Nothing says love like tattooing someone's name on yourself, but what happens when the relationship goes south? It turns out one celebrity is dealing with that dilemma. According to E!, Iggy Azalea is having her A$AP Rocky tattoo removed long after their 2012 breakup. Better late than never, right?
When the duo dated several years ago, Azalea had "Live Love A$AP" tattooed on the side of three fingers on her left hand. Following their breakup, she had the "A$AP" finger crossed out, but it looks like she's getting the rest of the tattoo removed for real now that she's engaged to LA Lakers player Nick Young. That's kind of a nice engagement present.
According to an E! Online article, Azalea was spotted leaving a cosmetic center in LA today with those three fingers bandaged. Last December, she told Billboard she was in the process of having the tattoo removed, but it looks like things have sped up now that she's wearing a ring on the hand that held the tattoo. Makes sense! Nothing would be worse than slipping a ring on your fiancée's finger and seeing another person's name right next to it. Yeesh.
Of course, Azalea isn't the only celeb who has some tattoo regret. Here are five other celebrities who have had their ink (famously) removed.
1. Khloe Kardashian
Khloe recently had her lower back tattoo removed. The tat was a tribute to her dad she got when she was 16, but as Khloe said, it was "not so cute anymore." Kinda have to agree, Khlo. Though this tattoo didn't have any sort of romantic backstory behind it, Khloe also has a tattoo dedicated to ex-husband Lamar Odom on her hand. As recently as April, she still had the tat on her hand, and even showed it off in an Instagram post.
2. Johnny Depp
No list about celebrity tattoo removal would be complete without Johnny Depp's famous story. He had ex-flame Winona Rider's name tattooed on his arm in the form of a tat that said "Winona Forever." Post-break-up, he changed the tattoo to read "Wino Forever." Me too, Johnny. Me too.
3. Demi Lovato
Lovato's tattoo removal story doesn't have anything to do with love, but it's kind of related. She had a lipstick mark tattooed on her wrist, which she later regretted, mostly because it looked a little NSFW. "#RIPvaginatattoo," she Instagrammed when she had the wrist tat removed. She had taken flack for the fact that the tattoo didn't quite look like the kiss mark she was going for.
4. Angelina Jolie
The actress was married to actor Billy Bob Thornton way back in the day, and she had his name tattooed on her arm (and wore a vial of his blood around her neck). Following their divorce, Jolie had her tattoo removed. She then covered the spot with a list of coordinates for the spots on the globe everyone in her family was born. Awwwww. (You can see the tat above.)
5. Denise Richards
Richards had a famously rocky divorce from ex-husband Charlie Sheen, but she managed to make the most of the tattoo on her ankle that said "Charlie." (He also had one that said her name). Both celebs got theirs removed, but Denise turned hers into a fairy that still sits on her ankle.
