Kelly is obviously not the first celeb to get inked for love. Even Beyoncé got matching tattoos of the Roman numeral four with her husband Jay Z to commemorate their wedding.

Ariana Grande has reportedly altered a tattoo of hers recently, a tattoo that was linked to her former fiancé Pete Davidson. On her Thank u, next behind the scenes video, Ariana Grande showed off her ‘new’ Myron tattoo. Refinery29 reported that Myron is the name of the dog of her former boyfriend Mac Miller. 

This tattoo covers what is reported to have been a tribute tattoo of the firefighter badge number of Pete Davidson’s late father, with the number 8418 tattooed on her foot, which Pete also had tattooed on his forearm.

Another celeb who has inked for love is Kylie Jenner. Her recent ‘love tattoo’ is a matching butterfly tat with her rapper boyfriend Travis Scott. She previously covered up a tattoo of a cursive “t” on her leg that was reported to be for her former boyfriend Tyga.

One of the sweetest couple tattoos are those belonging to fashion designer Victoria Beckham and her husband David Beckham. The couple reportedly have multiple tattoos dedicated to each other and to their children.
