Carl Woods showcased some of his tattoos in a recent photo amid reports that his ex-partner Katie Price has been growing close to former MAFS cast member JJ Slater
Carl Woods has seemingly had an apparent tattoo tribute to his ex-partner Katie Price on his chest altered, with the inking now looking a little different to how it originally did.
The former reality TV star, 34, is believed to no longer be in a relationship with Katie, 45, whom he was first romantically linked in 2020. During their on-and-off relationship, Carl got tattoo tributes to the former glamour model on occasion. This included getting an apparent tribute on his chest last year. It showed a figure, believed to represent Katie, holding up her middle finger. It however appears to have since been altered, based on a photo that has been shared this week.
Carl – who once appeared on Love Island, before winning ITV2’s Killer Camp in 2019 – took to Instagram this weekend to share a photo of himself, as his ex Katie was spotted on a cosy date with her new love interest JJ.
Taking to his Instagram account over the weekend, Carl showcased some of his tattoos in the photo as he posed shirtless in a bedroom. He wrote in the caption of the post: “I want to thank me for believing in me.” The post featured Indila’s song Tourner Dans Le Vide. It has amassed more than 3,000 likes on the platform since it was uploaded to Carl’s account recently.
The photo suggests that at some point Carl has updated the tattoo that he got last year. The figure now seems to be a harlequin or a jester, with what appears to be mask having been inked over the face of the character on his chest. Fans were quick to spot the updated ink.
“Is that his Katie price tattoo covered? good riddance if it is,” one fan wrote underneath Carl’s latest Instagram post, with another replying: “I think so! And transformed into a [clown emoji].” A third pleaded with Carl: “For once in your life, listen to what everybody is telling you and stay away from Katie Price.”
When he first got the inking from G.O.I Tattoo Studio in Gloucester, it was reported that it represented a “Day of the Dead girl” which had been “made to look similar” to Katie. The tattoo is now accompanied by other designs around it, including one that references the city Las Vegas.
It comes amid the suggestion that Katie has been growing close to Married at First Sight UK (MAFS) star JJ Slater, 31. It was claimed last month that she is “really into him,” with the pair said to have met and been texting “constantly”. They were seen cuddled up in a photo published this week. Katie and JJ were reportedly spotted out in Newcastle last weekend. A source told the Mirror: “They sat together for at least an hour. They looked very cosy together, especially when she rested her arm on his shoulder.”
Katie and Carl were understood to have been in an on-and-off relationship since first getting together in 2020. They were believed to have split up again in November last year but sparked reconcilation rumours the following month when they were seen together. Katie however described herself as “single” in footage from a New Year’s Eve party.
