It appears that some of Hollywood's most popular celebrities not only like to gush about their significant others all over their social media accounts, but they take it a step further and get ink for them too. A number of celebrities have gotten tattoos for their partners, showing their devotion and love for them, but most of these relationships hardly last, and these celebs are stuck with a permanent reminder of their exes on their skin.
The latest star to get inked for someone they're dating is SNL's Pete Davidson, who got not one, but two tattoos for his new beau Ariana Grande. The two have been dating for less than a month, but it seems like Davidson is head over heels for the "No Tears Left To Cry" songstress. There are quite a few stars that we see regretting their tattoos for love in the future. Artist Jhene Aiko tattooed rapper Big Sean's face on her arm, and has been dating him for only two years. Doesn’t that seem a little too soon? And Kylie Jenner got matching butterfly tattoos with boyfriend Travis Scott, but she also got matching ink with Tyga, and we all know what happened with that romance.
Check out the twenty stars on this list that will possibly regret their tattoos for love. Some of these stars are probably already regretting getting inked for their significant other and hopefully learned their lesson.
20 Pete Davidson Gets Ink For Ariana Grande
Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson is the latest celebrity to get not one, but two tattoos for his recently new girlfriend Ariana Grande. Davidson didn't waste any time showing his affection for the singer getting a black bunny mask tat behind his ear, which looks like the accessory Grande wore on her Dangerous Woman album cover and her initials etched on his thumb. Tattoo artist London Reese posted the photos of Davidson's new ink on his Instagram page with a caption that read, "We had a good night." However, Buzzfeed reported that the initial caption read, "We had a good night somewhere in the hills of Los Angeles. Pete loves him some Ariana." Davidson and Grande are a fairly new Hollywood couple, after Ariana split from rapper Mac Miller and Pete confirming his split with his girlfriend in May. However, the two have been showing tons of love for one another on social media, making their relationship official by Pete posting a photo on Instagram of the two posing in Harry Potter robes. One day later, Ariana shared a sweet photo of Pete kissing the side of her face and captioned the photo; "I thought u into my life woah! look at my mind." Are these two love birds moving way too fast?

We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love each another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths now. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision - just two best-friends realizing it's time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible." While the two have separated, they'll still have a reminder of one another thanks to the matching tattoos they both etched on their skin. Jenna and Channing commemorated their 2009 marriage by getting a line from their vows tattooed during their honeymoon trip to Bali. The pair got the words "Side by Side," with Channing's inked on his ribcage and Jenna's on her foot.

Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid showed his love and commitment to Friends actress Courteney Cox in 2015 by getting her initials inked on his wrist. The rocker and the actress began their relationship in 2013 and announced their engagement on June 26, 2014, however, after spending months planning their wedding in Northern Ireland, their romance hit rock bottom and the duo broke up. During the time of their split, Courteney shared, "We were engaged for over a year and then we broke up. There's something about, you know, he's from Ireland. And the way he regards love is precious," Cox told Bear Grylls during an appearance on his show Running Wild. "We have to treat it in a different way. It's more special - you coddle it. So I didn't know how to regard love the way he does. And I definitely made a lot of mistakes that I see - whether it's co-dependency or people pleasing. I didn't know how to bring it in. It was always external," she added. However, the two have since reconciled and it appears that Johnny wanted to make their love official by showcasing his new tat for Courteney. Showing off his tattoo on Instagram, McDaid captioned it, "Ta-two," followed by a heart emoji.
16 Kaley Cuoco And Ryan Sweeting Make Big Tattoo Mistakes
Kaley Cuoco said it best, "Note to self - do not mark your body with any future wedding dates." The Big Bang Theory actress documented her newest tattoo on her Instagram, which she got to cover up the one of her wedding date to her now ex-husband, tennis player Ryan Sweeting. "Thank you @nero_sct @studiocitytatooos for helping me right my wrongs," Cuoco captioned a photo of herself at the tattoo parlour as an artist tattoos her back. The actress later uploaded a photo of her new tattoo, a large moth that covers her previous tattoo of her wedding date in roman numerals. She captioned her black and white photo, "The deep, meaningful, larger than life meaning behind this beautiful piece of ink, is...It covered the last one." Cuoco married Sweeting on December 31, 2013 at a fire-and-ice themed wedding. However, after 21 months of marriage, things went sour and the couple split. Hopefully the actress learned her lesson. Kaley is now engaged to equestrian Karl Cook, who gave her a massive diamond ring on her 32nd birthday. Let's pray this star doesn't get a tattoo of Cook on a horse or anything else seemingly ridiculous to show her love for her beau.

