While there are people out there who have woken up from a night of drinking to find a new tattoo on their body, for many others, getting their skin permanently inked is a decision they usually give a lot of thought to.
People usually opt for artwork, quotes, and numbers that hold some sort of significance, or at least, appear aesthetically pleasing to them. After all, they're stuck with it for the rest of their lives, unless they choose to go through the very expensive and painful removal process.
This is why many people are often told to avoid getting the name or likeness of their partner tattooed on their body. Relationships don't always last, but tattoos are permanent and the last thing anyone would want is to have to stare at their ex's name or face on their skin.
But apparently, there's a brave (or desperate) man out there who is willing to go to great lengths to show his love for his estranged wife.
Jose L. Torres from Texas recently had a spat with his wife after his unfaithfulness came to light. With his marriage on the rocks, Torres struggled to regain his wife's trust, so in an attempt to win his wife back, he got a tattoo that detailed his cheating ways.
"I, Jose L. Torres am getting a tattoo voluntarily on January 2, 2019 so that I can earn my wife’s trust back for the pain and suffering I have caused in our marriage.
I am a:
– Liar– Cheater– Manipulator– Deciever [sic]– Whore/prostitute lover– Dishonest and disrespectul [sic]."
A photo of the tattoo was shared by the artist, Jorge Araguz of Artistic Impressions Tattoo Studio, on social media and it has since spread like wildfire.
“Nothing like some nice lettering to start the year," the tattoo artist wrote in the caption of his post.
On Reddit and Instagram, users had plenty to say about Torres' tattoo, and they weren't very nice things.
"Whoa, buddy... Most people just give up half of their stuff and leave," read one comment. Another user wrote, "Seeing that he also has his own name tattooed above the bellybutton means he's a sure keeper.
"He has plenty of room on his back to continue his failures," chimed in one user. "What an idiot."
People were also quick to point out that not only did the man go too far with his grand gesture, some of the words, like "deceiver" and "disrespectful" are misspelled.
Araguz later shared an update, revealing that he had no idea the tattoo contained a spelling mistake until after the photo went viral.
