Melanie Griffith has started removing her "Antonio" love heart tattoo permanently after deciding to take divorce from her husband Antonio Banderas.
Melanie Griffith and her husband of 18 years, Antonio Banderas, decided to divorce each other last month. And it looks like Griffith has no love left in her heart for her estranged husband.
That is why she has decided to permanently remove the "Antonio" love heart tattoo on her right arm dedicated to her husband. She was seen visiting a skin clinic on Monady in West Hollywood for the removal of her tattoo.

After deciding to get a divorce, the 56-year-old actress started using make-up to hide her tattoo with the "heart-shaped inking – which bears her estranged husband's name." But now it is time to let it go like her husband.
Hello! magazine today posted a picture of Melanie Griffith in which she was seen "leaving the clinic with a large patch of white gauze taped over the tattoo." She could have had a laser treatment for the removal of her tattoo.
The laser procedure to remove tattoos usually requires 3 to 20 sessions. How many Melanie has had, is still unknown. But she is on her way to getting rid of it.
Melanie Griffith met with Antonio on the set of Two Much in 1995. At that time, Melanie was married to actor Don Johnson. But she separated from him and married Antonio 18 years ago.
The couple also has a 17-year-old daughter Stella del Carmen. Griffith and Antonio announced their divorce last month in a joint statement.
"We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalize our almost twenty years of marriage in a loving and friendly manner honoring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together – Melanie & Antonio," it read.
And the current reports reveal that Melanie has also submitted the divorce papers to the Los Angeles Superior Court. She is also demanding the "custody of Stella and the couple's three pet dogs as well as spousal support for life."
