Got a broken heart? Get some new ink. 

Actress Kaley Cuoco did just that when she split from her husband of less than two years, tennis player Ryan Sweeting, in September 2015. On an episode of "The Ellen Show," Cuoco talked about her original tattoo and explained the significance of her new ink to host Ellen DeGeneres. 

"I was married for a year and a half," Cuoco said. "I had the date tattooed on my back and everything to remind me."

Now in the process of getting divorced, Cuoco decided that her original ink was a mistake and she had to cover it. Since the numbers were fairly large, it would take a fairly large new tattoo to disguise the old one. 

"People do butterflies, but why a moth?" asked DeGeneres. "What's the significance?"

"The significance is it was big enough to cover the numbers," Cuoco deadpanned. It certainly is! 

Below are a few pictures of the new moth tattoo:
