Dumb-Ass Lists: 10 'Ragrettable' Tattoos

Here's some advice: If you're going to get a tattoo, you'd better, A) really love the design, and B) bring along a proofreader.

Tattoos are big business. In 2014, the industry pulled in a massive $3 billion in revenue. And with tattoo parlors popping up in every city and town across America, it looks like the trend isn't going away anytime soon. Forty percent of American households report having at least one person with a tattoo.

But what if you have "tattoo regret?" More than 45,000 people underwent medical procedures to get rid of those ill-thought-out tattoos?

According to cosmetic surgery website DocShop, the cost of laser tattoo removal ranges from $200 to $500 per treatment session with some tattoos requiring as many as 15 treatments to erase.

Looking for a safe investment? According to a report on Credit Donkey, in 2015, tattoo removal was a $75 million industry. That number is expected to grow to $83 million by 2018.
