regretsI have a theory about regret. We are less likely to admit regret for actions that cannot be reversed. I think it might even be impossible. In the latest episode of House of Cards, Claire Underwood is asked (by a woman) if she regrets not having children. Claire answers with, “Do you regret having children?” Sssssnap. It’s damned difficult to find a parent that will admit they sometimes wish they had not had children. I suspect the same is true for tattoos. No matter how ugly or fucked up the tattoo, I’ve never heard anyone say “Wish I hadn’t done this.”
