These ingenious tattoo fixes to cover up exes prove that scorned blokes can be pretty brutal


TATTOOS may be permanent, but unfortunately not all relationships are – so these scorned exes had to get creative after etching their former flames on their skin.

Break-ups are tough enough as it is without a giant inking of your missus on your shoulder blade.

Turning your ex into a mythical beast who turns people to stone isn’t the subtlest cover-up…

These people came up with some very inventive ways of covering up their tattoos – from the hilarious to the petty and downright brutal.

Some blokes were less than subtle after turning portraits of their wives and girlfriends into demons, zombies and even the mythical monster Medusa.

While others showed a bit more good humour – with Marge Simpson, Batman and even a fashion brand logo used as cover-ups.

And some just couldn’t be bothered at all so simply scribbled out their ex’s name and replaced it with their latest squeeze.

We guess some fellas never learn…

Check out the gallery below for our round-up of the best tattoo fixes.
