Talk about a cover up!
Aaron Carter took to Instagram to debut his brand new ink, but the embattled singer's latest tat is in a suspicious place — exactly where he used to have a tattoo of ex-girlfriend Melanie Martin's name!
Weeks after a tumultuous breakup with Melanie — who is also the mother of his child, Prince, 4 months — that resulted in him being served with a restraining order for domestic abuse, the "Let The Music Heal Your Soul" singer seems to be moving on from the relationship and focusing on someone else important to him — his late sister.
Following in the footsteps of other members of her family, including Backstreet Boys alum Nick Carter, Leslie was a singer who saw some success in the early 2000s.
Aaron previously joked on social media that his sister could "kick me and Nick’s a** as a singer like so bad," but that her career didn't take off because she had "some struggles."
Following a years-long battle with drug addiction, Leslie passed away in early 2012 at the age of 25.
"Life is such a valuable learning lesson, IF you always it to be that," Aaron wrote via Instagram on Saturday, March 26, as he debuted his new ink. "With that being said, this is my body and this tattoo by @tattoo_mike_13 is to commemorate the passing of of my sister Leslie Barbara Carter.."
The "I Want Candy" artist went on to share that he remembered his older sister as an "amazing" mother and someone he had always wanted to make "proud."
"Leslie I know your [sic] in paradise. I do feel you inside," he continued. "The things you taught me and your favorite color being blue you were a Gemini and you were fearless."
Aaron then confessed the elaborate butterfly tattoo was, in fact, a cover up to hide his ex's name just above his eyebrow, noting he would not allow his face to represent "one who clearly hasn’t show[n] she loves me."
As OK! previously reported, Melanie and Aaron called it quits in February after the couple got into a heated argument in which the mother-of-one alleged the singer got physical with her.
She later petitioned L.A.'s Superior Court for a restraining order on Monday, February 28.
