*Mayte Garcia has some new ink on her wrist dedicated to the memory of her late ex-husband Prince.
The “Hollywood Exes” star, who was married to Prince from 1996-2000, debuted the new tatt on Tuesday at a red carpet event for PETA. Accompanied by her adopted daughter, Gia, on what would’ve been Prince’s 58th birthday, Mayte revealed what appears to be a mandala with Prince’s male/female symbol in the middle.
“This makes me smile and cry… Love is eternal!! Will remember that every time I look at my hand,” Garcia captioned a video of her getting tatted up shortly after his passing.
This makes me smile and cry… Love is eternal!! Will remember that every time I look at my hand. To all of you who are hurting …. I’m sorry for your pain as well!! But love him for eternity! Thank you @nspired1 for making such a beautiful piece and @luvinflyingcolors for making such a beautiful video! I’m smiling with tears! And thank you TAC cream for making it painless ???
In a Periscope before getting inked, the 42-year-old told viewers: “I’m gonna do a tattoo in honor of my ex-husband. I don’t like saying ex, because in my world, I didn’t divorce him. He did, I didn’t. So thank you. Thank you for my loss. It sucks. It sucks … He is the father of my child. Prince forever.”
Prince and Mayte had one child together, Boy Gregory, in 1996. Their son passed away one week after he was born.