How do you show the person you just got married too your ultimate love and affection? If you're actress Zoe Saldana's husband, Marco Perego, you get your wife's face tattooed on your arm. Perego stepped out with Zoe in Los Angeles back in 2013 dawning new ink on his left forearm that looked like a portrait of his wife. In 2017, Zoe shockingly admitted to James Corden on The Late Late Show With James Corden that she also got the face of her husband on her side. "I did it and it's here," Zoe said, pointing to her rib cage. "We're those kind of people," she told the audience, adding, "Oh, come on, be happy for us. He's had my face on his arm, so it's only fair. You want it to be in a place that's private, that you only show when you're like, in a bathing suit. We had this amazing artist, Mark Mahony, do the tattoo for us. And I've been wanting to get it for two years ... but I finally got it. Because my husband has tattoos coming out of his ears, and every time we would go get a tattoo for me, he would, like, push me aside, and he would end up getting a brand new tattoo. So, two years later, I finally got the tattoo," Zoe revealed.
14 Justin Bieber Gets Awkward Selena Gomez Tat
Justin Bieber is covered in tattoos but one of his most unusual tats is an angel on his arm that is supposed to be his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. During a cover shoot for GQ magazine, Bieber explained the meaning of some of his ink, and while many of them have a deep meaning to the singer, when he got to the tattoo of the angel, it got a little awkward. Bieber explained to the magazine, "Uh, this is my ex-girlfriend," Bieber mumbled in the video for GQ, pointing to the tattoo, and adding, "So I kinda try to cover her face up with some shading, but people still know." Bieber had previously shared a photo on his Instagram of his massive tattoo collection, telling his fans that he doesn't regret a single one. He captioned the photo, "If [tattooing] didn't hurt everyone would have them. Well maybe not [everyone]!! Over a hundred hours of [hard] work on my body and I wouldn't take back a single one..I ABSOLUTELY LOVE ART AND I'VE MADE my body a canvas and it's SO MUCH FUN." The funny thing is, Justin appeared to have cropped the photo just above where the portrait of Selena once was.
13 Jax Taylor Tattoos Ex Stassi Schroeder's Name
If you're a fan of Vanderpump Rules then you know about the past drama between former couple Jax Taylor and Stassi Schroeder. When the two called it quits, it appeared that Jax wasn't over Stassi and to show his love for her, got her name tattooed on his arm. It didn't work, and apparently, Jax is in the process of creating a sleeve on that arm. "I knew it went south [with Stassi] I could cover it up...I'm assuming one of these days it's going to have to go," he said back in 2014. Taylor reportedly also got a tattoo of another ex, Carmen Dickman. The tattoo is of a woman's face that also looks suspiciously like Stassi, too. Speaking about his dating life, Jax Taylor previously said, "I used to put my relationships first before everything else and make it work and it just didn't work for me. It's really tough for me to date, especially for a young girl who knows who I am from the show ... I've hurt enough people in my life and I don't want to hurt anyone else." Taylor has been going strong with the show's star Brittany Cartwright for a few years now, even though he did cheat on her, too. The two even got matching arrow tattoos.
12 Amber Rose Replaces Tattoo Of Wiz Khalifa's Face With Another Man
What's with celebrities getting a portrait of their significant other's face tattooed on their body? Amber Rose is another star that decided to get her man's face inked on her arm. Rose and rapper Wiz Khalifa were married in 2013 and the model commemorated their love with a tattoo on her arm of his face. The couple divorced a year later and Amber was left with a reminder of her ex-husband on her arm for years. During that time, Amber would cover the rapper's face with pictures of roses. However, she finally covered up Wiz Khalifa's face in 2017 with another man's face. Rose debuted her new ink in Miami, Florida, which appeared to be a man with sunglasses and a beard. Page Six reported that the mysterious man is supposed to be Guns N' Roses' guitarist Slash. Amber was previously linked to 21 Savage from the summer of 2017 until the start of 2018, but it’s been reported that the two have gone their separate ways. Thankfully, she did not get a tattoo for him while they were dating. And while she may not have a connection to Slash, Amber probably learned a good lesson about not getting a portrait of any person she's dating inked on her skin ever again.

