One Bachelor In Paradise star appears to wear more than his heart on his sleeve.
Tattooed hunk Alex Mckay has revealed he has a large design on his arm to mark his rejection on Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette in 2019.
During a video on the franchise’s official Instagram page, the 26-year-old showed off a portrait of Angie, 30, bleeding while holding a rose.

Alex was left heartbroken when he failed to receive a rose from Angie after making it to the final six during last year’s season of The Bachelorette.
‘This arm is a picture of Angie holding a rose and her hand is bleeding, because I didn’t get that final rose,’ he explained to the camera.
Alex admitted he got his first tattoo when he was 17-years-old because he ‘illegally walked into a tattoo parlour’.

‘I certainly gave it my all and learnt some swell little lessons about myself/ dating/ bro code/ manipulators and love… even if it wasn’t my forever love,’ she wrote.
