6 Celebrities Who Got a Tattoo in Honor of Their Ex and Then Covered it Up
Getting a tattoo removed is a long, expensive and painful process. And while some celebrities decide to suffer through the experience to get rid of tats in honor of an ex, others choose to rectify their body-art mistakes in another fashion — by getting even more ink.
Some tattoo artists are so incredibly talented that they can take virtually any piece of body art that a person regrets and turn it into something beautiful and totally unique. Got your ex’s name inked on your ankle (*cough* Denise Richards *cough*)? No problem — it can be turned into an adorable fairy. HATE the fact that you got your wedding date tattooed on your back (we’re looking at you, Kaley Cuoco)? Easy — a giant moth will cover it up. Here are the stars who got inked for love, but then altered the art after splitting:
The entire Kardashian family was annoyed when Rob and his then-girlfriend Adrienne Bailon got each other's names tattooed on their bodies during their relationship, saying that it wasn't a good idea to get ink of a S.O.'s name. Well, the K-Klan was obviously right, because after Rob and the Cheetah Girl broke up, they were left in an awkward position.
While Adrienne chose to get body art removed with a laser, the 29-year-old decided to get his covered "with a life-sized Barbie doll of Rita [Ora]" that sister Kim Kardashian says "has now turned into a Cabbage Patch."
