19 Stars Who Celebrated Their Love With Tattoos
“A tattoo is something permanent when you’ve made a self-discovery, or something you’ve come to a conclusion about,” Angelina Jolie once said. One of these conclusions can be the realization of your feelings toward someone else. This is why some people, including celebrities, decide to create confirmations of love for their soulmates on their bodies. And, as the bonus demonstrates, some celebrities like teasing their fans with new tattoos to create intrigue.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
In 2023, the stars celebrated their first Valentine’s Day together as husband and wife. Lopez and Affleck decided to mark the event with tattoos. Jennifer had an infinity symbol with their names worked into the design tattooed on her ribs, and Ben has 2 crossed arrows with their initials.
The star of The Big Bang Theory, pregnant with her first child right now, has a tattoo dedicated to her partner, Tom Pelphrey. After so much trouble with romance, she believes that she has finally found the one. So Cuoco had his name tattooed on her finger. The actress’ fans noticed it in photos taken during the baby shower the couple organized in January this year.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner
The couple got their first matching tattoos back in 2018. On the inside of Joe Jonas’s wrist, the artist put the phrase “To Infinity,” while Sophie Turner’s tattoo depicts its continuation “& Beyond.” The phrase is the motto of Buzz Lightyear, a character from Toy Story. For this star couple, it symbolizes the infinity of their love, and there’s an amazing story behind it.
On the 50th birthday of his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, the basketball player decided to give her an unusual gift. Wade got her initials tattooed on his wrist, next to a miniature heart.
The drummer of Blink-182 decided to go big when he chose his tattoo. Instead of getting a design with the initials of his wife (who had also been his longtime friend) or some other miniature symbols, he got a tattoo of his wife’s eyes. This wasn’t the first tattoo the musician had dedicated to Kourtney Kardashian.
The soccer player has “99” tattooed on his little finger, which is a nod to the year he married Victoria Beckham. 1999 was also the year their first son Brooklyn was born.
Shenae Grimes and Josh Beech
The star of 90210 and her husband Josh Beech, who are now raising 3 children, have also decided to celebrate their love with tattoos. They put each other’s names behind their ears.
Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson
When the couple was in a relationship, the women had tattoos dedicated to each other: Benson had “CD” tattooed on her chest, and Delevingne got “A,” the first letter of Ashley. Benson took it a step further and got a tattoo of the word “squishy,” which is the nickname she made up for Cara.
The Canadian actor has the face of his wife Tori Spelling on his arm. They have been together for over 17 years, despite all the ups and downs in their relationship.
Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson
Like many other famous couples, the Taylor-Johnson family that has been married for over 10 years, decided that tattoos would be the best way to show love for each other. They got matching tattoos with each other’s names.
The country star has a tattoo dedicated to her husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, on her leg. Rimes got “the only one that matters” on her foot, which are the words he told her when they were on vacation together.
As an actual rock star, Urban (whose story you can read here) has a lot of tattoos on his body, and some of them are dedicated to his wife, Nicole Kidman. They have been married for over 15 years. So, on his right bicep, you can see her name.
Bonus: Taika Waititi
In February 2023, the New Zealand star posted a photo of his new tattoo, the letter “R” on his right hand, on his Instagram. “I love Rugby,” Waititi ironically captioned the photo, hinting that it had nothing to do with Rita Ora, who he recently married. However, the fans of the famous couple are convinced that the tattoo is dedicated to her.
