Some people get tattoos simply because they are beautiful, while others choose special ink designs to commemorate an important event in their life. More often than not, celebrities choose to make commemorative tattoos to celebrate a certain milestone, a grand movie, or a career boost. Some of those tattoos look incredible, while others not so much. Here are some of the quirkiest and most unusual celebrity commemorative tattoos you’ve probably never seen before.
20. The Avengers Team
Spending years playing alongside each other, the cast of Avengers felt like they’ve become a true family. Still, they wanted to take things a bit further and commemorate all the time they spent together with something special!
That’s why Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johannsson, Robert Downey Jr., and Jeremy Renner decided to make identical tattoos with the Avengers logo.
But what about Mark Ruffalo, you might ask? Well, the actor who played Hulk decided not to go with the flow as he was ‘too punk rock’ to be like everyone else. He also confessed that he didn’t like needles, so that might be the real reason.
19. The Mother of Dragons
One does not easily forget an experience as huge as taking part in the filming of Game of Thrones. Being one of the main characters from Season 1 and till the very end, Daenerys Targaryen had a complex character and an even more complex story to tell.
Emilia Clarke, whose career skyrocketed after playing Daenerys, is grateful for the whole experience. She decided to get a tattoo that would remind her of the time spent filming GoT.
Now Emilia Clarke sports three cute dragons on her right wrist that will always serve as a reminder of the amazing path of Daenerys Targaryen as well as her own.
18. Jason Momoa’s Hawaiian Ink
If you’ve seen Aquaman starring Jason Momoa you probably think that his whole torso is covered with tattoos. Well, that’s not quite true.
Khal Drogo also sported lots of tribal tattoos, but most of them were faux as well. Still, Jason Momoa has a real tattoo and it’s quite impressive!
In the Hawaiian tradition, each family has a guardian god and in Momoa’s case, it’s a shark. The tattoo on his left arm is a tribute to that family god, looking like sharp teeth of a shark.
17. The ‘SKWAD’ Tattoos
The cast of the Suicide Squad movie certainly had their fun both on and off screen. They got so close to each other that they decided to get some tattoos together!
Well, it’s Suicide Squad we’re talking about, so the actors didn’t go to a tattoo parlour, nope. Instead, they decided to make tattoos for each other!
The idea might sound a bit iffy and the end result certainly was not what everyone expected. The cast came up with the ‘SKWAD’ tattoo design and took turns tattooing each other. They say Will Smith and Margot Robbie were the most active tattoo artists out of the whole cast.
16. The Spider-Man Tattoo
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is a relatively new addition to the Marvel Universe in general and the Avengers team in particular, but he’s already gathered a huge following of his own.
Needless to say, his co-stars adore him just as much! To commemorate this phase of his life, Tom Holland decided to make a Spider-Man tattoo on the bottom of his foot.
As the actor later confessed, it was one of the most painful experiences in his life. Still, he has no regrets!
15. Megan Fox and the Tattoo that Vanished
Megan Fox is a proud owner of several spectacular tattoos, most of which she shows off wearing gorgeous dresses to various events.
Still, you might have noticed that one of her tattoos disappeared recently – the one depicting Marilyn Monroe on her right arm. Megan Fox decided that the conflicted life of the actress wasn’t exactly a good charm, so she decided to remove the image.
Another iconic tattoo of hers depicts a verse from William Shakespeare’s sonnet, reading: “We will all laugh at gilded butterflies.”
14. The Lord of the Rings Gang
The Lord of the Rings trilogy was a phenomenal movie series that has changed the movie industry forever. To pay homage to J. R. R. Tolkien’s book, Peter Jackson gathered a stellar cast of actors who got incredibly close during the filming of the movies.
To celebrate the LOTR movies and their friendship, nine of the main actors went together to the tattoo parlour and got matching tattoos saying ‘nine’.
Of course, it’s not just some ordinary word – their ‘nine’ was spelled in the Elvish language created by Tolkien himself!
13. Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams
The Stark sisters have definitely bonded on set, feeling like real relatives both on screen and in real life. No wonder they decided to commemorate their friendship!
First, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams wanted to wait till the end of Game of Thrones and celebrate the final season with a gorgeous ink. But they weren’t sure their characters would survive that long, so they came up with a different idea.
Both ladies decided to make a tattoo with some special numbers – ‘07.08.09’. This was the day when they both were cast to play in Game of Thrones and it has changed their lives forever.
12. Ariana Grande’s Bee
Like many celebs before her, Ariana Grande was quick to make lots of matching tattoos with Pete Davidson, whom she later left.
