15 Celebs Who Were SO in Love That They Got Tattoos to Prove it
by Effie Orfanides
We’ve all heard the unofficial rule: Never get tattoos of someone’s name, especially a significant other. But that doesn’t stop people from getting them, even celebrities. These 15 celebs took part in the so-called “kiss of death” and tattooed their lover’s name—and sometimes face—on their body. I guess even celebrities do crazy things for love.
The Big Bang Theory actress had her wedding date tattooed on her back after marrying tennis pro Ryan Sweeting. Just weeks after the couple announced their split, Kaley used social media to let the world know that she was done with that ink. She visited a shop in Studio City to have the date covered … with a sizable insect (that appears to be a moth).
People magazine’s Sexiest Man of the Year is covered in tattoos, so it makes sense that he’d feature his wife, Victoria Beckham, in some way, right? Becks has the former Spice Girl sitting in a sexy pose inked on his left arm and her name tattooed on his right hand.
Like husband, like wife! The clothing designer is said to have quite a few tattoos dedicated to her man, but the one on her wrist is most visible. It’s David Beckham’s initials.
The actress decided to get Brian Austin Green’s name tattooed on her hip. The couple recently announced their split, but there is no word on whether or not Megan plans on covering up the ink.
Who could forget Nick Cannon’s huge back tattoo that read “Mariah”? Not long after his split from the superstar, Nick visited a tattoo shop to have additional work done to cover up MC’s name.
Live! co-host Kelly Ripa honored her husband with some ink of her own. Kelly inked Mark Consuelos’s last name on the inside of her wrist.
The model decided to get a tattoo of Wiz Khalifa’s face on the back of her arm after they started dating. The couple split last year, but Amber still has the tattoo.
The By The Sea director is known to have a couple of “tasteful” tattoos, but her most talked-about markings are the coordinates she has on her arm. She has each of her children’s birthplaces listed, and a seventh added to the group is said to be Pitt’s birthplace coordinates. Don’t forget—Jolie also got her ex-husband’s name, “Billy Bob,” tattooed on her arm. It has since been lasered away.
One of Hollywood’s hottest actors wouldn’t leave his body without a trace of his wife, would he? Pitt has a tattoo of a cross on his right arm. The letter A, for Angelina, is on one side and the first initials of his kids, MPZSVK (Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox) is on the other.
Khloe Kardashian has Lamar Odom’s initials on her hand. On an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe was asked if she was going to cover the “LO” marking. She said that she didn’t want to because Lamar was such a big part of her life.
Heavily tattooed Dean has a portrait of his wife, Tori Spelling, on his triceps. The ink shows the blonde with long hair striking a sultry pose while wearing just a bra. He’s also got a tribute to her on his right forearm.
The country star has his wife’s name tattooed on his arm. Despite continuous rumors of splitting, Tim and Faith Hill are still going strong.
The actress tattooed Tony Parker’s jersey number on the back of her neck after marrying him. She also had their wedding date tattooed on her wrist and his initials on an undisclosed, “intimate” part of her body. Since their split, media outlets have reported that she has had laser treatments to fade the tats.
Heidi had a sizable tattoo of her husband “Seal” on her arm. She had laser treatments to have it removed after the couple split.
The Backstreet Boy-turned-ballroom dancer (he was the runner-up on the last season of Dancing with the Stars) inked the name “Paris” on his wrist when he was dating Paris Hilton. He has since had that covered up with a new tattoo of a skull.
