Nick Cannon has spent a fortune in ink all in an effort to erase his ex-wife Mariah Carey‘s name from his back.

Cannon shared a pic of his new massive back tattoo which covers up his old Mariah tattoo.

Cannon hit up a Covina, CA parlor and invested 30 painful hours in the chair. Cannon’s business partner, Pep Williams, chronicled the process in photographs, which will appear in Urban Ink magazine later this month. As for the new tat … it features a cherub on each side of the cross (representing his kids). The text below reads, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” h/t tmz

Is the tattoo’s message possibly a reference to his failed marriage to the song bird?
