9 Celebrities who regretted after getting love tattoos, but then made smart cover-ups!!
Tattoos are a way of showing affection towards something that you love, respect or want to keep as a memory. People have many ways to show affection apart from tattoos like giving flowers to their loved ones, chocolates and a heartfelt note along with the gifts.
But tattoos are something that shows that you are more committed to your loved ones, as they are a permanent reminder for the affection for their loved ones. Rings may be more expensive and blingy things that show you are committed to your loved one, but tattoos are permanent and are not easily removable.
That’s why these 9 celebrities probably regretted their tattoos after they went through a break up. But they even made changes and smart cover-ups.
1 Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco is well known for her role of Penny on the hit sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and is one of the hottest actresses on TV right now. Some time back she married professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting and got a tattoo of their marriage date on her back.
After 21 months of marriage, Cuoco and Sweeting decided to end the marriage and Cuoco was left with the marriage date tattoo on her back. But she decided to get the tattoo covered up and she decided to get creative with the covering up, by getting a butterfly over the date.
2 Nick Cannon
During their marriage, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey were not averse to public displays of affection. Nick even got a massive tattoo of her name on his upper back, declaring how much he loved her. But all that didn’t keep Mariah from dumping him after 6 years of marriage and 2 kids. Nick also got creative with concealing the Mariah tattoo and went with the religious theme. He covered the huge tattoo with a massive cross on his back.
3 Mariah Carey
Nick Cannon’s then wife Mariah Carey also followed suit and got inked during their six years of marriage. But unlike her ex-husband, Carey decided to go for something more subtle and small. She got a small butterfly tattoo at the lower back part of her body. It said Mrs. Cannon in orange and despite the reasons for their split; Carey was more intelligent in getting a small tattoo as compared to Cannon’s massive one.
4 Heidi Klum
Heidi Klum and her ex-husband singer Seal were one of the most talked about couple during their time together. Both were so much in love that eventually they got each other’s names inked on their bodies.
Klum got a designer tattoo on her right forearm that said Seal on the occasion of their fourth anniversary. The tattoo also had four stars which had her children’s initials in them. But when their marriage ended in 2012, Klum decided to remove the part of the tattoo that said Seal and left the stars with her children’s name intact.
Celebrity Nas went one step further and got a tattoo of her then wife on his right inner forearm. The tattoo was a complete portrait of his wife Kelis and that too, her topless version. But when they got separated, Nas decided to cover up the face of his ex with a tattoo of a lion’s head, but has left the rest of the topless body intact. Take that for symbolism.
6 Iggy Azalea
When people get in a relationship, they usually think that they have found ‘the one’ for themselves and in order to celebrate that, some couples get etched. But what they don’t know is that nothing lasts forever.
Something happened with singer Iggy Azalea, who got tattoos on her fingers in honor of her then boyfriend A$AP Rocky, another rapper. Iggy got ‘Live, Love, A$AP’ tattooed on her three fingers. But after the relationship ended, she covered the A$AP part with a huge cross. Later she got all the three tats removed via laser surgery.
7 Melanie Griffith
Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas had one of the most celebrated love stories in Hollywood. The actress and her husband are both known actors and they were married for 20 years and had a daughter together. Griffith rightly got the name of her now ex tattooed on her right arm.
But in 2015, the pair split and she decided to have treatment to remove Antonio’s name removed from the tattoo, something she had for most period of their 20 year old relationship.
8 Johnny Depp
Hottie Johnny Depp was madly in love with actress Winona Ryder during the early part of the 1990s. Depp who is known for his various tattoos over the years, got Winona’s name etched on the upper right arm, which said ‘Winona Forever’.
But when the couple split, Depp was quick to get the name of her once love, Winona removed from his arm and actually had just the last three letters of her name removed. This left him with a cool tat that said ‘Win Forever’.
9 Angelina Jolie
An actress who is very fond of getting inked is Angelina Jolie. You can see multiple tattoos on her body in her photos. Before getting married to Brad Pitt, she was the wife of actor Billy Bob Thorton and Jolie got his name inked along with some dragon tattoo on her left bicep.
But after their marriage ended in 3 years’ time, Jolie went on to cover the tattoo with the coordinates of all her children’s birth places. An innovative tattoo indeed by Jolie to make sure something great comes out of something painful.
