The body art was done by tattoo artist Rick Coury at John Mayer’s 45th  birthday party at the weekend.

Last week actress Rizzo posted a video tribute on her Instagram as she marked nine months since Bob’s death.

In the clip, it showed the couple participating in a couple’s challenge, the kind of videos she said they ‘had a blast making.’

‘It feels like forever and also one day all at the same time,’ she wrote in the caption.

‘I love looking back on these videos to see how much joy and silliness and fun and love we shared,’ she added. 

Rizzo said there is still a ‘palpable hole where he used to be,’ but ‘there are days that are lighter now too.’

Adding: ‘The pain and grief ebbs and flows and I still have some days that just suck. But at the same time he left behind SO much residual love and laughter that he still feels so near and present. It’s all quite an enigma.’ 

In the video, the pair participate in a couple’s push-up challenge, where the Full House star claimed to be the more protective, cleaner partner — but also the most annoying.

He also did a push-up for being the one who was interested first. Both Rizzo and Saget were tied for loving the hardest, saying ‘I love you’ first, eating the most and spending the most money. 

The couple married in 2018, after meeting through a mutual friend in 2015.

Saget was found dead in January just hours after giving a stand-up show at the Ponte Verda Concert Hall in Jacksonville, Florida.

He was found ‘tucked in bed’ when his body was discovered at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel room in Orlando. 

Authorities later revealed he died of head trauma.

A private funeral featuring some of Hollywood’s biggest comedians and Saget’s Full House stars was held at Mount Sinai memorial park in Forest Lawn Cemetery on January 14 in which former co-star John Stamos revealed he was ‘not going to say goodbye yet.

‘I imagine him out there, still on the road, doing what he loves with all his heart and humor. He’s standing on stage, killing! Another two-hour set in front of a couple hundred of the luckiest people on the planet. They’re laughing so hard they weep,’ Stamos said in his eulogy

‘I just wish he knew how much the world loved him when he was here,’ he said of his pal, continuing, ‘I spent many a night trying to convince him of how loved he really was (or maybe it was the other way around — him trying to convince me how loved he was). But that was just Bob bluster. 

‘There’s no way he thought his death would have this kind of impact. This is the kind of coverage that speaks to someone who genuinely connected with people, and not just for a moment, but for generations.’
