If you wanted a tattoo for years and then you finally got a beautiful one, did you regret it later?

Posting for a friend. He has wanted to get a specific tattoo for about 15 years (he's mid-30s). In the past he has suppressed that desire (for a variety of reasons that no longer seem as relevant), but recently he can't stop thinking about it. He has done research and contacted reputable shops who do beautiful work, but can't decide whether to pull the plug; he's worried he'll regret it later. So he's looking for anecdata and related wisdom - if you wanted a tattoo for years and you finally got one, did you regret it later?
