Rapper Iggy Azalea has undergone laser surgery to have a tattoo tribute to ex-boyfriend A$Ap Rocky removed from her finger.

The Fancy hitmaker split from her fellow hip-hop star in July, 2012 after a year-long romance and she subsequently had her left hand inking, bearing the words 'Live', 'Love', 'A$Ap' on the sides of her fingers, altered so as not to feature her ex's name.

Last year (13), Azalea insisted she had no plans to remove the design, saying, "I f**king loved him, I know he loved me too. I felt like he was somebody I could count on who loved me for being me, and I don't want to forget that.

"I would sacrifice a quarter of a pinky (finger) for those memories. That's why I didn't cross it out all the way, because if I'd covered it up all the way, that says I'm embarrassed. You shouldn't be ashamed of the trials of becoming an adult."

But now it appears the Australian native, who is dating Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Nick Young, has since had a change of heart after she was spotted at the Dr. Tattoff clinic in Beverly Hills on Tuesday (02Dec14).

She was later photographed with a bandage around her left pinky finger, suggesting she has begun the process to have the ink removed.
