14 Celebrities Who Have Matching Tattoos With a Special Meaning
Nowadays, tattoos are an art form in their own right. Long queues form in waiting to see skilled tattoo artists, just like they did for talented portrait painters a couple of centuries ago. Celebrities are also among tattoo enthusiasts. Some strive to ink every inch of their bodies, some get tattoos only for a special occasion, and some get them together with a friend. Today we’re going to tell you about some celebs who have opted for matching tattoos.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin Bieber
The Bieber couple has one matching tattoo. After the release of the single Peaches, Justin got a small design of a peach tattooed on his neck. Hailey supported her husband and got the exact same tattoo by celebrity artist Doctor Woo. A picture of the ripe fruit can now be seen on Baldwin’s left arm.
Selena Gomez and Nicola Peltz Beckham
Newly minted best friends Selena Gomez and Nicola Peltz Beckham have “legitimized” their relationship with matching tattoos. The girls recently got the same inscription on their arms. The word “Angel,” written in cursive, now adorns both celebs’ forearms. Selena is rumored to be dating Nicola’s brother, so the two families could really become one.
Selena Gomez and Cara Delevingne
For Selena, matching tattoos have always been a fond tradition. On the singer’s back, there’s a tattoo of a rose, which is suspiciously similar to Cara Delevingne’s tattoo. The girls visited a tattoo artist in New York together to immortalize their friendship. In an interview, Gomez explained that she gets matching tattoos with people she loves: “I have multiple tattoos with people who have honestly left a significant mark on my life. I have one with Julia Michaels, my mom, and my best friends.”
Brooke Shields and Rowan Francis
Actress Brooke Shields went to a tattoo parlor together with her daughter to get matching tattoos. The occasion was Rowan Francis’ successful graduation from high school. The design of a ladybug now adorns the mother’s wrist and the daughter’s ankle. Shields immediately showed off the new ink to her Instagram followers, accompanying the photo with a touching message: “A special graduation gift and memory with my girl. I’m so proud of you, I love you more than words can say.”
Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker
Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker share a love of music and tattoos. The friends decided to combine these two passions and got matching tattoos ahead of Kelly’s new album release, which, as the tattoo reads, is called Born with Horns. Barker got involved in this venture not only as a friend but also as an executive producer.
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly
If Machine Gun Kelly has a tattoo with a friend, he’s sure to find room for a matching tattoo with the woman he loves, actress Megan Fox. The musician’s and his girlfriend’s hands are adorned with voodoo dolls. The lovers visited a tattoo parlor together for a special occasion — on Megan’s birthday. For these tattoos, the couple chose ring fingers, on which wedding rings are usually worn.
Kaley Cuoco and Zosia Mamet
Kaley and Zosia became friends on set. To immortalize their love for each other, the actresses visited a tattoo artist several times. They now have a paper airplane design on their legs, as it was working on the show The Flight Attendant that brought them so close together.
They also got the word “Boop” tattooed on their arms for a reason. Cuoco explained that that’s how she and Mamet have been teasing each other since the early days of filming: “It became a thing, and then we did it all the time. Now people are booping each other. I think we’re causing a major stir.”
The cast of the TV series Ms. Marvel
The cast of the series Ms. Marvel has all got matching tattoos depicting the main character’s trademark lightning bolt. Actresses Lauren Marsden and Yasmeen Fletcher showed off the artist’s work and confirmed that about a dozen crew members have the same tattoo.
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott
Kylie and Travis have matching butterfly tattoos. Jenner cleared up the mystery, explaining the significance of this insect to their family: “When Travis and I first got together, we got matching little butterfly tattoos. So a butterfly is a symbol of our relationship and Stormi.”
The couple doesn’t limit themselves to tattoos. Kylie wears a butterfly pendant, and together with their daughter Stormi, they dressed up as butterflies for Halloween. What’s more, the little girl’s bedroom is also decorated with butterflies.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
Chrissy and John got matching tattoos in honor of their family. They both have the names of their children and their beloved partner tattooed on their arms. In 2020, the couple experienced a terrible loss. Twenty weeks into her pregnancy, Chrissy suffered a partial placenta abruption. The couple wears the name of their unborn son Jack on their wrists in the form of a tattoo.
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky
Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth are, without a doubt, a power couple. The stars have many tattoos of their own, and they’ve found a place for matching ones too. On their forearms, the celebs have five characters of the runic alphabet. Each of them represents the first letter of the names of the couple and their three children — India, Tristan, and Sasha.
Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae El Moussa
The TV stars got matching tattoos after their wedding. Tarek and Heather decided to immortalize this special day and got the date of the ceremony tattooed on their arms. The celebrity realtor’s version of the tattoo is slightly different from that of his wife. To the date of their wedding, Tarek added the birthdays of his children from his previous relationship with Christina Hall.
The cast of The Lord of the Rings
The cast of the legendary Lord of the Rings films got matching tattoos in Elvish. The actors’ bodies are adorned with the number nine, written in the language invented by Tolkien. Viggo Mortensen, who plays Aragorn, recalls the time it happened: “We all got the same one — the word ‘nine’ in Elvish — because that’s what we are, nine. We did all meet one morning and it was an interesting event, and I enjoyed it. Half a day. Actually, everyone showed up.”
Madonna and her son David Banda
In 2020, Madonna turned 62 and got her first tattoo. Since then, new works of art have been regularly appearing on her body. And one of these tattoos is a matching one that the star got with her adopted son David Banda. On their wrists, they have the Tree of Life, a mystical symbol with special significance for followers of the Kabbalah.
