Luckily, some crafty tattoo artists have the skills and creativity to turn them into something new, allowing them to let go of the past and move on.
We have come up with a list of name cover up tattoo ideas that were dedicated to their exes!

31. Rose: Glad JS was covered over with a big, beautiful rose.
32. Summer: This is great. I assume this person met Summer in barber school. Too bad it came time to cut Summer out of their life. But this little stick figure painter looks like he’s got it under control.
33. Faith: Whoa, this is clever. Frank became “faith” with a cross in front of it. This tattoo artist is a literal genius. I for one have total faith that, with this tattoo coverup, Frank will soon be completely erased from his ex’s memory.
34. Feather: Now, instead of his name, she has a huge, gorgeous feather, one that was definitely part of those wings she flapped to get the heck away from her ex. Now, when people ask her about it, she can be like, “Oh, it symbolizes my freedom… from a real jerk!”
35. Vroom Vroom: Look, the car was always the love of his life. Now he has the room to properly memorialize her. I wouldn’t be surprised if he actually broke up with Damla just so he could get the car tattoo without feeling guilty.
