See the stars who've professed their undying love with tattoos – and some who've had them removed after a breakup
ASHLEY & CARA
Status: Loved Up!
Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson are clearly getting serious and fans are taking notice. The pair has been linked since August 2018, but only confirmed their relationship (after a whole year of dating!) in June 2019. Now they’re allegedly immortalizing it in ink. Benson posted a photo showing off a ‘CD’ tattoo on Instagram, which, coincidentally, are her girlfriend’s initials. Eagle-eyed fans also spotted a similarly placed ‘A’ tattoo on Delevingne’s ribcage when she stepped out in a see-through gown at the 2019 TrevorLIVE New York Gala. Could it all be a crazy coincidence?! Neither of the women have confirmed that the tattoos are their initials, but that won’t stop the speculation.
ARIANA & PETE
Just weeks after going public with his relationship with Ariana Grande, SNL funnyman Pete Davidson got two inspired new tattoos: a black bunny ear mask — which looks similar to the accessory worn by Grande on the Dangerous Woman album cover — behind his ear, and the singer’s initials on his hand. In the weeks following — before and after their engagement — they each got many more tats honoring each other. But on Oct. 14, 2018, PEOPLE confirmed that they’d called off their engagement — one week after Davidson tweaked one of his tattoos.
CHRIS & DAKOTA
Status: Seriously dating
In September 2018, über-private couple Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson were just spotted with brand-new matching infinity symbol tattoos, and they even debuted their new ink just a day apart from one another (she at the Venice Film Festival, he at a party in L.A.).
What makes the stars’ new tatts even more noticeably coordinating is the fact that they both have double “XX” markings inside the infinity symbol.
ZAYN & GIGI
In case their sweet social media displays of affections didn’t tip you off, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik really, really loved each other. In fact, the former One Direction member was at one time so fond of his supermodel-girlfriend that he allegedly got a tattoo of her eyes on his chest — if you believe the Internet, of course. Their on-again, off-again status seemed to be off, though, as of early 2019.
OFFSET & CARDI B
Offset — who proposed to the “Bodak Yellow” singer onstage at Power 99’s Powerhouse concert in October 2017 — got some new ink on his neck in 2018 to show his commitment to Cardi B amid cheating allegations against the Migos rapper.
OFFSET & CARDI B
He likes it like that! Offset revealed to fans that Cardi B got some tributary ink of her own. The Migos rapper posted a photo of his wife showing off her flexibility and a tattoo of his name that she got on the back of her thigh.
JHENÉ & BIG SEAN
After dating Big Sean for about a year, Jhené Aiko immortalized her love for the rapper by getting his portrait tattooed right above her elbow. The fresh ink came a week after she and ex-husband Dot da Genius finalized their divorce. However, as of May 2018, she and Big Sean found themselves battling relationship rumors — and they’ve been quiet since.
TOM & TAYLOR
Status: Split in 2016
The pair came together to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend in Rhode Island with a star-studded group of friends. Beach PDA aside, it was Tom Hiddleston’s “I [heart] T.S.” tank top and accompanying triceps tattoo (real or fake? that’s TBD) of a heart with a “T” in the middle that got us talking.
JOHNNY & AMBER
BENJI & CAMERON
DAVID & VICTORIA
Status: Married 20 years
Paws off, people, they’re taken! David Beckham has his lady’s name emblazoned on the front of his hand …
DAVID & VICTORIA
… while his wife, Victoria, has his initials, “DB,” inked in script on her wrist.
ZAYN & PERRIE
Status: Split in 2015
Besides putting a ring on ex-fiancée Perrie Edwards’s finger in 2013, One Direction’s Zayn Malik found another way of making things permanent: He had the Little Mix singer’s image drawn onto his right arm.
AMBER & WIZ
That smiling face you see on Amber Rose’s arm is her ex, rapper Wiz Khalifa, whom she accused of cheating on her. In 2017, the mother of one opted to cover up a tattoo of the rapper’s face. Where Khalifa’s ink portrait once featured is now a tattoo of what appears to be rocker Slash.
KELLY & MARK
Status: Married 23 years
This one’s a keeper! In 2010, Live with Kelly and Ryan host Kelly Ripa had her husband Mark Consuelos’s last name written on her left wrist in black cursive.
DEAN & TORI
Status Married 13 years
So much ink, so little skin! Though times have been rocky for the reality TV couple, signs of their union are all over their bodies. Dean McDermott has wife Tori Spelling’s image on his arm, she has their wedding vows on her rib cage, and he has “Tori’s” tattooed, er, “down there,” she revealed on their show True Tori.
MEGAN & BRIAN
MELANIE & ANTONIO
NICK & MARIAH
TIM & FAITH
KEITH & NICOLE
Status: Married 13 years
At the center of Keith Urban’s elaborate arm art is the first name of his wife Nicole Kidman. We can’t think of anyone better for him to idolize.
DENISE & CHARLIE
JOHNNY & WINONA
Status: Split in 1993
Cheers to Johnny Depp’s sense of humor! The actor famously altered his “Winona Forever” tattoo to “Wino Forever” – in a nod to his pastime, drinking wine – when they split in the ’90s.
ANGELINA & BILLY BOB
Vials of blood. Exteme PDA. The actress professed her love for actor Billy Bob Thornton in a variety of ways, but none was more public than etching his name onto her left arm. After their split in 2003, Jolie removed the tattoo and it has since been replaced with the coordinates of her children’s birthplaces.
