Courtney’s “K” tattoo
So yesterday I saw a beautiful picture of Courtney on Tumblr and fans were asking about her “k” tattoo. Did they photoshop it out? Is it gone forever? The answer is no, it was partially removed but here’s the story behind it.
“the “K: on my tummy is faded because I had bf./fiance who didn’t like seeing the ‘K: so Iwent to change it and…half on my torso to remind me that things fade and that some things like Husbands never fade..”- Courtney
The tattoo was a romantic tribute to the love of her life Kurt Cobain but after 3 or 4 years Courtney became involved with her The People Vs Larry Flynt co-star Edward Norton. The two were in love and Courtney described him as “dreamy”. Edward’s gentle manner reminded her of Kurt. They became engaged.
However, during intimate moments together, Edward didn’t like to be reminded of Courtney’s past relationship and felt uncomfortable making love to her and constantly being confronted with the “K” tattoo. Courtney made the painful decision to have it partially removed. As you can see in the second photo it still remains. Photographers have photoshopped it out in certain shoots and therein lies the confusion. I hope this was helpful.
Happy Birthday Kurt Donald Cobain!!

Happy Birthday, Kurt.
I’ve never seen this. Can anyone link me to this on YouTube?

Happy Birthday, Kurt Donald Cobain! (February 20, 1967)
