Tattoos aren’t forever … just ask Mel B, who literally cut a chunk out of her torso just to get rid of ex-husband Stephen Belafonte’s name.
While the more commonly used method is laser removal, Mel took a more extreme approach to make sure the ink was gone as fast as possible.
This indeed is a much more symbolic and dramatic act, as she had it done by a surgeon and required 12 stitches.

The original tat read, “Stephen, till death do us part you own my heart,” but Mel only removed Stephen’s name, so she can always get a new one tatted in … once the scar heals.
