While Teen Mom's Javi Marroquin has deleted any tattoo trace of his one-year-anniversary celebration with Lauren Comeau at Aggression Tattoo in Pennsylvania, we have the screenshots.
Marroquin covered the matching tattoo he once had with his ex-girlfriend, Briana DeJesus.
With the help of tattoo artist Mike Mara, the military vet replaced the king chess piece on his ribcage— matching DeJesus’ queen piece—the 26-year old captioned his Instagram, “Checkmate.”
“Happy anniversary babe @lauren3elizabeth,” he added. “Kids, don’t get tattoos.”
28-year-old Comeau shared her side of the anniversary date, posting pictures of the two kissing, writing, “Our love story; it wasn’t traditional and it wasn’t always easy but it’s ours and every day it gets sweeter,” she wrote. “I am thankful for you and this life we are building together. With you is exactly where I want to be. One year down my love.”
An unconventional love-story, not only in the sense that the relationship is aired on television, but also in the sense that Marroquin actually dated Comeau first. He was with Comeau from July 2017 to September 2017, and dated DeJesus quickly after their split, from October 2017 to January 2018.
Marroquin and Comeau have a son, Eli. Marroquin also shares son Lincoln, 5, with ex Kailyn Lowry. Lowry and Marroquin share an infinity sign tattoo, captioning that instagram post, “Matching tatts, this Ink don't come off. Even if rings come off.”
In Marroquin’s Instagram stories he told the camera that “Lauren wanted one thing for our anniversary.”
He also explained that the inking was made as a gesture of love, and not out of jealousy.
“There is no jealousy of Briana on Lauren’s part. I simply did this out of respect for our relationship … My relationship with Lauren has grown over the past year and I do see myself spending the rest of my life with her, so out of respect, I wanted to cut all ties of my past and wanted to cover the tattoo,” he said.
DeJesus has said she was happy for her ex and his new family, wishing them “nothing but the best.”
“I don’t wish it was my baby. … All he wanted was a family and he got it. So good for him. Like I said, I’m sending my best wishes and have no hard feelings,” DeJesus said.
In an Instagram Q&A DeJesus said she had no plans to cover up her queen piece.
“I love my tattoo. I won’t cover it up, but I will add more to it.”
