(Newser) – Surely you were moved last week by the touching story of 57-year-old Kelsey Grammer and his much younger wife, Kayte Walsh, who walked into a Chicago tattoo parlor last Saturday so that Grammer could get "Kayte" tattooed on his hip. But The Frisky fears for their union: It turns out, if these other 10 couples are anything to go by, getting matching ink does not guarantee lasting love:

  • Tony Parker and Eva Longoria: Now that their marriage is over, they probably wish they didn't have their wedding date permanently tattooed on them.

  • Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton: Angie once had "Billy Bob" on her shoulder; now it's the coordinates of her kids' birthplaces. Meanwhile, Thornton's "Angie" on his calf became an angel.
  • Britney Spears and Kevin Federline: Let's be honest. When you heard they got matching dice tattoos (pink for her, blue for him), you knew where their relationship was headed.
  • Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards: They used to have each other's names as tattoos, but Denise had hers turned into a fairy and Charlie had his lasered off.
