20 Celebs Who Got a Tattoo For Their Significant Other… But Then They Broke Up

By  | 


There are tons of ways to show your significant other how you feel about them, but nothing says “I love you” quite like a permanent tattoo of their name. Of course, it seems like a good idea because you're sooo in love and you feel like you've found “the one.” But often times, things change. And before you know it, you guys are itching to part ways because that love has long fizzled out. But you know what's the worst part? The fact that you're now stuck with a physical reminder of your ex. On your body. Every single day. And unfortunately, there are tons of popular celebrities who understand the feeling all too well.

While some stars chose laser removal to get their tats erased completely, others resorted to altering their ink. For instance, Kylie Jenner used to sport a “t” on her ankle in honor of her ex-bae, Tyga. But you'll just have to keep reading to see how our girl dealt with the tattoo now that she and T are dunzo and Travis Scott is her new man. (Though, being real, she could've just left the “t” and said it now stood for Travis…w/e.)

The moral of the story, you may ask? Getting permanent ink that relates to your S.O. actually might not be the best idea, especially if you haven't been together long. And you know what? We're willing to bet that these celebs won't be making the same mistake again.

1. Angelina Jolie


She had her ex's name, “Billy Bob,” tattooed on her upper arm. But after they split up, she changed it to the geographical coordinates where she first met her children. She once said, “I'll never be stupid enough to have a man's name tattooed on me again.” Safe to say she learned her lesson…
