Kaley Cuoco opened up about her divorce from former tennis pro Ryan Sweeting on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (see what she had to say about it here!), and also spilled a few details about her new tattoo.
The* Big Bang Theory* star got a moth tattooed just below the back of her neck to cover up existing ink of her wedding date (December 31, 2013) in Roman numerals. She revealed details in a lighthearted (yet extremely candid) conversation with Ellen about it:
“The [wedding] tattoo was a mistake. I had to cover it, I had to cover it with the wings, which I think turned out OK,” she said. But what prompted her to choose a moth in the first place?
“People do butterflies but why a moth? What’s the significance?” asked Ellen. “Because it was big enough to cover the numbers…the wings. Big wings,” she joked. “It’s just what I picked out when I was there.”
Here’s a look at Cuoco’s original tattoo:
Not only is it awesome to see Cuoco able to joke about the topic during such a difficult time (on national TV no less), it’s a reminder that it’s so not worth beating yourself up about a tattoo you no longer like.
Should you still weigh the potential regret about getting a permanent tribute to a significant other?
And here’s her new one:
Well, yes. Justin Bieber can also speak to that—he now has a shaded-over portrait of Selena Gomez on his arm—but in the end, you can always cover it up. If anything, we’ve found these makeup tricks work wonders.
