Amy Winehouse has been making plans to cover up her Blake tattoo.
The Rehab singer, who divorced Blake Fielder-Civil last July, has the word "Blake's" and a pocket design inked above her heart - and now celebrity tattoo artist Henry Hate revealed the singer has been in talks with him for several months about covering it up with a new design.
Hate said Amy was not emotional about removing her ex-husband's name, saying: "I wouldn't say she's flippant about it but she was the one that brought up the issue of the tattoo and I didn't ask her what her reasons were."
He went on: "I imagined they're the obvious reasons, that she wanted some sort of closure and to move on. She was just like 'It needs to go'."
Meanwhile, Hate - whose other celebrity clients include Alexander McQueen, Pete Doherty, Paul Thomson of Franz Ferdinand and Preston of The Ordinary Boys - is set to create what is claimed to be the world's first ice tattoo next month.
He will tattoo a giant block of ice, with a Nissan Cube car frozen inside, using Japanese Samurai chisels - the traditional method of tattooing used in the Far East - to etch his design.
Hate's creation is set to be unveiled on London's South Bank to mark the launch of the Nissan Cube on February 9 at 9am.
