The Valentine's Day actress has had laser surgery to remove the daisy and ladybird design she had inked on the back of her neck three years ago, reported Daily Mail online.
The faded etching was only just visible as she arrived at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival Party in LA with her hair tied in an up-do.
Her stylish dress and elaborate shoes were eye catching but keen red carpet observers were fixated on the disappearing mark.
Of course, Jessica is not the first celebrity to suffer tattoo regret.
Peter Andre recently started having the removal treatment after getting his ex wife Katie Price's name inked on his wedding finger.
Price settled for a big cross crudely inked over her 'Pete' wrist tattoo during her post-break up trip to Ibiza.
There's no doubt Cheryl Cole is lamenting her decision to have 'Mrs Cole' inked on the back of her neck following her separation from husband Ashley Cole.
The most famous celebrity example of tattoo remorse is Johnny Depp, who had 'Winona Forever' etched into his arm during his relationship with the actress. After they split, he had the 'na' removed, leaving it to read 'Wino Forever'.
