Celebrity Tattoos For Exes: The Love Ends, But Ink Remains

Tattoos symbolizing everlasting love often last longer than the actual relationships. The latest celeb couple to get inked up only to split up a short while later? Jesse James and “L.A. Ink” star Kat Von D.

The reality star recently got a tattoo of James’ face from when he was a kid under her arm and shows it off to him on camera for her TLC show. It’s a loving gesture, no? Too bad the engaged couple just announced their split on Tuesday.

But James and Von D are not the first couple to experience a post-tat breakup, and they’ll probably not be the last. They just join the ranks of Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thorton, Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen, and Eva Longoria and Tony Parker in the ever-growing list of inked-up celebrity couples who didn’t last.
