Evan Rachel Wood sports it discreetly on her hip and Marilyn Manson’s is on his wrist, but the couple’s matching tattoos mean one thing: love.

Wood, 19, told PEOPLE about the couple’s matching body art Tuesday night at the Nicole Miller and Cinema Society screening of her new movie, The Life Before Her Eyes.

“It’s a lightning bolt for David Bowie. And it has a black valentine heart around it,” she said. “Marilyn has a black heart on his wrist and I have a black heart. We got them on Valentine’s Day.”

Wood still has a “J” tattooed on one ankle, and her old boyfriend, Jamie Bell, has a tattoo of an “E” leftover from their relationship. But she’s definitely moved on – and she’s glad she and her new beau can share pale complexions as well.

“I was always pale,” explained Wood. “And I’m glad that I can be open about my paleness now. Because everybody always darkened me up. Especially for this movie, because I had to match Uma [Thurman, who plays an older version of Wood’s character].”

As for what makes Manson good boyfriend material, Wood said, “He’s very, very romantic. And there is nothing sexier than rock and roll.”
