Jade Thirlwall got matching heart tattoos with her friends Samantha Donkin, Holly Robinson and Anna Sophie Barras following their September 2016 trip to Ibiza, Spain. All four pals placed the simple outline of a heart on the inside of their left ankle.
Samantha wrote on instagram “Now that our friendship tattoos have healed, we are marked for life with the most amazing memories ever! Ibiza 2016 forever, you girls are my most favourite girls in the world! ❤️ I love you!!”
Margot Robbie got two tattoos on her left foot during the filming of her movie Suicide Squad. One she gave herself and the the other was a swap with co-star Cara Delevingne.
She bought herself a tattoo gun on eBay and brought it to the movie set. A large group of cast and crew members took Margot up on her offer to get matching “SKWAD” tattoos, but Will Smith was among the few who declined. “I’m a grown-ass man,” he told ET. “Margot comes bounding into work with all of her 24-year-old glory, and it’s ‘Guys! Guys! I got a tattoo gun! I got a tattoo gun! We’re all getting tattoos!’ I was like, ‘No, we’re not.'” Although Will didn’t want a tattoo for himself, he ended up participating in the event by giving a tattoo to actor Joel Kinnamen.
He may have dodged a bullet. Most of Margot’s tattoos turned out ok, but she made a spelling mistake on her very first try, writing “SWAD” instead of the intended misspelling “SKWAD.” That unfortunate mistake is branded on the arm of an assistant Simon. Luckily she got all the rest of them right, including the “SKWAD” tattoo that she gave herself on the inside of her left foot. “When we were shooting Suicide Squad we all got Skwad tattoos,” she revealed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. “I gave myself a tattoo on my foot.”
Margot and Cara Delevingne also decided to give each other smiley faces on the bottom of their toes, which they dubbed “toemojis.” Margot gave Cara smileys on all five toes and Cara gave Margot one tattoo on the underside of her big toe. The x’s for eyes and sticking out tongue make it resemble the iconic logo of grunge rock band Nirvana.
“We did toe-mojis, we were calling them, where we’d tattoo the bottom of our toes with, like, little faces,” she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. “But the thing about tattooing the bottom of your toes is that it rubs off after a while, so we have to keep redoing them.”
Now that her tattoo talents have become known, friends have started asking her for commemorative ink. “At first I had to really beg people. And then it became a thing and people ask me now. They’re like ‘Oh I’ll get one. Yeah, that’d be funny,'” she told Colbert. At least two friends at Margot’s wedding to actor Tom Ackerley received roman numeral “XIX” (19) tattoos as a tribute to the date of the December 19th 2016 event.
She also tattooed some friends for her own birthday back in July 2016, when her tattoo gun was still new. “On my birthday, my friends were like ‘what do you want for your birthday?’ I was like ‘I just want to do more tattoos.’ When I had just started. So I tattooed a little girl holding a balloon.” She drew Jimmy Fallon a sketch of the design and even he had to admit it was pretty damn cute!
All in all, she’s given out around 50 tattoos. “I’m getting worse!” she joked “I remember my first couple I was like ‘I’m really impressed with myself’ but it’s gone downhill since then.”
Kesha commemorated her Halloween celebration with this narwhal tattoo on the outside of her right forearm. She had dressed up in a narwhal onesie which was a gift from a fan and partied with a few close friends. The next day, November 1, 2016, she got this cutesy narwhal tattoo to remind her of the fun night spent with true friends.
“haaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. had to immortalize last night,” she writes. “night night. so grateful for my beautiful magical friends. when u find the real ones hold on tight for dear life y’all. they’re what’ll keep u laughing when life throws you shitheads and douchebags.” “btw I was a NARWHAL tonight which was a present given to me by one of my darling animals on this past tour *FUN FACT*”
Kiersey Clemons and Dove Cameron got matching “X” and “O” knuckle tattoos which symbolize hugs and kisses. The two friends got the tattoos on their pinkie fingers during a trip to Las Vegas in January 2017. “What happens in Vegas stays on your body for the rest of your life,” she wrote on her instagram.
Dove Cameron got a tattoo on her pinkie finger knuckle which matches her friend Kiersey Clemons during a trip to Las Vegas in January 2017. Kiersey is a tattoo veteran, but — as far as we know — this is Dove’s first tattoo. She shared a picture of the fresh ink on instagram and captioned it “What happens in Vegas stays on your body for the rest of your life.”
The two friends got “X” and “O” for hugs and kisses. Dove has the “X” on her left pinkie and Kiersey has the matching “O” on her right pinkie.
Halsey and her friend Sean got matching Venus and Mars tattoos on their elbows in July 2015. When asked about the meaning of her planet tattoo Halsey replied:
“My friend Sean is an Aries so his ruling planet is Mars and mine is Venus and his birthday falls EXACTLY on my half birthday so we got each other’s ruling planets!”
Musician Blackbear also has a similar black and red planet tattoo as part of his left arm sleeve. Halsey shared a picture of their two tattoos together, but it seems that the matching is just a coincidence since he had his tattoo before she got hers.
Frances Bean Cobain and her friends got friendship symbol arrows tattoos.
Ash Costello has a sloppy looking heart with the letters “BF” on her right forearm which was done by a friend with a tattoo gun. We think the “artist” behind the ink is Escape The Fate lead singer Craig Mabbitt. A year earlier, Ash tagged along with Craig while he was getting a tattoo and she ended up grabbing the gun and giving him “BFF,” a heart, and a smiley face.
Ash Costello and her New Years Day bandmates got matching noose tattoos to commemorate a tour that they did in 2016. She first revealed the fresh ink a Snapchat picture, which she captioned “gonna hang forever.” She further explained the significance in an interview with Louder Noise:
My favorite piece is what we all just got — it’s a tour tattoo. It’s a noose, and everyone on the tour got it because we’re all gonna hang out forever.
