The 38-year-old actress opened up about the tattoos she wishes she could go back in time and undo

Actress and business woman, Jessica Alba began her television and movie appearances at age 13. The Golden-Globe nominee loves many of her tattoos, including the three pieces of ink for her children, of their zodiac signs' constellations, tattooed across her left arm. 

"I do have a few tattoos, and I regret one of them... maybe two," Alba says, according to PEOPLE. One of which includes the infamous "tramp stamp," where she sports a bow on her lower back. Alba also notes the flowers she has behind her neck, which she regrets the most, being the most visible of the two. "I got it when I was, like, 17 and I’m so irritated that I got it," she says. "I got it lasered many times and it’s not coming out."

According to Refinery29, Alba adds, "I really wanted to think about what would be meaningful over time, because when you get something when you’re 17 and now you’re 38, you’re like, hmm, don’t know if that’s too meaningful. But for that one, the kids are forever."

“It’s just a good life lesson for my kids,” she added.
