While “Bachelor in Paradise” stars Victoria Fuller and Johnny DePhillipo’s engagement wasn’t meant to last, apparently she left Mexico and got something a bit more permanent — revealing the couples tattoos she got with new flame Greg Grippo.
Fuller, 28, took to the stage on the “Paradise” finale last night for a painful reunion with DePhillipo, 26, following the footage of their romantic engagement on the beach — and admitted the rumors were true that she was now dating “Bachelorette” alum Grippo, 29.
Not only did she confirm their relationship and her failed engagement, the reality star showed off a tiny tattoo that read “ciao” as Katie Thurston’s former suitor joined Fuller in the hot seat and revealed his matching design.
Sharing that they were “friends for a while,” Grippo said the two reconnected “weeks after Paradise” and he invited her to go out “for a drink” … in Rome.
The two got inked to commemorate their Italian sojourn, with Fuller exclaiming, “We got tattoos!” and rolling up the sleeve of her black choker-style dress by SER.O.YA ($186) when host Jesse Palmer asked if there was “love in the air” following the trip.
Grippo, for one, didn’t exactly seem on board with the reveal, replying, “Well that’s — I guess we’re gonna do that” when his girlfriend showed off her ink.
Eventually, the marketing sales rep said “screw it, right” and removed his jacket to give the audience a look at the international design on his inner arm.
“It says ‘ciao,’ it’s in Italian for ‘hi,’” he explained, while the rest of the “Bachelor in Paradise” cast gasped, rolled their eyes and face palmed in response.
“I get it’s not the best look in the world,” he admitted of their fast-moving relationship (and tats) following the cheating allegations surrounding the pair.
“Everyone can hate us if they f—king want,” Fuller said — and it seems like Bachelor Nation shared the studio audience’s opinion, delivering a variety of hilarious tweets about the new couple’s Italian ink.
“Without the episode tonight we would have never known ciao is Italian for hi, thank you Greg,” wrote one fan, while another brought Pete Davidson into the chat, tweeting, “Victoria F and Greg Grippo acting like they’re gonna last forever cuz they got tattoos? Did we just choose to forget about Pete Davidson?!”
The couple seemed to forget the fact that “ciao” has multiple meanings, which one fan pointed out.
“What #VictoriaAndGreg did *not* say but that is true, is *ciao* also means *GOODBYE!!*” the Twitter user wrote. “Yup, they both got a tattoo that said goodbye while Johnny was still thinking he & Victoria were working it out. Let that sink in Bachelor Nation!”
If indeed it doesn’t work out between the pair, Fuller is no stranger to tattoo regrets. Last year, the “Bachelor alum — who starred on Peter Weber’s season — shared on her Instagram stories that she was having a massive back tattoo removed.
“I have four tattoos — this one being the largest reminder I no longer want or need,” she wrote at the time. “Wish I could have told 19-year-old me ‘NO!’”
“A tattoo takes an hour. To get it removed will take me over a year. Make sure you remember that,” the brunette beauty added.
Perhaps Fuller should have taken her own advice in Italy.
