There are many ways to tell your perfect mate that you love them. One popular way is to get a tattoo that permanently bonds the two of you together.
However, when things go awry, all you end up with is a reminder of someone who you really want to forget.
After 18 years of marriage, Melanie Griffith probably thought her tattoo of husband Antonio Banderas' name was a good investment, however the actress has recently filed for divorce, and many are questioning if she will cover it up, or remove it completely.
Griffith is not the only one who have had to make that decision. Many celebrities have fallen victim to getting their lovers' name or a special symbol tattooed to their bodies, then splitting and trying to find a new use for the tattoo.
Many celebrities have chosen to cover it up, like Denise Richards' tattoo of ex husband Charlie Sheen's name; some decided to alter its meaning, like Johnny Depp's decision to change Winona Ryder's name to his bottle of choice; and others decided to just have it removed completely.
Take it from these celebrities, tattoos are not the way to express your love, because when things go wrong, the money spent on removing your mistakes will hurt more than the heartbreak.
Here is a top 10 list of celebrity ex partner tattoos.
