Think before you ink!
Some of our favorite celebrity parents have regretted their tattoos.
From Angelina Jolie‘s ‘Billy Bob’ tat, to Mark Wahlberg‘s multiple markings, let’s take a look at 5 celebrity parents who have altered or removed their ink.
- Malin Akerman:
New mom Malin Akerman turned the permanent reminder of her failed marriage to Roberto Zincone into a tribute for her 10-month-old son Sebastian.
Zincone filed for divorce from the Trophy Wife star, 35, just seven months after the couple welcomed their first child.
Prior to the split, Malin had a large ‘Z’ tattooed onto her wrist in honor of her husband’s last name. But she altered the ink on February 15 during a trip to Jose Cordova at Miami Ink.
“@josecordova thx for the beautiful tattoo 😉 #miamiink,” Malin captioned her new tattoo via Instagram.
The Rock of Ages actress added an ‘S’ over the ‘Z’ to represent her son’s initials.
- Johnny Depp:
Pirates of the Caribbean star and father-of-two, Johnny Depp, once dated actress Winona Ryder. During their whirlwind romance, the actor famously tattooed the words ‘Winona Forever’ to his right upper arm.
Unfortunately the relationship did not last forever and when they split in 1993, Johnny changed the tattoo to read ‘Wino Forever.’
- Angelina Jolie:
Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie had ‘Billy Bob’ tattooed on her left shoulder. Prior to her engagement to Brad Pitt, the Salt actress was wed to Billy Bob Thornton from 2000 to 2003.
She has since had the tattoo removed and covered with the coordinates of the birth places of their six children, adding an additional line with Brad’s birthplace. In turn, Billy Bob turned his ‘Angelina’ tattoo into an angel.
- Denise Richards:
Mom-of-three Denise Richards once had ‘Charlie’ tattooed on the inside of her left ankle, in honor of her then-husband, Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen.
After their divorce, ‘Charlie’ was transformed into a colorful fairy.
- Mark Wahlberg:
While many enjoy looking at Mark Wahlberg‘s muscular and inked body, the Ted actor had the “six or seven” tattoos he’s gotten over the years removed. And the actor is taking things a step further – he’s including his two eldest children Ella, 10, and Michael, 7, in the process.
“[All the tattoos] have meaning to me, but it’s both personal and professional,” Mark, also dad to Brendan, 5, and Grace, 3, said.
“I don’t want my kids getting tattoos,” he added. “And I wanted them to be [removed] by the time I did ‘The Fighter’ because putting make-up on and covering them up has always been a pain in the butt.”
He added: “I’ve taken my two older kids to the procedure so they see how painful it is and what I have to go through.”View Slideshow »»
