Jennie Garth's Tattoo: Actress Reveals Post-Split Ink At Charity Event (PHOTO)

Jennie Garth showed some post-split positivity when she recently tattooed her three favorite words on the inside of her left arm -- "I love you."

"I don’t say [the words] enough to other people, let alone to myself,” the former "90210" actress told Health magazine at the Lindt Gold Bunny Celebrity Auction in New York on Tuesday. “When you say them, it makes you want to be gentle and kind. Even if you’re mad, there’s that love.”

It seems like Garth has come a long way in the last year. After her husband, "Nurse Jackie" actor Peter Facinelli, filed for divorce in March 2012, Garth told People magazine that she had been "very resistant" to the idea of ending their 11-year marriage.

"I didn't want it to happen," she said of the split. "It took me some time to come to peace with it."

Recently, Garth has been dating Big Gigantic drummer Jeremy Salken. Facinelli went public with his relationship with his "Nurse Jackie" co-star, Jaimie Alexander, in November 2012.
