Kelly regrets tats

Kelly Osbourne plans to have her tattoos removed.

Kelly Osbourne plans to have her tattoos removed.

The reality TV star – who has more than 15 inkings on her body – feels some of the designs were a “mistake” and says she didn’t miss them when they had to be covered up for a recent movie role.

She said: “I’ve decided to get a few tattoos removed. Some still have special meaning, like the matching ones my brother Jack and I have of each other’s names, but I now feel like some were a mistake. They covered a few of them with make-up last week for a scene in my new film ‘Should’ve Been Romeo’ – and I can’t say I missed them!

“I want to get rid of the keyboard on my forearm – I can’t even play the piano! And I don’t like the heart and bones on my wrist either.”

Kelly has already consulted with medical experts and is looking forward to starting the removal process – though she admits she is dreading the procedures.

She added in her column for Closer magazine: “I met with my dermatologist and I’ll start the laser treatment as soon as I have time. It will take several months, and while I’m not looking forward to the pain, I’ve heard it hurts less than getting the tattoo. I hope so!”

The 25-year-old star has previously spoken about how her tattoos were a way of rebelling against her parents.

She said: “When I was younger I really do think that tattoos were my way of self-harming because I really knew it would upset my mum and dad. I was miserable and I just went and got all these tattoos and I don't know why.”
