A 22-year-old UK woman is warning others to think through their tattoos after realising the inspirational quote she got inscribed on her back has a rather sexual connotation.
Northamptonshire woman Rhianna Cooper got the quote "make it count" tattooed across her upper back when she was 18, inspired by the motivational pep talk always given by her dad.
But the business analyst told The Sun she was "mortified" upon realising the quote has a little more innuendo than she anticipated about a year later, after a comment from her then-partner.
"If I'm having sex and my boyfriend is behind me, the words 'make it count' are the first thing he sees," said Cooper.
"I only realised about a year later when my boyfriend made a comment. I thought 'oh my God, how did I not spot that at the time?'
She explained the reason she got the tattoo is her dad would always say to her: "You've only got one life, make it count".
"I thought my back was a good spot because I was still at school at the time and I didn't want anyone to see it," she said.
"But I realise the placement is far from ideal now."
Since getting that first tattoo, Cooper has gotten seven more - but has stayed away from words after learning her lesson.
"I do regret it, I later thought of lots of other things I could have got instead.
"When I first realised the sexual meaning, I was like 'oh my God, I'm going to have to get this covered up, this is awful'.
"But then I thought 'who really cares?' No-one's going to piece it together unless it's a long-term partner who I'm with'."
It's not the first time someone has gone viral for the tattoo they regretted later. Earlier this year a recently tatted woman named Phoebe shared the hilarious moment she realised her wave tattoo was inspired by the design inside her family's fridge.
