cringe", especially the majority of them don't have any meaning.

"So now I somehow need to find a way to remove extremely dark heavy coverage tattoos because I changed my mind," she sighed.

"I just don't feel at home in this skin any more. I feel like I need to shed it and become who I was supposed to be.

"I can't stand to look at them – I want them off my body. If I could scrub them off I would!"

Lee concluded her video by saying: "My advice to you is to wait until you're older than 25 to get tattoos or make any changed to yourbody."

And she added in the caption: "The minimum age for tattoos should be 25 i said what i said.

"I love the idea of tattoos but i don’t love most of mine tbh."

"I'm a tattoo artist and also wish the minimum age was 25 a lot of the time," one person commented on Lee's video.

"I wanted tattoos SO BAD at 15-18 y/o and now I’m 24 and so happy I never did it. I am cringing looking at my Inspo tattoos," another added.

As a third admitted: "Literally in the process of getting my back and stomach lasered deffo agree with the age being 25."

To which Lee replied: "I’ve done 2 sessions on the side of my thigh already.

"I cannot even fathom doing my stomach piece that one might need to stay hahahah."
