There have been many clues that pointed to Rihanna and Drake finally becoming an official couple. But nothing says it’s the real deal like a tattoo. Rumor has it that Rihanna’s latest tattoo of a shark is dedicated to Drake as their first date was at an aquarium where the Canadian rapper won Riri a stuffed shark.
While the tattoo looks cool, not all were taken with it and thought it was an overall bad idea to get inked for your bae. Who’s to say it’ll last? A wide list of celebrities have gotten a tattoo for their significant other only to break up. A permanent reminder on your body of your ex has got to be harsh. Here’s some of the worst tattoos celebrities got for their love that didn’t last.
And be sure to cast your vote to see if the majority of voters agree with you!
Justin Bieber vs. Amber Rose
Justin Bieber and current girlfriends must go through an awkward conversation with ex Selena Gomez tattooed on his arm. While it can pass off as simply an angel he finds symbolic, everyone knows the true meaning behind it. Amber Rose, however, took tattooing an ex to a whole other level. She had her former husband Wiz Khalifa’s entire face tattooed on her arm which will definitely have a painful removal process!
Rob Kardashian vs. Christina Aguilera
Oh young love. We once thought Rob Kardashian and Adrienne Bailon were end game. Especially since Rob had her name tattooed on his ribs and Adrienne got his name on her butt. Their messy break up turned an attempted romantic gesture into an instant regret. Christina Aguilera went for a more subtle approach by inking her former husband’s initials in Hebrew on her arm. But even subtle tattoos can lead to disaster!
Heidi Klum vs. Nick Cannon
Many couldn’t believe that the after ten years and raising four children Heidi Klum and Seal – the epitome of relationship goals – were calling it quits. Which meant that next to go would be Heidi’s unique tattoo with Seal’s name on her forearm. Tragic to see an actually good tattoo of an ex be lasered away. But no one was surprised to hear that Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey ended. And props to Nick for changing a large back tattoo of Mariah’s name into an art piece that no longer reminds him of his ex-wife.
Angelina Jolie vs. Iggy Azalea
Angelina Jolie probably hopes no one remembers her Billy Bob Thorton faze as it wasn’t her finest hours. It consisted of a lot of drab outfits and on camera PDA no one wanted to see. The large tattoo dedicated to him was obviously a bad idea as she’s tried to cover up his name in the last few years. Iggy took another take on erasing the remaining memories of an ex. Her time with ASAP Rocky led to tattoos on her fingers that read “Live. Love. ASAP.” Since their break up? She tattooed over ASAP with an “X”. Guessing that breakup wasn’t a good one.
Zayn Malik vs. Katy Perry
Zayn Malik’s engagement with Perrie Edwards and Katy Perry’s marriage with Russell Brand were both doomed to fail. Yet they decided to mark their bodies of their temporary loves. Zayn has an animated version of Perrie on his arm while Katy went for a matching tattoo in Sanskrit that translates to “Go with the flow.” Guess that advice didn’t pay off for Katy!
Would You Get a Tattoo of Your Bae?
Seems like celebrities will never stop getting inked for their loves even with the low success rate of relationships in Hollywood. It’s always sad to see a tattoo last longer than the relationship it’s dedicated to!
