Actress Kaley Cuoco wed (now ex-)husband Ryan Sweeting after a whirlwind six-month-long courtship — and like many romantics, Kaley wanted to pay tribute to her wedding day, so she commemorated their nuptials by getting the date inked on her back in Roman numerals. Sadly, not all love stories end well. The couple filed for divorce in September of this year after just 21 months of marriage. But what of that tattoo? Kaley decided to go ahead an get the ink covered up — and she did it with plenty of good humor.
The Big Bang Theory actress posted these images of herself getting her old tattoo covered up. She wrote in the caption, “Thank you @nero_sct @studiocitytattoo for helping me right my wrongs. Note to self — do not mark your body with any future wedding dates #under30mistakes #donttakeyourselftooseriouslykids” Thanks, Kaley — we’ll definitely keep that in mind next time we think about going under the needle.
Kaley decided to go with a moth for her coverup tattoo choice… because she’s metamorphosed? She posted this picture of her gorgeous new tat along with this tongue-in-cheek caption: “@nero_sct the deep, meaningful, larger than life meaning behind this beautiful piece of ink, is… it covered the last one.” LOLOL. Good one, Kaley.
Kaley Cuoco isn’t the first celeb to fall in love, get a tattoo and break up. Rob Kardashian + big sis Khloé both have (had?) tattoos with the names of their exes (that’d be Adrienne Bailon and Lamar Odom respectively). Katy Perry and ex-husband Russell Brand have matching Sanskrit tattoos on the inside of their biceps (Russell had his removed). Angelina Jolie got ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton’s name lasered off her arm. You get the picture. When things don’t work out, the leftover tat is kind of a debacle.
In short, while declarations of love are beautiful, tattoos are (pretty) permanent. Maybe next time, just buy a custom piece of wall art with the date on it.
