With tattoos on the rise, so is tattoo regret. According to a 2018 survey by Dalia Research, 28% of respondents regret their tattoos and when it comes to tattoos associated with lifestyle groups, this number skyrockets. And while for most, a regrettable tattoo can be easily covered or removed, this isn't the case for a 35-year-old Australian bikie.


Meet Troy Fornaciari, a member of the Australian Finks bike club, who transformed his face with a number of large tattoos. Some of his face tattoos include the words "Tuff Luck" on his eyelids and "Not Guilty" on his left cheek. And while Fornaciari once willingly covered his face in ink, today he regrets those decisions.

After several run-ins with the law, including facing jail time after attacking a friend who crashed a $60,000 bike back in 2017, Fornaciari has decided to turn his life around. And for this former bikie, a fresh start begins with clean skin. According to his defense lawyer, Fornaciari finds his face tattoos embarrassing and wants to have them removed ASAP.
