Woman finds out partners tattoo is of his dead ex-girlfriend

A woman was left horrified after she found out her partner's tattoo is of his dead ex-girlfriend.

After stumbling across a picture of her boyfriend's former partner on Facebook, an unknown woman realised that her partner - who has a giant tattoo of a woman's face across his chest - had his former lover's face inked on his body.

Speaking on Reddit, the unknown user wrote: "Like... it's not a small tattoo. It basically starts at his collarbone and reaches his navel.

"It's not only huge but really realistic and it's the only tattoo he has.

"When I first saw it I didn't really process what I was looking at.

"I thought it was maybe a fictional character or something so it wasn't a big deal as I also have a lot of tattoos."

"I told him about what I saw on Facebook and at this point he started bawling.

"We stood in the entryway of his apartment for a few minutes until he regained composure and explained that they dated several years ago, for roughly four months.

"To summarise, she died unexpectedly and in his grief-stricken state, he decided to commemorate her with a tattoo as he had always wanted one."

The woman went on to ask the internet for advice after discovering the meaning of her boyfriend's ink.

She added: "I don't know what to do.I love him dearly and see a future with him but I don't know if I can deal with seeing his ex-girlfriend's (giant) face every time he takes off his shirt.

"I know that sounds insensitive especially as she's dead but it's all I've been able to think about the past 24 hours. Can I get past this? Is this a dealbreaker?"
