There is an important lesson to be learned from Eva Longoria’s ‘nine’ tattoo:
• Never have a tattoo referring specifically to your other half. Eva chose to have the word ‘nine’ tattooed onto her skin when she was married to basketball star Tony Parker; it referred to his team number. They split up after it had been revealed that he had been unfaithful.
Apparently the star of Desperate Housewives had trouble getting rid of the persistent tattoo, but laser tattoo removal finally triumphed and removed the embarrassing reminder of her failed marriage.
Unfortunately, it would seem that the message did not filter back down to her current squeeze, Eduardo Cruz. The younger brother of Penelope Cruz is currently dating Eva and apparently had her name tattooed onto his arm just weeks after they started seeing each other.
There are too many examples of tattoo regret to ignore the evidence that tattoos dedicated to romantic partners have a high chance of causing major embarrassment when the rose-tinted specs finally come off and the relationship fails.
In these cases, laser tattoo removal is the fastest and most effective way to remove the offending name/design, but prevention is always better the cure!
