The Italian actress got a tattoo of a dagger dripping with blood on her foot and posted two pictures to Instagram of the inking with a message directed at her fellow #MeToo pioneer.
"Bye bye @rosemcgowan," the caption to the first image read. While the second caption was even more ominous, "Significato: vendetta consumata," which roughly translates to "Meaning: revenge consumed" in Italian.
The weekend postings follow an apology posted by McGowan on Thursday, where she admitted to unintentionally misrepresenting "a number of facts" surrounding Argento's sex abuse scandal involving an underage boy.
Argento responded to her tweet: "Although I am grateful to @rosemcgowan for her full apology following her groundless allegations about me. If she had issued it earlier, I may have kept my job on X-Factor and avoided the constant accusations of paedophilia which I have been subjected to in real-life and online."

She followed with another message, writing: "Now go on, live your life and stop hurting other people, will you Rose? Best wishes."
The Twitter exchange came after Argento, on September 17, said she was considering legal action against the fellow Harvey Weinstein accuser if McGowan didn't take back what she considered "horrendous lies" made about her in a lengthy statement in August. After giving her 24 hours Argento said she was going ahead with her lawsuit. McGowan then issued an apology over a week later.
The New York Times reported over the summer that Argento arranged to pay Bennett, who is 20 years her junior, $380,000 over 18 months. In documents obtained by the NYT, Bennett, a young actor and musician, claimed Argento had sexually assaulted him in a Southern California hotel room in 2013 when he was 17 and she was 37. (The age of consent in California is 18.)
The documents also claimed that in result of the "sexual battery" the young star faced emotional trauma which affected his mental health. Bennett, through legal representatives. In addition, the documents said Argento asked to take a number of photos with Bennett on the day of the alleged assault. One image of the two in bed is in the possession of both TMZ and the NYT. There is still an Instagram photo of Argento and Bennett from that same day -- May 9, 2013 -- as well as Argento "waiting" for Bennett in the Marina Del Rey harbor on the actress' Instagram account.
Argento since denied his account, saying she was "deeply shocked and hurt by having read news that is absolutely false. I have never had any sexual relationship with Bennett."
After a text message was released reading, "The horny kid jumped me ... I had sex with him it felt weird," her lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, told TMZ Bennett sexually assaulted and then extorted Argento. "Asia chose at the time not to prosecute Bennett for sexually attacking her," her lawyer added.
"Asia does not intend to prosecute Bennett for his conduct and recognizes that his unfortunate past, his stalled acting career, and a lawsuit against his own parents for allegedly misappropriating more than a million and a half dollars from his account might explain his desperation to seek money from Asia and Bourdain for this falsely alleged incident that took place more than 5 years ago."
