Johnny Depp Changes Amber Heard Tattoo To Read 'Scum'

This is 'Wino forever' all over again.

Johnny Depp is altering his tattoos dedicated to wife Amber Heard in the wake of their split, restraining order and domestic violence hearing.

His knuckle tattoo, of Heard's nickname 'Slim', has now been changed to say 'Scum' - with the 'l' and 'i' being redrawn as a "c" and "u", respectively.

This wasn't the only inking of Depp's bearing Heard's nickname, he also has the phrase "Come with me... Slim" on his right elbow, and a portrait of her on his arm - which he has since covered up according to photos on TMZ.

Heard's nickname is reported to be a reference to actress Lauren Bacall, known for playing Slim against Humphrey Bogart's Steve in the 1944 film 'To Have and Have Not'.

In a 2011 interview, promoting their film 'The Rum Diary', Depp told USA Today: "When I first saw Amber, it was like seeing an old-time movie star. It was like I was seeing Lauren Bacall."

This isn't the first time Depp has altered a tattoo after a break up - in 1994 he changed a tattoo dedicated to ex-girlfriend Winona Ryder which read 'Winona forever' to say 'Wino forever'.
