Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley: Re-Inked and Re-Linked? (PHOTOS)

Now this is just…curious. Estranged couple Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley—who announced their split in September after three years of marriage—were spotted together in the wee hours of Sunday morning at the Tattoo Mania tattoo parlour on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, after reportedly spending a tipsy evening together at Madeo and the Chateau Marmont. The pair emerged from the needle emporium at approximately 2 a.m., sporting matching bandage with who knows what kind of deign underneath.

Did the pair have a few drinks, decide to hook back up and make it official with matching ink? Or were there a couple of “A.L. + D.W. TLA” designs that needed covering up?
