Kanye West is currently getting cancelled left, right and centre - and a lot of fans are wishing they could go back in time and cancel their tattoo appointments.
For the best part of the past two decades, the rapper has been one of the biggest artists in the world, amassing a huge international fan base.
But the star is currently plummeting down to Earth rapidly, after repeatedly sharing anti-semitic, unsubstantiated and offensive comments.
Now, some of his most hardcore fans are regretting enshrining their admiration on their skin.
Watch people share their unwanted tattoos here:
One such fan is musician Ashley Smith, from Cardiff, Wales.
The 20-year-old got the phrase 'Which / One', from artwork for Ye's 2016 album The Life of Pablo, inked on his wrist in June; however, he recently shared a TikTok, in which he said he needed 'f***ing laser removal', and he has since decided to have it blacked out.
Speaking to the New York Post, he said: "When I actually saw that he was making these comments about Jewish people, it was just gut-wrenching — this guy was supposed to be like one of my heroes, someone that I aspire to be like in making music and recording music."
He added: "I actually booked a tattoo consultation about covering it up. I couldn't care less about the design, I just want it off my body."
Ashley may find some comfort in the fact he is most definitely not alone.
One TikToker flaunted an arm tattoo inspired by the 2008 808s & Heartbreak album and said: "You know, I gotta say, really starting to regret this tattoo [from] when I was 18."
While another former fan with several West tattoos said on the platform: "That aged so poorly. I do not affiliate with his current mindset or anything he is saying. He is outwardly racist and a disgusting man. He is anti-semitic.
"He's letting down so many people. So many people that looked up to him. He's letting down everyone that ever truly supported him back in the day.
"It's absolutely disgusting and appalling and I'm so embarrassed to have these tattoos now."
West has been widely condemned after sharing anti-semitic comments on social media, and he has faced a whole host of ramifications, including being dropped by Adidas, talent agency CAA and the Balenciaga fashion house.
In a tweet sent on 8 October, Ye said he would soon go 'death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE' - an apparent reference to the US military readiness condition scale known as Defcon.
He added: "You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda."
West has also suggested slavery was a choice and called the Covid-19 vaccine the 'mark of the beast'.
