A woman has issued a warning to tattoo fans who are considering extensive body art when they’re still young. 

Sara, 36, from, Virginia, took to TikTok where she posted a video to discuss how she felt about her body art.

She has two full sleeves and most of her upper body inked, including patterns on her neck.  

‘Imagine if you will, you put a shirt on once when you were in your twenties, and now you have to wear that for the rest of your life,’ she explained. 

‘And that is what it feels like to get heavily tattooed before you turn into a fully developed adult human. 

Sara from, Virginia, US, says posted a video on the social media website to discuss how she felt about her body art

‘There’s a lot of reasons to regret my tattoos but today specifically I wanted to talk about not matching my aesthetic.

‘I think if you asked almost anybody that’s over 30 if they have a better idea of who they are in their thirties than than they did in their twenties, they are gonna be like “Oh my god, yes”.

‘I have all of these tattoos that don’t necessarily reflect who I am at 36.

‘They may have reflected a moment in time in my twenties, maybe a moment in time that I was like not doing so well mentally, and they are here forever.

‘Before anyone says anything, no I’m not getting all of my tattoos removed, like that’s not even feasible, don’t even suggest it. 

‘Generally I have a lot more femme, girly aesthetic than I did when I was younger.

‘I was a lot more dark and spooky and moody and now I have adult problems.

‘(I’m) back to bunch of stuff I like to do when I was a kid, like collecting antiques, and spending time outside and I wear a lot of white and ruffles.

The 36-year-old said: ‘Imagine if you will, you put a shirt on once when you were in your twenties , and now you have to wear that for the rest of your life’

‘My aesthetic just does not match. No shade to the artist, I still get a ton of compliments on them – I just wish they weren’t on my body.

‘But I wanted to come on here and put myself out there and say that I was told that I would regret my tattoos when I got older.

‘I am older and I do regret my tattoos and you might too.’

Sara captioned the video: ‘Oops I regret all my tattoos. 

‘I might do another video listing all the other reasons but so far none of them involve my tattoos aging (which is what dudes used to always tell me) they just don’t match who I am now and my girly/feminine aesthetic. 

Users took to the social media platform to express how they felt about tattoos and their experience with body art 

‘Will you regret your tattoos when you’re my age? Maybe!’

The video racked up 1.8million views and more more than 8,000 comments.

One user wrote: ‘It’s bc you are about aesthetic. If you were genuinely collecting quality art you liked rather than for a look/trend, you wouldn’t feel that way.’

A second person said: ‘I’m 29 and got heavily tattooed from 19-23, I def regret most of them for aesthetic reasons too. I wish I had gotten b&g instead of bright colors.’

A third commented: ‘It’s interesting but I actually regret the opposite which is not getting more ink done in my 20s.’

A fourth penned: ‘This! Mine are so aggressive and now I’m like a soft sweet adult. Doesn’t match my aesthetic.’
