Hayden Panettiere gets 'live without regrets' Italian ink removed after tattoo artist misspells word
Hayden Panettiere had the phrase 'live without regrets' tattooed on the side of her rib cage in Italian, but in a spectacular twist of irony, it seems she's had second thoughts about the ink.
The 24-year-old actress is in the process of getting the mantra removed four years after a tattoo artist misspelled a word in the script.
She showed off the partially erased etching as she stepped out in a bikini in Hollywood Beach, Florida on Sunday.

Misspelled: The actress, pictured two years ago with her tattoo before she began getting laser treatment
The top part of the words Vivere senza rimpianti - the last word was misspelled 'rimipianti' - had clearly undergone laser treatment.
The star showed off her svelte figure in a lime green, black and white bikini with a chevron striped pattern, making a splash in the ocean.
She even sipped tumblers of beer alongside a group of friends in warm waters and blew kisses at a friend's baby.
Enjoying the Florida sunshine, Hayden made the most of the long labor day weekend, swimming in the ocean, before taking a stroll along the sand.
Earlier this year, the ex-Heroes star discussed her tattoo, saying she didn't regret it.
'It’s Italian,' she told the May issue of Glamour magazine. 'When I was younger, I was upset, and my dad said he wanted to show me something.
'He slammed one door of the bathroom, and the closet door popped open - it was a trick with the air.
'He said, "Whenever one door closes, another one always opens."
'So my tattoo means Live without regrets. It’s not that you don’t regret things in life, but you at least try to learn from them. It’s misspelled too [accidentally, as rimipianti] - so I literally have to live by that advice!'

Wladimir has a house near where Hayden was recently seen.
