Top 10 Celebrities Who Got Tattoos for their Partner

Who doesn’t love a little ink? Welcome to, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Celebrities Who Got Tattoos for their Partner.

For this list, we’ll be taking a look at various tattoos that celebrities got in honor of their partners. Whether they’re good or bad is for you to decide!

#10: Offset for Cardi B

Migos rapper Offset found the perfect way to cement his relationship to wife Cardi B back in 2017. He got a neck tattoo of Buttercup from “The Powerpuff Girls” with his lovers name sprawled underneath. The tat is certainly a bold one but seeing as how Offset is pretty much covered in them the decision couldn’t have weighed that heavily on him. The good thing about this one is that if things ever go sour in their relationship all Offset has to do is get the name portion covered up! That way he’ll still have a totally badass picture of Buttercup on his neck…right?

#9: Zayn Malik for Perrie Edwards

Zayn Malik, the former One Direction member and current solo act got a picture of girlfriend Perrie Edwards’s face on his arm in 2013. Unfortunately the duo didn’t last and he was forced to have it covered up after the split. Now you’d think that Malik would have taken this experience to heart and made sure to be more cautious with his next tattoo . . . but no. He went on to get Gigi Hadid’s eyes tattooed across his chest, just months before they broke up, although they got back together again shortly afterwards. Hopefully this one will work out for him.

#8: Marc Anthony for Jennifer Lopez

Anthony and Lopez were married for a decade, which is a basically a century in celebrity relationship years. During that time he decided to demonstrate his love for his wife by getting her name tattooed on his wrist. The move wound up being a bad one. The singers split in 2014 and it left Anthony in a bit of a pickle, especially since he got remarried that same year and, you know, most people aren't wild about their husband having someone else’s name tattooed on them. We think that this was at least partially responsible for Anthony later having it covered up.

#7: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon for Each Other

This former celebrity couple know all too well what it’s like to be haunted by your ex in the form of a tattoo. Carey got a tattoo of a butterfly on her lower back with Cannon’s name adorning its body and Cannon got a tattoo of her first name sprawled across his entire upper back. These inky decisions turned out to be massive mistakes when the couple separated in 2014. In the aftermath of the break up, Nick’s tattoo was covered up and Mariah’s altered. Probably for the best…

#6: Melanie Griffith for Antonio Banderas

Actors Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas got married in 1996 and Griffith would eventually decide to commemorate their love with a tattoo. It was simple enough, just a heart with Banderas’ first name written across it, but it ultimately proved to be a mistake seeing as how the two split in 2014. And despite the divorce being done “in a loving and friendly manner” it appears that Griffith wanted to take back the skin she’d given him, first covering up the tattoo during red carpet appearances, and then undergoing treatments to have it progressively removed.

#5: Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton for Each Other

Despite an age gap of 20 years. Academy Award winners Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton got married back in 2000. This declaration of love was apparently not enough for Jolie, who decided to get “Billy Bob” tattooed above a previously existing dragon on her upper arm. Her beau also got a couple of tats in celebration of the union. The volatile relationship officially came to a close in 2003 when the two got divorced. Jolie would later cover up both the name and the dragon with the coordinates of her children’s birthplaces.

#4: Kat Von D for Jesse James

Tattoo artist Kat Von D, best known for her starring role on the reality TV series “LA Ink” should know a thing or to about regrettable tattoos. Unfortunately she failed to apply this logic to herself when she decided to get a school-age portrait of her at-the-time boyfriend Jesse James. While the two would go on to get engaged, the relationship failed to take the next step and in 2011 they broke up. Kat Von D had the portrait removed the following year. Seeing as how it was on her ribcage, we can imagine that the process hurt quite a bit.

#3: Johnny Depp for Winona Ryder

It was a bold move . . . and it didn’t pay off. Johnny Depp’s decision to tattoo “Winona Forever” on his upper arm would prove to be a bad one. Adding to the infamy of the situation was the fact that both were A-list actors in one of the most highly publicized celebrity relationships of the 90s. When they broke up Depp did the smart thing and had it altered to “Wino Forever”, which is actually pretty legit. Unfortunately, he made the same mistake again when he had his nickname for second wife “Amber Heard”, “slim”, tattooed on his hand . . . which he then changed to first “scrum”, then “scam” after their bitter divorce.

#2: Amber Rose for Wiz Khalifa

If we’ve said it once we’ve said it a thousand times: getting your lover’s face tattooed on your body is never a good idea; no matter how in love you think you are. With that being said, we give you Amber Rose’s portrait tat of former husband and rapper Wiz Khalifa. The brash piece depicted Khalifa’s smiling face and it adorned the back of her upper arm. Of course when the two got divorced in 2014 the thing had to go, just not right away. Rose waited until 2017 to have it altered. Now it looks like Slash, which we suppose never goes out of style.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

Heidi Klum for Seal

Tyga for Kylie Jenner

Iggy Azalea for A$AP Rocky

#1: Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande for Each Other

Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande weren’t exactly shy about their relationship, jumping into the spotlight with a string of public appearances and social media posts. In fact, they were so confident about their engagement they got a series of matching tats, including “Mille Tendresse” neck tattoos, clouds on their fingers, and the word “reborn” on their thumbs. Davidson especially went all out, with “Grande” on his ribs”, a bunny ear mask on his neck and their pet pig, Piggy Smalls, on his torso. After just four months, however, the couple announced their split in October 2018. Talk about too much too soon.
