(Newser) – Melanie Griffith's divorce from Antonio Banderas may be amicable, but that doesn't mean she wants his name permanently affixed inside a heart tattoo on her shoulder. Griffith used make-up to cover up the name, though the rest of the tattoo remained visible, when she attended the Taormina Film Festival yesterday in Italy, Page Six reports, noting that she was also sans wedding ring. And maybe the split won't be so friendly—TMZ reported over the weekend that the pair is set for a custody battle ... over their three dogs. Click for pictures of the altered tattoo.
