Beyonce Appears To Have Removed Her 'IV' Wedding Tattoo

Back in 2008, Beyonce told Essence magazine that she got the tattoo in lieu of an engagement ring because, "People put too much emphasis on that. It's just material and it's just silly to me."

Instead of a sparkler, the singer wears a band and the Roman numeral, since the couple has an obsession with the number 4 -- or at least they used to.

So what does it mean if Beyonce did removed the tattoo? It's all speculation so far, much like the multitude of theories as to why Solange lost it on Jay Z after the Met Gala. And while there were reports that Beyonce stormed out of dinner with Jay Z this past weekend, the couple was all smiles when they rolled into the Nets playoff game on May 12, with no signs of marital distress.
