Hayley Williams celebrated Valentine’s Day by getting a tattoo of her husband’s initials “CEG” for Chad Everett Gilbert. It is on her left hand with one letter on each finger. She stopped by Victory Tattoo in her hometown of Nashville, TN on February 14th 2015 and got inked by artist Mia Graffam. Hayley tweeted “Happy Valentine’s! A ring ain’t even permanent enough for this love ? Thx 2 my friend @miagraffam at #VictoryTattoo”
Chad and his band New Found Glory were on tour in Japan at the time, but a few weeks later he visited the same artist and got a tattoo on his thumb of “HW” for Hayley Williams and an X for his straight-edge (substance-free) lifestyle. “Got my thumb tattooed! Two things that changed my life for the better in one. By @miagraffam” he wrote.
The tattoos came shortly after they announced their engagement on December 25th, 2014. They have been in a relationship since early 2008 and were married on February 20, 2016.
