Nicki Minaj is finally nothing more than a faded memory to her ex-bf Safaree Samuels, who just ditched his last tattoo tribute to her … in a bed of roses.

Safaree got his forearm ink of Nicki with her tongue out covered up with the new flowery tatt. It’s pretty amazing — look closely and there’s not a trace of her left. Safaree started operation Scrub Nicki months ago … starting with his chest.

Interestingly, the artist, named Compton — posted a shot of his handiwork, and his caption included … “#SorryNicki #itsJustBusiness”

Break-ups are always hardest on the tattoo guys.
