Tom Arnold

Roseanne Tattoo Was The

Worst Mistake of My Life

Tom Arnold
says tattooing Roseanne's face on his chest back in the day was the stupidest thing he's ever done -- this from a guy who once did a film called "Homo Erectus."

Arnold tells TMZ ... he got the tat back in 1994 in a last ditch effort to save his marriage ... but obviously his plan failed, big time. 

In fact, Tom says he had to suffer through a year-and-a-half of painful lasers to get rid of the ink knowing ... "I'd never have sex with anyone until I got that removed."

0910_tom_arnold_apBut Tom's affair with STUPID tattoos didn't end with Roseanne -- the actor says he got Chinese characters on his leg years ago, because he thought it meant "love of mankind." 

Turns out ... he was wrong ... at least according to Tom's "Cradle 2 the Grave" co-star Jet Li ... who translated the tat ... and said it means something totally different and way more hilarious.

Check out the video -- pretty funny stuff.

Tom screwed Roseanne 2 times during their marriage. Once when he married her and once when he divorced her.

You could complete it by putting a pigs body to it. Oh wait, a pig would be insulted.

"never have sex again"? doubt the tattoo would have anything to do with that you gross thing.

No, Tom, your BIGGEST mistake was marrying that whale. I love the way Roseanne refers to billionaires as "pedophiles", cheats and liars...awwww! What's wrong Rosie? Mad because you are only a multi millionaire and not a billionaire??? Don't you get it, Roseanne? YOU ARE THE 1%. PLEASE GO AWAY! Stop trying to be like the masses (pardon the pun). You are one of those Hollywood freaks that makes millions for no reason!!!!
