Melanie Griffith erases Antonio Banderas tattoo after divorce announcement

I was pretty bummed out when I heard Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas had split after 18 years of marriage. Honestly, I still can't believe it. But by the looks of it, Melanie seems to already be moving on. She made a pretty bold statement on Tuesday at Italy's Taormina Film Festival showing off her old heart tattoo located on her right arm, which no longer includes Antonio's name. I'm not sure if she's in the process of having it removed or if she just covered it up with heavy makeup, but either way, it says a lot!

According to Us Weekly, Melanie first showed off the heart tattoo back in 1998. Now the heart just shows a blurred patch where Antonio's name used to appear. You can't blame Melanie for covering it up. How awkward would that have been to show up to an event with a tattoo that features your soon-to-be ex-husband's name? Still, I think I would have stuck to a long or mid-sleeve top  instead, regardless of how hot it's been lately.

Melanie and Antonio aren't the first celebrity couple to get inked for each other. Here are a few other stars who got tattooed for love. I'm sure a lot of them are already regretting it! --Additional reporting by Michelle Regalado
