10 Stars Who Got Tattooed In The Name Of Love

Charles Melton is declaring his love for Camila Mendes with—a temporary tattoo! Yep, that’s right, Melton had us all freaking out on Valentine’s Day when he showed off a tattoo that read “Cami,” and it ended up being fake. 

Earlier this week, the Riverdale actress posted a photo on her Instagram Story of Melton flashing the “Cami” tattoo across his chest. Many fans were shocked and excited about the new ink, but Mendes declared on Instagram and Twitter that it wasn’t real.


Real or fake, this got us thinking about the stars who actually got ink in the name of love. Here are 10 celebrities who’ve tatted up for their significant other: 

Pete Davidson

During Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s engagement, the Saturday Night Live actor got at least four tattoos inspired by his ex-fiancé. After making their romance official back in May, Davidson got Grande’s initials inked on his hand and her “Dangerous Woman” bunny ears behind his ear. He also had her last name tattooed across his rib cage, People reports. As well, the couple had a few matching tattoos. 

In October of 2018, Davidson covered up the bunny ears with a giant heart. Grande covered the small tattoo that read “Pete” with a heart and an arrow going through it. She also altered the matching “reborn” tattoo she got with Davidson. In the behind-the-scenes of her “Thank U, Next” music video, Grande revealed that she covered the tattoo in honor of the comedians father, who died on 9/11, with new ink in honor of her late ex Mac Miller’s dog, Myron.
