LOS ANGELES, July 30 (UPI) -- Melanie Griffith hid her Antonio Banderas tattoo with her own name earlier this week.

The 56-year-old actress was spotted in Los Angeles with a "Mel" bandage covering her "Antonio" tattoo. The name was drawn on in marker, and the patch included lines that matched up with the heart outline of the tattoo. Griffith covered the tattoo with makeup at the Taorimina Film Festival in June, and began laser removal in early July.

Griffith filed for divorce from Banderas in June, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple married in 1996, and were together for over 18 years. The split is reportedly "amicable," and they have one daughter, Stella, who turns 18 in September. The divorce is Griffith's fourth and Banderas' second; Griffith was previously married to Don Johnson (twice) and Steven Bauer, while Banderas was married to Anna Leza from 1987 to 1996.
