We’ve said that not all celebrity tattoos are silly and whimsical, and most of them represent profound messages, but Zac Efron’s iconic “Yolo” tattoo belongs to the first category. You probably remember there was a time during the early 2010’s when Yolo was the motto to live by; “you only live once,” was a call to action for all young and reckless people out there, in need of an excuse to be reckless.
In 2011, in an incredibly whimsical move – just as the motto dictates – actor Zac Efron inked “Yolo” on his hand. The motto, of course, has no special meaning for him, he just went along with the trend and took it a step too far. It took him a few years, but the actor finally realized his embarrassing mistake, and decided to have the tattoo removed. However, this blunder will always be tattooed in our minds.
