Next time, maybe just use permanent marker and see how you like it … 

So before you get a tattoo, think about what it'll look like in 40 years. Or in a week, when you apply for a new job. Or just think about it for more than 30 seconds. 

There's been a few people wrapped up in this election cycle who didn't think critically about their tattoos, and this problem is probably just gonna get worse before it gets better. 

From the A.P.:

Jason Szkup of Leivittown, N.Y., shows his “Trump 2016" tattoo to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as Trump autographs copies of his new book, entitled “Crippled America,” at Trump Tower, in New York, Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2015.

Seth Bailey looks at a finished tattoo portrait of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on his arm at the Clay Dragon Tattoo shop on January 29, 2016 in Seabrook, New Hampshire. Shop owner Bob Holmes is giving free Donald Trump tattoos to clients at his shop and has already booked over 30 appointments for the next two weeks.

Roger Tomlinson, of Oklahoma City, center, sports a new tattoo of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., as he cheers for the candidate during a campaign rally at the Cox Convention Center Arena in Oklahoma City, Sunday, Feb. 28, 2016.

Anthony Borbell, 44, of Warren, Ohio shows his tattoo of Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump at Youngstown Airport on March 14, 2016 in Vienna, Ohio.

Justin Smith, a 33-year-old campaign volunteer for Hillary Clinton in Charleston S.C., tattooed Clinton’s portrait on his leg because Clinton has been his “hero for 23 years.”

And let's not forget this tool-pouch from last election:

Eric Hartsburg, an Indiana-based wrestler and one-time fan of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who tattooed the Romney campaign logo on his face, is seen at the office of a doctor who specializes in removing tattoos, in Beverly Hills, Calif., Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012. Eric will undergo about a dozen treatments to remove the stylized Romney “R” tattoo from his face.

So let's just stick to infinity symbols with words like "Faith" in them from here on out, eh?
