Influencer Mike Jambs from Colombia was clearly ecstatic about Argentina's World Cup win, and much of his joy was for Argentina's star athlete Lionel Messi.

After Argentina defeated France 4-2 in penalty kicks in the finals, Jambs opted to get Messi's name tattooed in large letters across his forehead.

Initially, the influencer was vibing with his tattoo choice, telling his Insta followers, "I'm not harming anyone, I'm not doing anything illegal," by tattooing the soccer legend's name on his face.

However, it seems he's had a change of heart in a few week's time. According to a recently posted video on his IG, Jambs admitted he may not have thought the large and highly noticeable piece of ink through:"I regret having done the tattoo because instead of bringing me positive things, it's led to lots of negative things, both personally and for my family."

"I didn't think I'd be saying this so soon and I felt very proud of what I'd done in the first few days, but I now wish I hadn't done it," he continued.

If that's not a lesson in putting some thought into a tattoo before having it permanently inked onto your body, we're not sure what is!
