Getting a face tattoo is not perhaps the most advisable way to prove your love and dedication to your partner – but that hasn’t stopped Aaron Carter.

The 32-year-old former child star has had his girlfriend’s name, Melanie, inked above his right eyebrow in big, swirling letters.

Carter, now best known as the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, is no stranger to face tats – his left cheek is entirely taken up by an image of the mythical snake-haired gorgon Medusa.

His more conservative inkings include the word “love” on his neck and full sleeve tattoos on both arms.

Carter and partner Melanie are believed to have plans to get hitched, with the couple spotted looking at engagement rings recently.

Face art aside, Carter had a very turbulent time last year with family members including his twin sister Angel and older brother Nick.

A judge granted Nick a restraining order against Carter for allegedly threatening to kill Nick’s then-pregnant wife.

Carter was also banned from contacting twin sister Angel and forced to hand over his guns to the police after claims he threatened her with violence.

Nick Carter has previously released a statement explaining his decision to take out a restraining order.

He said: "In light of Aaron's increasingly alarming behaviour and his recent confessions that he harbours thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family."
