A spurned lover who had the name of his significant other inked on his neck found himself in a tricky situation after she dumped him.
Rather than crying over spilt milk however, Jordan Cotton chose to have a line struck through the emblem “Olivia”, with the added comment: “S*** happens”, the Mirror reported.
The drama did not end there however, with Cotton, 21, later ending up before Blackburn magistrates after smashing Olivia Nuttall’s BlackBerry during a subsequent row.

Imran Hussain, defending, said Cotton got the tattoo during the “fairy tale” stage of the 18-month relationship, and regretted the incident.
Mr Hussain said:“She (Olivia) wasn’t very happy when she saw the edited version, just two weeks after they split. This caused a row during which he grabbed her phone and threw it against a wall.
“He accepts the relationship is now over and he doesn’t intend to have any further contact with this lady, or any more tattoos, the Lancashire Telegraph reported.
