Just when we thought things couldn't get any worse over on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
But that wasn't the case!
It’s now been a month since Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas announced their split, and as we previously reported, the 56-year-old actress has now gone through with getting her Antonio tattoo removed.
Well, she’s at least started the procedure, because if we know anything from nine years of How I Met Your Mother, it’s that tattoo removal is an arduous and painful process.
Melanie was seen leaving a skincare specialist sporting a bandage directly over her old heart tattoo on her right upper arm.
We definitely don’t blame Melanie for wanting to get rid of the reminder of her failed marriage, but we don’t know if we’d be able to withstand the pain of all those laser surgeries!
Tattoo removal normally takes many sessions to erase the ink, so we’re sure there will be just as many more candids of Melanie exiting laser clinics in the near future.
But even when the tattoo is completely gone, she’s still going to have to go through a messy divorce after her 18-year marriage. Something that could prove to be even more painful than the lasers.

Just a number of days after their sad announcement a few press outlets speculated that Antonio moved onto Sharon Stone and a number of other actresses quickly after his divorce announcement.
Many celebs opt to keep quiet, regardless of whether or not the rumor is true, but the Basic Instinct star is not standing for any of these claims!
In fact, the actress is a VERY close family friend to Antonio and Melanie, she said:
It was bound to happen sooner or later, right?
It makes perfect sense, though. Imagine how tedious it would be to put layers upon layers of makeup over a tattoo every day! Might as well just laser it all off!
That's exactly what Mel seems to be doing!
The actress was spotted entering a business named Dr. Tattoff's on Thursday afternoon and it's pretty safe to assume what she's doing there!
We wonder how many treatments it'll take to get that tattoo off her bicep…this probably won't be the last time we see her at the tattoo removal establishment!

After covering up her love ink dedicated to Antonio on her arm at recent events, Melanie is ready to say bye to it for good.
We're sure Antonio won't be happy to hear that, but it sounds like he still has time to stop his lady love. She's supposedly been unable to find the time yet to go in for the heavy duty job.
But until then, Melanie certainly won't be showing off that ink with pride.
While taking part in a photo shoot for a magazine showcasing her newly decorated Central Park West apartment, Melanie has reportedly asked that the ink be Photoshopped out!
Sorry, Antonio. It looks like you're on your way out whether you like it or not!!

The Working Girl actress was spotted on a dinner date with the Crash star on Friday evening in Rome, Italy, but the meal was far from romantic!
It seems as if the two were simply platonic pals since Matty brought a lady friend to the restaurant with him!
Besides, it's only been like, two weeks since the 56-year-old actress filed for divorce from her soon-to-be exhubby!
She'll be back on her feet in no time!

Well, well, well, what do we have here??
Now, it's completely covered!
The Working Girl actress attended another night at the 60th Taormina Film Festival in Italy on Thursday night and showed off her bare arms, drawing attention to the concealed ink!
Mel's love ink has definitely been a hot topic since she and Antonio made the decision to get a divorce after 19 years of marriage!
Removing that tattoo will probably be just as rough as the divorcing process, so covering it up is a good call!

That was unusually quick!
Well, to be more accurate, Antonio's name was covered up by a ton of make-up; the heart, however, is still fully in tact!
On Tuesday evening, Mel showed up at the Italy's Taormina Film Festival in support of her friend, Eva Longoria where she debuted the empty heart on her sleeve and a ringless finger!
After announcing their divorce, it would make sense for the 56-year-old to get rid of the whole tattoo all together!
But in this case, it seems more like she is trying to make a BOLD statement about the status of their relationship. Receiving the message loud and clear, Mel! Antonio probably feels the same way! LOL!
