We have all fallen victim to our own bright ideas at some point or another. If you haven’t then it may be a sign that you have a few more brain cells than the rest of the world’s population.

One person who knows only too well how bad a bright idea can be is Pasuda Reaw. The 21-year-old student from Thailand learned the hard way when she attempted to have a tattoo removed from her chest.

For Reaw, this was a fresh start, one that could potentially improve her chances of getting a job upon leaving university. Little did she know that it would be one of the biggest regrets of her life.

We bet these people also regret their life-altering tattoos…

Opting for a chemical method, a cheaper alternative to the popular laser treatment that most people choose when removing a tattoo, Reaw was hopeful that she’d be able to erase the rose garland that adorned her chest.

But as the chemicals were inserted into her skin with a tattoo gun, Reaw began to regret her decision.
