Status: Married since 2009

In a series of photos posted to Instagram in October 2019, the Jonas Brother debuted an inner forearm tattoo of wife Danielle Jonas, which was inspired by her cameo in his "Sucker" music video.

"Brand new addition to the fam. So proud of this time in our life and getting to remember this with @daniellejonas forever!" Kevin captioned the post.

The first black and white snap shows a close-up of the abstract line-drawn portrait, while the second is a still shot of Danielle's memorable music video appearance, in which she walks a group of corgis while wearing a bubble gum pink Giambattista Valli tulle ball gown.

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

Status: Split

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.

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.

Status: Split

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.

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.

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.

Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen pledged their devotion to each other in 2002 by inking their names on their bodies. After their marriage imploded, Sheen erased "Denise" from his wrist and Richards had the "Charlie" on her ankle turned into a fairy. Nice compromise.

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.
