When a celebrity gets a new tattoo, Pinterest boards are flooded with the inspiration pictures, and many swarm to the tattoo shop to get their take on it. And we get it. They’re undeniably cool. Celebrities somehow think of the coolest tattoo ideas like Jennifer Aniston’s simple “11:11” tattoo and Jessica Alba’s constellation tattoo, to name a few. But the only thing we love more than celebrity tattoos is celebrity couple tattoos.
Couples getting matching tattoos has grown wildly popular in the past decade, and celebrity couples love partaking in the trend as well. And for those that don’t exactly want to go into a fully matching tattoo, they typically opt for getting their partner’s name tattooed on them. Heather Rae Young got a name tattoo for her new husband Tarek El Moussa, Matt Damon got one for his daughters, and the list goes on. But what about the couples that decide to go down the matching tattoo avenue?
Some do humongous forearm tattoos to show their love, while some choose to go more on the dainty side. But either way, we’re obsessed and want to know every detail. From sentimental tattoos to silly tattoos of Vegemite, check out some of our favorite celebrity couples’ matching tattoos below.

Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck
To celebrate their first Valentine’s Day as a married couple, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got matching tattoos together. Showing off their new ink on Instagram, it looks like Lopez’s new tattoo is of an infinity sign with the names “Jennifer” and “Ben” written in cursive and an arrow also going right through it. Affleck’s ink has a similar vibe with two arrows crossing one another with the letters “J” and “B” written around them. “Commitment ♾️,” Lopez wrote in the caption. “Happy Valentine’s Day my love 🤍.”
Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas
On Jan 2023, Priyanka Chopra revealed she and Nick Jonas have super sweet tattoos commemorating their engagement. She said to British Vogue, “I have a check and a box behind my ears. My husband has them on his arms because when he proposed, he asked me, that I checked all his boxes, and would I check another one?”
Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have always been one of the cutest couples in the business, and their matching tattoos only prove it more. John has a stunning tattoo reading, “Chrissy, Luna, Miles.” And Chrissy has a matching one that says, “John, Luna, Miles.” Cue the ‘awws!’
Beyoncé & Jay Z
You may not have expected it, but Beyoncé and Jay-Z also have some meaningful matching tattoos. On their ninth wedding anniversary, one of our favorite celebrity couples decided to get the Roman numeral for four “IV” tattooed on their fingers. Now, why the number four? Well, they were both born on the fourth day of their birth months and they got married on April 4th. Beyonce later added a spin to her four tattoo.
Cara Delevingne & Ashley Benson
Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson got together back in 2018 and quickly became one of Hollywood’s favorite “It” couples. They met while working on the film Her Smell, and sparks flew immediately. Benson ended up getting Cara’s initials, “CD,” as you can see in this Instagram post. And Cara got Ashley’s first initial, “A,” tattooed on her body. While not the typical matching tattoo, it’s quite sweet. However, the couple split in 2020.
Victoria & David Beckham
On Victoria and David Beckham’s sixth wedding anniversary, they decided to get matching tattoos of a phrase that’s very personal to them. They got the Hebrew phrase “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” Despite the couple going strong over two decades later, Victoria actually ended up removing hers.
Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s relationship was one of the rockiest, having a decade-long on-and-off relationship. But we still loved them, and we loved the matching tattoos they got. In 2016, they got matching Vegemite tattoos in honor of Hemsworth’s home country, Australia. Along with that, they have a matching Theodore Roosevelt quote tattooed, as Hemsworth showed on in a now-deleted Instagram post. But don’t worry, E! Online still has some pictures. The couple ended up divorcing in 2020, but neither has gotten their ink removed.
Drake & Rihanna
While their relationship status was a bit of a question mark, fans figured out that they had matching camouflage sharks inked on themselves. They were allegedly an item in 2016, but neither of them has commented on it. Rihanna covered up the tattoo with another intricately designed piece.
Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner
A month after Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner tied the knot in 2019, their precious pup died after getting into a car accident. To commemorate their beloved pet, they got matching tattoos of him on their forearms. Turner shared it on her Instagram story, but luckily this Twitter user got a good screenshot of the tattoo. They also got matching Toy Story-themed tattoos, and we’re obsessed with how they turned out.
Stephen & Ayesha Curry
Another couple that has multiple matching tattoos is one of our favorites: Stephen and Ayesha Curry! The first one is of a greater than and less than symbol on their arms, which they said was a reminder to stay in the present. They also have matching tattoos of the animals they relate their children to. They have a unicorn for their eldest daughter, Riley, a butterfly for their daughter, Ryan, and a wolf for their son, Canon. They posted the final results on Ayesha’s Instagram.
Katy Perry & Russell Brand
Back in 2010, Katy Perry and her then-husband Russell Brand were on everyone’s minds, especially since the relationship was so tumultuous. In one of their prime moments, they got matching arm tattoos that read “Go with the flow” in Sanskrit. This was incredibly significant for them since Brand proposed to Perry in India and they got married there. They officially split in 2012, and Brand got the tattoo removed soon after.
Eva Longoria & Tony Parker
Eva Longoria and her ex-husband Tony Parker actually had two matching tattoos together. They both the Roman numerals of their wedding date July 7, 2007, and the number “Nine” which is Parker’s jersey number. They ended up divorcing in 2011, and Longoria got the tattoos removed soon after.
Ellie Goulding & Dougie Poynter
Ellie Goulding and her then-boyfriend, Dougie Poynter, got matching skulls and crossbones tattooed on their middle fingers back in the day. While they’ve never commented on the significance, there’s no denying the tattoo looks quite stunning. While the original Instagram photo has been deleted, you can still see it in some of Goulding’s notorious selfies. The couple ended up splitting in 2015, soon after they got the tattoos done.
