Adrienne Bailon is learning the painful lesson that you should think before you ink!
The former Cheetah Girl is in the process of having the tattoo of ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian's name removed from her behind. On a recent episode of The Real, Adrienne admitted it's "awful," saying she could smell "my ass flesh burning" with each laser session!
But at least Adrienne, wisely, has the proof of her poor decision in a place the whole world can't see. Lots of celebs—from Angelina Jolie to Eva Longoria to Johnny Depp—got their regrettable ink in places where the sun does shine.

Megan Fox changed her mind about tattoo of Marilyn Monroe's face she once had on her forearm, once she did a little more research on the idol. "I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult," she told Esquire. "It's like when you visualize something for your future. I didn't want to visualize something so negative."
And like Adrienne, Megan found the removal process very unpleasant. "I've only done one session on it, but it is incredibly, incredibly painful," she told Ellen DeGeneres. "Wherever the ink is, the laser hits it and it sort of pops up like little pieces of popcorn and explodes your skin."
"It's really awful," she added. "So kids, don't ever get tattoos!"
And adults, if you do get tattoos, make 100 percent sure you're not permanently marking yourself with a temporary love! If you already have, though, at least you're in good company.
