Tattoos are an easy way to express yourself, and they’re even better when they have a personal meaning, like Sarah Hyland’s new ribcage piece. They’re not a decision to be taken lightly, however: Just ask Chrissy Teigen! The model took to Twitter to share the one tattoo she almost got but is glad she didn’t.

During a Q&A with followers, fans were quick to answer her question about tattoos that could have been, with ideas ranging from squids to band ink to things that would have been too small and eventually bled together, like a bar code.

It was Teigen’s answer that surprised us most of all, however. The Lip Sync Battle host spilled the beans that had she not thought things through, she would now be inked with — get this — Kermit the Frog!

That’s right — Luna’s mommy almost branded herself with an image of Blake Lively’s Lovecover shoot co-star. And that’s not all: The funny gal admitted Eve’s paw print tat also crossed her mind.

As it turns out, Teigen, 31, wasn’t the only one that was relieved: Kermit himself weighed in on the discussion with some possible low-key shade, saying, “Whew! Glad to hear it. Now I don’t feel so bad about not getting that @chrissyteigen tattoo.” Burn!

No hard feelings here, however: In fact, the cookbook author admits his response only made her love him more.

Maybe that tat wasn’t such a bad idea after all?

What do you think of Chrissy Teigen’s tattoo idea? Are there any tattoos you’re glad you didn’t get? Tell us @BritandCo!
