Johnny Depp is said to be going to extreme lengths to scrub estranged wife Amber Heard from his life. The 53-year-old actor recently stepped out with two noticeably altered tattoos.

The first, the word "slim" (allegedly a nickname for Heard) tattooed across the fingers of his left hand, was transformed into "scum". He got the tattoo shortly after their wedding in February last year.

The second one, a sultry image of Heard in a bathing suit on his right bicep, is now covered by a large dark blot of ink.

Heard, 30, filed for divorce from Depp in May citing irreconcilable differences and later accused him of domestic abuse.

She was granted a restraining order against the actor after arriving in court with bruises on her face. She cited a May 21 incident when Depp allegedly threw his phone at her as the reason.
