Nick Carter won’t always have Paris. Last week the singer got a skull-and-crossbones tattoo at a Marathon, Fla., parlor to cover up the “Paris” tattoo he got on his wrist in July when he and Paris Hilton were still going strong.
The pair dated for seven months, but they split just three weeks after the Backstreet Boy got his tattoo. At the time, Carter told PEOPLE: “Our relationship totally was based on distrust. She didn’t trust me. I didn’t trust her. I just want everybody to know that I’m single and ready to have fun again. I’m a wild and crazy guy.”
Still, even after the breakup, Carter seemed content with his link by ink.
“No, (I don’t regret the tattoo) because I love (Paris),” he said. “She’ll have a place in my heart always.” His heart? Perhaps. His wrist? Now, not so much.
