At the time, Heidi explained:
"It was our fourth wedding, and we wanted to have our names tattooed together. So it's my husband's name and our three children – their initials, in the [three] stars."
Ah, the good ole days.
Now that the supermodel has split from Seal and moved on with bodyguard Martin Kristen, it makes sense that she'd want to erase her former lover's name.
The pic on the left (above) was taken in March of last year when the tattoo was still intact, while the pic on the right (snapped yesterday) clearly indicates that Heidi's visited a laser tattoo removal center a few times already.
Sure, it would've been easier not to have gotten the tattoo in the first place, but when you're blissfully in love, you tend to do crazy things.
At least you learned your lesson, Heidi!
