The "Desperate Housewives" beauty split from the basketball star in 2010 after three years of marriage, and their divorce was finalized last year.

Longoria paid a visit to the offices of Dr. Tattoff, a chain of tattoo removal clinics, to erase the "NINE" ink, which references Parker's jersey number for the San Antonio Spurs. The tattoo appears on the back of Longoria's neck.
