This sounds as rash and ill-advised as the infamous head-butt.

Grappling with the aftermath of a dramatic and public breakup, it seems Chad Johnson decided to make a correspondingly dramatic and public move:  According to TMZ, he had an image of estranged wife Evelyn Lozada's face tattooed on his right leg, and, to eliminate any question about who's being depicted, it says "Eve" right under it. The new ink was, of course, designed for public consumption. It went straight to Twitter, even being featured as his profile picture.

Johnson posted the photo on his Twitter page today ... the image is his new profile pic featured at the top of his page. It's unclear if the tat is real ... or of the temporary variety. Sources tell us Chad got the work done this past weekend.

Either way, Chad may not be getting his money's worth from the ink -- sources close to Evelyn say she still feels strongly about divorcing Johnson ...

As we previously reported, Evelyn filed for divorce last month ... three days after Chad allegedly headbutted her during a heated argument.

A rep for Chad had no comment on the story…

Everyone with internet access knows Johnson's romantic relationship with the Basketball Wives star is over, but doesn't he have any friends around who could have encouraged him to think this one over? It sounds as rash and ill-advised as the infamous head-butt that was behind the breakup, and we can only hope it's temporary.
