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.
