Tom Schwartz Reveals if He Still Has the “Bubba” Tattoo He Got for Katie Maloney

The Vanderpump Rules cast member divulged new details on the ink he got for Katie seven years before they divorced.

Did Tom Schwartz Hope to Reconcile with Katie Maloney?

Back in 2015, Tom Schwartz got a tattoo in honor of his then-girlfriend, Katie Maloney. While vacationing in Las Vegas, the Vanderpump Rules cast member stamped his right butt cheek with the word “Bubba” — a well-known term of endearment between the couple, who tied the knot in 2016.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

Since the former pair announced their divorce in March 2022, fans may be wondering about the status of that permanent mark. During the February 8 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, host Andy Cohen inquired about the ink. 

“Do you still have your ‘Bubba’ tattoo on your ass?” Andy asked Schwartz, who was joined by his BFF and business partner Tom Sandoval for the occasion. 

“Yes, I do," Schwartz replied. 

The conversation got us wondering: Has Schwartz kept the other designs he’s gotten for his castmates over the years? 

Back in 2021, during Season 9 of Vanderpump Rules, the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-founder was challenged to a game of pingpong by Lisa Vanderpump while spending time at Villa Rosa. “If I lose, I will tattoo ‘LVP’ somewhere on my body,” Schwartz stated at the time. Lisa, in turn, offered to buy the Tom Tom partner three cases of wine if she lost the match. 

Ultimately, it was Lisa who came out on top, prompting Schwartz to get a new tattoo. “I’ve never not followed through on a bet in my life, and I feel like I don’t want to start now,” he said when they got to the tattoo parlor. “It’s good to feel the pain so I learn my lesson.”
