Hayden Panettiere is getting her ''live without regrets'' tattoo removed.

The former 'Heroes' actress showed off her bikini body on a Miami beach and it seems she is ironically getting rid of the ink across her rib cage.

According to RadarOnline.com, the star was photographed showing signs of laser treatment to get the design - which read ''vivere senza rimipianti'', Italian for ''live without regrets'' - removed.

Hayden previously joked about the tattoo - the third word of which was misspelled and should have said ''rimpianti'' - claiming she had to live by the motto despite the spelling error.

She had said: ''It's not that you don't regret things in life, but you at least try to learn from them. It's misspelled, too - so I literally have to live by that advice!''

The star - who is in engaged to Wladimir Klitschko - looked confident as she walked along the Hollywood beach, and in the past she has revealed she likes a similar quality in men.

She previously admitted: ''It does crack me up sometimes when you see these huge, burly, muscular, 'I spend all my time in the gym' kind of dudes and they've got these little Chihuahuas.

''At the end of the day, it's the confidence in which you walk the little dog that is sexy. Walk it with pride.''
