Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom get matching hand initial tattoos for each other

I know there’s no proven correlation between getting a tattoo for your lover or spouse and splitting up – marriages pretty much have a 50/50 chance. It just seems like people stupid enough to get tattoos for each other that aren’t strictly symbolic always end up stuck with an obvious reminder of their ex indelibly marked on their body. For those with the money, they can opt for painful laser surgery.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, who haven’t received much media attention in a whole two weeks, decided to get each other initials tattooed – on their hands. Because tattoos prove that you love the person. Just ask Mel B, who told Larry King that the impulsive tattoos of each other’s names that she and Eddie Murphy got two weeks after meeting each other proved that they were “very much in love and wanted to have a family together.” Murphy later broke up with her by saying in a TV interview that he wasn’t sure the baby she was pregnant with was his. To be fair, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got tattoos for each almost immediately too, and they’re still together a whole year and a half after their quickie wedding.

Khloe described the decision to get tattoos as an impulsive one, just like everything else this couple does:

They may not have escaped on a honeymoon yet – but Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are still celebrating their recent nuptials. On Saturday, the duo got new tattoos of each other’s initials, the reality star writes in a new blog post.

“When we were at dinner, I just knew I wanted a tattoo for Lamar in the web of my hand,” Kardashian writes in the post. “Once we got to the shop we decided on getting each other’s initials. I got “LO” in cursive on my right hand and he got “KO” on both hands.”

Kardashian, who already has “I love you” tattooed in her father’s handwriting on her wrist and a cross and angel wings with the word “father” written above it tattooed on her back, says the new ink is especially meaningful since it “symbolizes something or someone that is important to you.” – Brian Orloff

Despite Khloe and Lamar’s latest stupid move, they have as good a chance at making it as any other couple gunning for a reality show who got faux-married a couple months after meeting each other. While we’ve heard that Khloe and Lamar have finally agreed on the terms of their prenup, we haven’t heard that they’ve made their marriage legal yet. I’m sure they’ll be releasing the news as soon as it happens.

    A guy my ex used to know had all kinds of tattoos and decided to get his wife’s name on his arm. Well they divorced and he got a “Void” stamp tattooed over her name. Pretty clever, but I would definitely never tattoo someome’s name on me!

    And is she still going around flashing her ring to everyone?

  2. Firestarter says:

    @Meghan- I love that! I wish I could tattoo VOID across all my former relationships!

    As far as these two and their tattoos- Aren’t they clever and full of fresh ideas expressing their love!


  3. Lindsay says:

    I think its kind of sweet that she got a tattoo with her dad’s handwriting. These tattoos just look like they have drawn on their hand with a pen, like middle school girls with a crush.

  4. Lantana says:

    I sat here thinking “KO”? Why would he get KO? Then it hit me. Is she really going to change her name?

  5. Judy says:

    Their need to prove something to the public (and I think it’s more the public than themselves) is stupid. What morons.

  6. MeowBea says:

    Well now they really Jinxed their marriage. LMAO :/ . Morons

  7. El Predicto says:

    As Michael K pointed out on DL, the greatest thing is the Hostess cupcake wrapper in the backround. Very apropos!

  8. Michelle says:

    Can we just stop paying attention to these two nobodies already? Seriously, are there no stories about REAL stars to cover?

  9. GatsbyGal says:

    At least when they divorced Lamar will have KO on his hand, which is pretty cool. Good for punching.

    Khloe’s going to be stuck with LO…I guess she could have a W tattooed on the end of it.

  10. L says:

    oh geez, i am betting that khloe is stumped as to why her and her lovebird haven’t been dubbed with a combo nickname like all the other cool celebrity couples. so with the tattoos she is trying to jumpstart a cool moniker for the two of them. and as khloe prides herself on being the “crazy” sister, “loko” would be so fitting. i doubt she will really change her name from kardashian, but “lokk” doesn’t work. she is totally trying to plant this idea.

  11. kelly says:

    Might as well follow up one bad decision with another…

  12. filthy cute says:

    Lamar forgot the “NG” to complete his tattoo.

  13. Kerri says:

    Well if this relationship wasn’t doomed before it now is. Hasn’t she seen those E! stories about celebrity tattoos and spouses etc – Johnnie Depp, Angelina Jolie just to name a couple.

    I could never understand why people tattoo someone else’s name on them. i had a friend who tattooed her boyfirend’s name under her waistline so that her undies will cover them up – sure they became engaged but they are now broken up and she is stuck with his name by her privates as a constant reminder of him. So stupid!!!

  14. filthy cute says:

    Is apropos the right word? It means at an opportune time or seasonably…

  15. For Sooth? says:

    Nothing says impending divorce like permanent ink.
