Latley, Ricky has been missing Marnie while she has been away in Greece filming for the new series of Geordie Shore.
Over the weekend, he was finally reunited with his girlfriend as he flew out to see her while she took a break from her filming schedule. And loving every minute of their romantic reunion, Ricky couldn't resist adding his girlfriend's initial to his collection of body ink.
Now that's a pretty big commitment, no?
Showing off his new tattoo on Snapchat, Ricky was pictured with the initial 'M' and a heart alongside it etched onto his skin, just above his wrist.
The former TOWIE star (Ricky announced he was taking a break for the show earlier this month), has openly said he thinks Geordie Marnie could be 'The One' for him and his latest inking certainly seems to be evidence of that.
We wonder what Marnie makes of his new tattoo?
There's no denying Ricky is pretty besotted with his reality star love, just last week the Essex boy told fans he "couldn't be happier" to see Marnie again after spending three weeks apart.
He had originally said saying goodbye to her when she first left for Greece was the "hardest thing" he has had to do.
Over the weekend, the couple caught up with another while enjoying a quick break in Athens.
While there, Ricky shared plenty of Snapchats of himself and his girlfriend with fans, including a cute photo of Marnie planting a kiss on his cheek.
Ricky and Marnie have been dating since January earlier this year. The pair first met during an NTAs after-party in London and since then their relationship has gone from strength to strength.
Both Ricky and Marnie are often spotted gushing about each other on social media and it has been suggested the pair's romance did play a part in Ricky's decision to leave The Only Way Is Essex.
Despite dating Ricky, Marnie wouldn't have been allowed to film for the ITVBe show due to her Geordie Shore commitments. Fans then speculated that Ricky would be joining Marnie on Geordie Shore, but a rep for the star has insisted this is "absolutely not true".
Shame! We would have loved to have seen Marnie and her beau onscreen!
