Kaley Cuoco stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday and got candid about her divorce from Ryan Sweeting, which kicked off a “rough” year for the Big Bang Theory actress. But she also poked some fun at an ill-advised tattoo: her wedding date.

“Don’t tattoo wedding date, I know, I know,” Cuoco said, playfully cringing.

Her solution was to get some fresh new ink of a moth to cover it up. But why a moth?

“The significance is it was big enough to cover the numbers,” Cuoco joked.

The actress also got serious and admitted that she’s in a “much better place now” after a period of being in the news for her split from Sweeting.

“Last year was very bizarre and we all go through really weird ups and downs. And sometimes I’m a little bit more seen, and everyone goes through that stuff,” Cuoco said. “I already feel like 2016 is going to be a much better year than 2015. It’s been rough, but things are going good.”
