A tattoo is forever, unless you’re a celebrity. Stars have been getting tattoos of their loved ones since tattoos and celebrities came into existence. Some of these couples lasted together, their mark of love growing brighter by the year, while some broke up and their tattoos faded away with their relationships. There are many ways to cover up a failed love tattoo. Celebs like Suzanne Khan and Johnny Depp paint over them, while others like Amy Jackson and Angelina Jolie have them removed. Some celebs like Deepika Padukone still choose to keep their love marks as a reminder of their past. Take a look at more celebs who got tattoos for their lovers, only to regret them later:
Amy Jackson and Prateik Babbar
The couple got extremely cheesy matching tattoos when they were in a relationship. After their break up, Amy had her tattoo removed, a right decision considering she had a successful acting career ahead. Prateik, on the other hand, still has the tattoo.
Angelina Jolie created quite the stir when she showed off her Billy Bob tattoo for the first time. After her divorce with Thornton, she had the tattoo removed and replaced with the co-ordinates of the birthplace of her kids.
Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards
This on-and-off couple got tattoos of each other’s names during their relationship. When they were done for good, Denise had an angel tattoo cover Charlie’s name, while Charlie had his tattoo removed and replaced with the word ‘Winning’.
Deepika confirmed her relationship with Bachna Ae Haseeno co-actor Ranbir Kapoor when she sported a tattoo of his initials. Unfortunately, their relationship came to an end, but Deepika still has the tattoo.
The Desperate Housewives actress had the jersey number of her then husband Tony Parker tattooed on her neck. They had a bitter breakup and the tattoo disappeared like the presence of Parker in Eva’s life.
Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne Khan
The couple got matching tattoos of a star below their right wrists. Hrithik even has Suzanne’s name tattooed on his wrist, a mark that remains till date. Suzanne, on the other hand, changed her star tattoo, and included a quote beneath it.
Depp professed is love through tattoos not once, but twice. He had ‘Winona Forever’ on his right arm, during his relationship with Winona Ryder. After their break up, he changed it to ‘Wino Forever’. As for the ‘SLIM’ tattoo he got for Amber Heard, it now reads ‘SCUM’.
The Big Bang Theory actress married Ryan Sweeting after a whirlwind romance, and even had their wedding date tattooed in Roman numerals on her neck. But her marriage did not last very long, and the date was soon replaced by a moth.
No one thought Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez would not last forever. Neither did Marc apparently, when he had his wife’s name tattooed on his right wrist. But post-divorce images show that ‘Jennifer’ has been replaced with an intricate design.
During their marriage, Griffith got a tattoo of Banderas‘ first name inside a heart on her right arm. Following their separation in 2014 and subsequent divorce in 2015, she had the name removed, but the heart still remains.
