5 Romantic A-List Tattoo Fails

The wisdom of getting a tattoo to commemorate a relationship was on everyone’s mind this fall after pop supernova Ariana Grande and Saturday Night Life comic Pete Davidson split in October. The couple shared a whirlwind engagement beginning in March and got at least 10 tattoos that either matched or were inspired by one another, including tiny clouds and the badge number of Davidson’s late father. Grande and Davidson may have been the most tattoo-enthused celebrity couple, but they certainly aren’t the first A-listers to share ill-advised ink. Here are five other romantic celebrity tattoo fails.

Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder

Today, Johnny Depp is that weird pirate and Winona Ryder is the mom from the Netflix smash Stranger Things. Once upon the 90s, though, this pair was engaged after meeting on the set of Edward Scissorhands–and Depp had the “Winona Forever” tattoo to prove it. The couple split in 1993 after three years together, and the tattoo was altered to read “Wino Forever” instead.

Eva Longoria and Tony Parker

After the former Desperate Housewives actress and the pro basketball player married in 2007, they each got a tattoo of their wedding date in Roman numerals. Longoria also got Parker’s jersey number, 9, inked on the nape of her neck. Unfortunately, the marriage ended in 2010 after Parker was caught texting a teammate’s wife.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan

These actors married in 2009 after meeting on the set of Step Up in 2006 and honeymooned in Bali, where they celebrated with matching tattoos reading “side by side” (Tatum’s on his ribcage, Dewan’s on her foot). Unfortunately, though the pair lasted nine years and welcomed daughter Everly, they announced their split in 2018.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand

Funnyman Brand and singer Perry got a shared Sanskrit tattoo reading Anuugacchati Pravaha, which translates to “Go with the flow.” Unfortunately, they weren’t a lasting match. Despite a 14-month marriage, the couple split in 2012.

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton

Although this odd coupling is probably best remembered for the vials full of each other’s blood that they reportedly wore, Jolie also got a tattoo of her beloved’s name on her bicep. The marriage only lasted from 2000 to 2003, and she famously moved on to an also-doomed union with Brad Pitt.
