Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and we’d like to warncouples who are drunk on love (or just drunk) to think long and hardbefore partaking in the most notorious tattoo tradition: the nametattoo.
We know how it is… in the heat of the moment you and your specialsomeone (that person you just met at the bar) become filled withpassion (booze) and decide to express your love (lust) with matchingname tattoos. But eventually, the magic wears off and you’re stuck witha permanent reminder of your mistakes forever… unless you’ve got moneylike Johnny Depp to turn that “Winona Forever” tat into “Wino Forever.”But there is another solution, that’s not as painful or as expensive aslaser removal. Mind you it’s not painless or cheap, but it’ll do. Coverup tattoos may not erase your mistakes, but they cover them pretty well.
We wonder if the band underneath Janine’s name was to cover anotherex-girlfriend’s name. At this rate he’ll have a tattoo sleeve in notime.
Now she’s 0% Tony. The shape of the flower petals hides the name pretty well in this case.
Why didn’t anyone learn from Kat Von D that neck tattoos make it hard for your new partner to give you hickeys? At least this rosetattoo does a pretty good job of covering up Lisa’s name so Kelly cankiss it without getting jealous—until she gets to the OTHER tattoo atleast.
This is actually a pretty good cover up, using the details in thebranch to cover up the name. Kudos to Barry’s ex-girlfriend for comingup with something other than a flower.
Sometimes the best way to hide something is in plain sight. Sincethere was no way to cover this large “Cindy” tattoo, he just convertedit into a tribal.
Hopefully this zombie tattoo isn’t an indication that Daisy is nowpushing daisies… either way, it was obviously a messy break up.
Aw, you got a Mom tattoo? What? It was to cover up a tattoo withthat skank’s initials? You’re doing your own laundry from now on.
Roses are a little cliché, but not nearly as cliché as the banner heart tattoo.
Forget trying to cover it up with something elaborate… just let everyone know that the relationship is void… permanently.
Apparently we should be watching out for rose tattoosbecause they seem to be the ex cover up tattoo of choice. But can youblame people? The folds and shading in a rose disguise letters prettywell. She could never mention Troy and you would have no idea she wasstill technically married to him.
A two in one deal… she covered up Wayne’s name and those stupid flowers.
Tramp stamps are a great way to let everyone know who your baby daddy is. Why would you want to cover that up?
Turned out this has an extra letter, because you caught Garycheating on you with another guy… oh well, now it’s a pretty purpleflower tattoo.
We gotta hand it to the artist here… the stripped stockings cover up the script lettering very well. Shayne, eat your heart out.
Not every boyfriend/girlfriend tattoo has to be a name… in this caseit was their zodiac symbols, which even without a cover up doesn’treally have to be so obvious after the break up.
We think maybe her and Jeffrey are doing just fine and that it was just time to cover that stupid bear with something cooler.
Watch out Josh… we think she wants you dead.
Tell it like it is. Similar to the Tracy cover up, but much funnier… and itchier… also it burns when I pee now.
