Why Jessica Alba Regrets Two of Her Tattoos

Jessica Alba knows a thing or two about beauty trends and skincare. As the founder of The Honest Company, she has her finger on the pulse of the latest skin technologies and treatments – she certainly knows the importance of good skin care. She told NBC’s Today, “I would say my #1 beauty advice for my kids is just to be consistent as their skin will change with hormones.” At the same time, the entrepreneur isn’t afraid to try new techniques and fads. She revealed her teenage daughter taught her how to do a “puppy eyeliner” look, which she now likes to “experiment and play with.”

Nothing beats meaningful body art on glowing skin, either. In 2019, the mother of three honored her children in a special way. She took to Instagram to share a picture of the zodiac tattoos she got for each of them. She captioned the picture, “Honor Gemini Haven Leo Hayes Capricorn.” The constellation designs are placed on her inner right arm as a permanent reminder of her children’s birthdays. However, the LA’s Finest actress has a few other tattoos that she’s not too happy about, and she confirmed why she might regret some of her body arts.

Jessica Alba succumbed to a trend of the early 2000s

Jessica Alba is a style icon and beauty guru, but that doesn’t mean she never made decisions she’d later regret. Alba told Raffinerie29, “I have a few tattoos and I regret one of them… maybe two.” She said one of the tattoos she regrets is her cross tattoo. In an interview with James Corden, she revealed, “Yeah, I have a tramp stamp,” visibly nervous. Ben Schwartz, who also spoke to Corden that night, then asked her about it. Deciding to get by, she said, “You know what, I was going through a breakup.”

In 2016, she appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and revealed that she also has a tattoo on her wrist that she dubbed “My First Breakup.” She tabled: “He [her ex-boyfriend] was really against tattoos, and I felt like after I broke up with him … I found myself again.” Though she doesn’t mention a friend’s name in either of the interviews, Alba once told Cosmopolitan that Michael Weatherly was the first guy she met had a serious relationship with. “I was so young, 18, when I started dating him. I was a virgin,” she said of her ex-fiancé.

Alba’s previous relationship may have inspired a tattoo or two, but she regrets her decision. She has revealed that she was struggling to get rid of another highly visible tattoo.

Jessica Alba tried to get rid of this tattoo

Jessica Alba revealed that she made a decision as a teenager that had ramifications for decades. The Fantastic Four actor told Refinery29 that she has a flower tattoo on her neck that she regrets. She shared, “I got it when I was about 17 and I’m so irritated that I got it.” She continued, “I’ve lasered it many times and it doesn’t come out.” Unfortunately, Alba did tries to get rid of the tattoo but to no avail. It also seems that the body art on her neck is much more visible than the tattoo on her lower back due to her position. In a 2016 Allure interview, she said she would advise her younger self to be careful when it comes to tattoos. She said: “You will never be in the same place emotionally and mentally when you are 18 as you were when you were 20, 25 or 30.” However, looking back often comes too late.

The mother of three often shares her hard-earned wisdom with fans. One of the things she learned is that skinny beauty will only get you so far. She told Women’s Health, “Confidence is always the most beautiful thing.” Alba revealed that she tries to expose her children to a diverse group of people so they know everyone looks different, and that’s okay. In fact, confidence is more important than any trend, fad or body art statement.
