Dave Bautista would like to turn the clock back and stop himself getting his first tattoo on his backside.

The 52-year-old former wrestler has spoken about his regret at getting a "cement-looking heart" accompanied by the words "heart of stone" on his derriere in the 1980s.

Appearing as a guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the ex-WWE star spoke about his awful inking. Asked by the host if he had any regrets, Dave said: "Yeah.

"My first tattoo.

"It was when I was really young and I didn't want anybody to see it — especially didn't want my dad to see it, I didn't want to get in trouble for getting a tattoo, I was pretty young — it was on my a***."

"I got it from this old redneck in Arlington, Virginia.

"I told him where I wanted it.

"He shaved my b*** and then he's sitting in a little rolling chair and he rolls up to my face and he goes, 'Man, are you sure you want this on you a***?'

"I said, 'Yeah.'

"So, he put it there.

"A week or two after that, I regretted it.

"I lived with it for years and I got ragged on so much throughout wrestling.

"In the shower, it was like, 'What's that on your a***?'"

And having finally decided to cover up the said tattoo 14 years ago, he still gets grief over it.

He added: "I finally got it covered up I think around 2007... I'm still living it down, man."

Dave can be seen on Apple TV+'s See and in Dune, now showing in cinemas.  Watch his interview here:
