Will Zayn remove his ink of ex Gigi? A look back on the tattoos that didn’t survive celebrity break-ups

Yesterday, self-confessed ‘Zigi’ fans wept all over their iPhones following the news that model Gigi Hadid and singer Zayn Malik have called it quits.

During their two-year dating stint, the A-list couple cemented their status as one of the most famous duos in the celebrity sphere through PDA-heavy pap shots and sweet Instagram tributes aplenty.

But it didn’t take long for the media circuit to turn its attention to Zayn’s commitment to proving his love by tattooing meaningful shout-outs to past girlfriends.

Yes, it seems the former One Directioner didn’t learn from his previous relationship with Perrie Edwards, as the singer appears to have Gigi’s eyes emblazoned across his chest.

And after covering up a doodle of a beanie-wearing Perrie on his arm, the world is wondering how the 25-year-old will tackle his newest tatt.

But it’s a running theme in the A-list world with stars forced to bid farewell to sentimental roman numerals and let’s not forget, the noughties star trend after splitting from their significant other.

From Angelina Jolie to Rihanna, take a look back at some of the most famous celebrity tattoos which sadly didn’t survive the break-up.
