Melanie Griffith Covers ‘Antonio’ Tattoo


Most people just take off wedding rings when going through a rough divorce. But, what happens if you have his/her name tattooed (in your heart). What if it’s very visible? You can’t cover it with clothes. So, what do you do?

First of all, if you’re thinking straight, you wouldn’t get such a tattoo. But if you already did the deed, you can do what Melanie has done. She covered it up with makeup at the Taormina Film Festival in Sicily, Italy.

She wore a sleeveless dress and put makeup over the “Antonio” heart tattoo on her upper right arm. Melanie covered just his name, so it’s obvious that she’s trying to make “Antonio” disappear and not the love.

She could do it hardcore like Angelina Jolie did and get it lasered off and replaced by something more relevant to her.

Melanie has had the tattoo since 1998.

Griffith filed for divorce on June 6, citing irreconcilable differences with Antonio, 53-year old, after 18 years of marriage.

The actress was still wearing her wedding band, when she was spotted running errands in Los Angeles.

A source close to Griffith told People that the two, who have a 17-year old daughter, Stella, have had marital problems for some time now.

The split is not something new and out of the blue – they have had issues for years,” the source said.

The fights and separations got to be too much.
