Tattoos are really nothing new, and body art has been around for centuries. From “I Love Mom” hearts to intricate, colorful sleeves, body art can be whatever you want it to be.

Just ask these tattoo artists (and a few regretful tattoo recipients) who shared their true accounts of "Are you sure?" stories.