In celebration of their 10-year anniversary back in 2016, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott took a trip to Paris and got matching tattoos on the inner biceps of their left arms.

However, the couple's relationship wasn't always perfect, Us Weekly revealed in December 2013 that McDermott had an affair with a woman named Emily Goodhand while filming in Canada. However, Spelling stayed with Dean, stating that the hard times made their marriage stronger. "We had to deconstruct our relationship," Tori said on the Today show, adding, "We really did, and I feel like we're kind of turning monogamy on its head, flipping it and being like, 'Well [...] through some fighting we've been told what life should be, what marriage should be.'" In 2013, McDermott got a tattoo to honor Tori, which was of her face that's located just above his elbow. "OMG My husband @Deanracer just surprised me w/hottest Tori@ tattoo in an unbelievably intimate spot," Spelling revealed in a Twitter post.

All of my tattoos are very feminine," she said on her Twitter page, along with a photo of her inked foot. She told her Twitter followers that Eddie told her the phrase during a vacation that they took together. Eddie and LeAnn's relationship made headlines when it was revealed that she was the other woman and was also cheating on her husband, Dean Sheremet with Eddie. Eddie was married to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, who he has two kids with, when the affair occurred. Glanville filed for divorce as a result of the adultery in August 2009, ending their eight years of marriage, and Rimes ended her marriage to Sheremet following the press coverage of the extramarital affair. In 2010, Rimes opened up about ending her first marriage, stating, "I take responsibility for everything I've done. I hate that people got hurt, but I don't regret the outcome." That same year, she and Eddie were engaged, and one year later, the two got married.

