LOOK: This Man Gets a Tattoo to Apologize for Cheating on His Wife

The topic of cheating on partners has always been a controversial one. People are so divided over forgiveness and cutting ties — or something in-between. It’s obvious that this man understood that to be able to hope for forgiveness, he would need to make a grand gesture. That gesture? Permanently branding himself. His tattoo reads:

“I, Jose L. Torres am getting a tattoo voluntarily on January 2, 2019 so that I can earn my wife’s trust back for the pain and suffering I have caused in our marriage:

I am a:

– Liar

– Cheater

– Deciever

– Whore/prostitute lover

– Dishonest and disrespectul”

The caption clarifies that the tattoo artist wasn’t aware that the words “deciever” and “disrespectul” were misspelled until after some comments pointed it out. The tattoo artist also follows with: “I did try to ask the client if he was really sure about his decision. I asked him several times. But the only response I got from him was that he was sure because he messed up and he wanted to prove he would change. Even before I started tattooing, I asked him again.”

As expected, people online are conflicted over whether the act would be enough for his wife. Some of the users feel the act is tokenistic:

“How is that tat supposed to gain her trust back?!? Does imprinting it on your skin mean you’re not all of these things anymore all of a sudden?!?”

“What an idiot!!! Do you think his wife would enjoy SEX with him? This tattoo will be a CONSTANT REMINDER OF WHAT HE IS …LIAR, CHEATER….”

While others contend that it at least earns him a chance at forgiveness:

“He says he is genuinely sorry. Is that for anyone else to judge? Time will tell between him and his missus.”

“At least he owned up to his mistake. It’s up to his wife to see how much that counts for.”

Where do you stand on this issue? Do you think this man’s wife should take him back?
