DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN I got some tattoos done a few years ago, I thought they looked cool.
Now I am embarrassed and want to hide them.

I am a guy of 26. I was 19 when I got the tattoos and all my mates were having them done.
Stupidly, I got one showing a girl’s name. That relationship ended a couple of years ago.
I got an apprenticeship at 21, went back to college and qualified as an electrical engineer.
I now hang out with completely different people, at work and outside, but feel so stupid about my tattoos.
DEIDRE SAYS: You are certainly not alone. Two out of five people with a tattoo regret getting it.
Tattoos can be removed, though it usually costs a lot more than having them done in the first place.
Meanwhile, you can often mask them pretty effectively with cosmetic camouflage.