They separated in 2003, but two years later, the singer proposed to Hart during one of his races by writing on a pit board, "Will you marry me? I'm serious!" Hart didn't notice the sign at first and continued on for another lap. When he finally saw the sign, he stopped, and accepted her proposal. After, Pink made Carey finish his race and the two wed in Costa Rica in 2006. The pair ended up splitting in 2008; however, Carey appeared in her video for the song "So What," which is about their separation. At the same time, Pink and Hart were going through marriage counseling, and it seemed to work as they rekindled their romance in 2010. Later that year, she announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she and Carey were expecting their first child. Pink is also no stranger to getting tattoos. The singer has a tattoo that says "Tru Luv" on her wrist, and reportedly, Carey has the same one.
7 Beyonce And Jay Z Get Matching Ring Tattoos
Beyoncé is a trendsetter, and when she and Jay Z tied the knot on April 4, 2008, the duo decided to seal their love with matching wedding ring tattoos on their left fingers with the Roman numeral IV. Obviously, every other couple followed the trend, except; the millionaire songstress also got a diamond ring to go along with her new ink. Recently, it appeared that Beyoncé altered her tattoo. Initially, the tattoo represented both the stars birthdays, Beyoncé was born on September 4th and Jay Z was born on December 4th. The duo also got married on April 4th, the fourth day of the fourth month. To top it all off, the number has such great meaning to the stars that Beyoncé named her fourth album, 4, while Jay Z's latest album is titled, 4:44. The obsession with the number continued when they named their first child, Blue Ivy, and if you look at her name, Ivy, also contains the numerals IV. However, last year, it seemed that Beyoncé altered her tattoo. The songstress added a few more lines to her tat making it either look like the number 4, or when you look at it from the side, it also looks like a capital J.
6 Jhene Aiko's Massive Big Sean Tattoo
Singer Jhene Aiko must have been head over heels when she met Big Sean because she decided that to declare her love for him, she needed to get his face tattoo on the back of her arm. Aiko and Big Sean started dating March of 2016 and only a year later, she inked the rapper's face wearing a tuxedo on her arm. The pair announced their relationship in 2016, shorty after Jhene separated from producer Dot Da Genius. Big Sean was previously linked to both Ariana Grande and was engaged to former Glee star Naya Rivera. There were many rumors that the two broke up since they both unfollowed one another on Instagram, but it seemed that the singer cleared the air after The Shade Room asked Jhene about her relationship status. Jhene commented on the post and wrote, "and sometimes you don't want to follow ur boyfriend/girlfriend on social media ... if it weren't for u crazy blogs and ur speculation I would follow and unfollow him twice a day, everyday...it's not that serious.. i see him." Many people even thought she was getting her Big Sean tattooed covered up after rumors of a split, but she clarified that her tattoo artist was working on her back. The two stars are supposedly still gong strong, they are just busy fighting off those dirty breakup rumors all over social media. Still, we don't agree that getting a portrait tattooed of her boyfriend of only a year is such a smart idea.

"It was 3 a.m. in New Orleans, and I was about 22 and drunk," the singer said, adding, "It's not hard to connect the dots!" So what is this mysterious tattoo?

The couple both shared captionless photos of their new ink on their Snapchat accounts. Kylie got her tattoo above her ankle on her right leg, while Travis Scott got his tattoo in the same spot but on his left leg. According to Us Weekly, the tattoos may be for the rapper's song, Butterfly Effect, which fans think is about Jenner. Some of the words of the song include, "Heatin' up, baby, I'm just heatin' up/ Need ya love, not a need, it is a must. Feelin' stuck, you know how to keep me up/Icy love, icy like a hockey puck." While the two stars appear to be doing great, Jenner has made poor decisions when it comes to getting ink in the past for her boyfriends.

Brad Pitt reportedly also got a Buddhist symbol tattooed on the left side of his stomach by Kanpai. According to a source, the same ink was used for both Jolie and Pitt's tattoos "to symbolically bind them as husband and wife." The Sak Yant tattoos are believed to give whoever wears them magic powers associated with healing, luck, strength, and protection against evil. Jolie also has another tattoo representing the latitudes and longitudes of the locations where her children first entered their life, and also included Pitt's location when they were together. Sadly, the couple, who were together for twelve years, split in September 2016.

However, before their yearlong love ended, Milian wanted to express her devotion for Lil' Wayne by getting inked. Her tattoo, which reads, "Love hard..TnT," stands for Tina and Tunechi, which are both the stars nicknames. According to Billboard, Lil' Wayne reportedly gave Milian the nickname "Tina Turn Up." While they were together, Milian constantly gushed over him, saying, "What I like about him the most? You know, there’s so many things. He's a very genuine person. No matter what, love comes first with him and that's with family, and even with God, and our relationship." When the two split, Milian actually played out the breakup on an episode of her reality show, stating that a mysterious woman posted a photo of herself in his home. "I've never loved anyone the way I love Wayne, not even my ex-husband," Milian tearfully shared in her confessional, adding, "I've never had anyone understand me the way he has."

Green admitted that their marriage isn't always perfect, but they are working on it day by day. "Marriage is hard," Green said on his podcast, adding, "It's work, I think for anyone. I think when you get to the point like we have, where you have kids and you've been married for a while and we've been together for a long time, it's - you just take it day by day."
