Kaley Cuoco is putting the past behind her. The Big Bang Theory star has covered up her wedding date tattoo with a large new moth design following her split from husband Ryan Sweeting. Kaley, 29, described her original inking – three rows of Roman numerals on her back, to mark her New Year’s Eve nuptials – as a "mistake" as she shared pictures of her new tattoo on Instagram this week.
"Thank you @nero-sct @studiocitytattoo for helping me right my wrongs," Kaley captioned a photo of herself hunched over in a tattoo parlour chair. "Note to self – do not mark your body with any future wedding dates #under30mistakes #donttakeyourselftooseriouslykids."

Alongside a second picture, unveiling her new design, she wrote: "The deep, meaningful, larger than life meaning behind this beautiful piece of ink, is….. It covered the last one."
Kaley tied the knot with tennis star Ryan Sweeting on 31 December, 2013 after a whirlwind six-month romance. The couple announced they were divorcing in late September after less than two years of marriage.

"Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting have mutually decided to end their marriage," the actress' rep confirmed. "They ask for privacy at this time. No further statement will be issued regarding this matter."
Following the split, newly-single Kaley deleted all traces of her estranged husband from social media, and also returned to using her maiden name.

She went on to publicly thank her fans for their support. "I'm feeling completely overwhelmed with the outpouring of kindness and support from the people that surround me and from those I have never even met," she wrote.
"I want you to know, I read all your comments and your sweet words have touched me deeply. I'm incredibly grateful for all your love as I start this next chapter in my life."