There was also the case of a Japanese hieroglyph tattoo that was supposed to mean something really cool, but there was a translation mistake and it turned out meaning ‘a small grill’.
Ariana Grande also sports a cute little bumble bee behind her ear. She got it as a tribute to the Manchester bombing that happened during her concert four years ago.
11. Rihanna’s Ink
The singer-songwriter has been in love with tattoos for quite some time now. Still, she’s not one of those people who would dedicate her body art to others, even the people she loves.
Most of her tattoos are unique and artsy. On her ankle, you can an ink saying ‘1988’ – that is the year she was born. What a way to celebrate your own life and path!
On her hand you can see a beautiful henna-style tattoo design – it’s one of the more recent cover-ups performed by a tattoo artist she befriended many years ago.
10. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is famous not only for her amazing performances both on stage and in real life but also for all the tattoos she wears on her body.
Lady Gaga’s tattoos are truly unique! One of her latest tattoos is a kind of tribute to herself and her amazing career.
She got a tattoo of four notes in a very simple, straightforward style. If you can read the music notes, then you already know that the tattoo reads ‘GAGA’ when translated into letters.
9. Bella Hadid
Being a supermodel that often has to showcase her body, Bella Hadid doesn’t have too many tattoos. Still, there is one cute little ink that seems to be a very precious memento for her.
If you look closer you will notice a small tattoo on Bella Hadid’s ankle in a form of two wings. Fans believe it was done to commemorate the start of her career at Victoria’s Secret.
Bella Hadid had her first-ever Victoria’s Secret show back in 2016 and, according to fans, the winged tattoo appeared later the next year. As you might already know, Victoria’s Secret refers to its models as ‘angels’, so the tattoo is quite fitting.
8. 13 Reasons Why Cast Members
13 Reasons Why might be a tad bit controversial, but the show is getting more and more attention with each season. Naturally, the cast made friends with each other, but that’s not the reason why they decided to get matching tattoos!
Alisha Boe, Tommy Dorfman, and Selena Gomez, the show’s executive producer, chose an unusual tattoo design – a semicolon.
It wasn’t a random choice or something they made on a whim – this tattoo actually has a deeper meaning! Project Semicolon is an organization that deals with suicide prevention and does its best to raise awareness about various mental health issues. That’s why the actors chose this tattoo!
7. Hailey Baldwin’s and Kendall Jenner’s Broken Hearts
Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin have known each other for ages, so it doesn’t really come as a surprise that they would want to get some matching tattoos.
They chose a cute design reminiscent of those sweet friendship necklaces we used to wear back in the day. Each of them had half a heart and together they were a perfect match for each other.
Hailey Baldwin went for a red-coloured tattoo, while Kendall Jenner chose to make a white one. It’s very elegant!
6. The Hush Tattoos
Not only did the cast of Pretty Little Liars get really close during the shooting, but they also became good friends off set.
The show meant a lot to everyone, that’s why the women decided to commemorate the last season’s finale with a cute little matching tattoo.
You’ve seen them do their classy ‘shh’ pose in the opening scene of the show – that’s the exact fingers actresses chose for their tattoos! Actresses got the first letter of their character’s name on their forefingers.
5. The Yummy Tattoo of Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus is well-known for her extraordinary style and the love to make a performance out of everything. Naturally, she likes flashy tattoos as well!
When Chris Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus finally tied the knot, the couple decided to create matching tattoos to commemorate their new life together.
You might get a little bit surprised with their design choice because they went for a quirky little ink depicting Vegemite – a certain bread spread popular in Australia. That is some serious commitment!
4. Demi Lovato’s Great Grandmother
It’s not very often celebrities choose to depict actual people on themselves. But that’s not the case with Demi Lovato because she wanted to commemorate the life of her beloved great grandmother by making a tattoo.
She chose a photo of her great granny when she was still young – around the same age as Demi Lovato when she was getting the tattoo.
Demi Lovato’s ink looks gorgeous and we must admit it’s one of the most meaningful tattoos on the list!
3. The Illustrated Man
David Beckham is certainly no stranger to tattoos, just look at the man! He’s covered with all kinds of inks from head to toe.
Most of his tattoo inspirations come from his family and beloved wife and ex-Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, whom he had been married to for over 20 years.
His other tattoos commemorate his love of football and the long-lasting career at Manchester United.
2. A Treasure Trove of Unique Tattoos
Johnny Depp is a unique man, so naturally, he sports some of the most unusual tattoos with an interesting backstory.
Back in the day when he and Winona Ryder were newly-weds, Johnny Depp commemorated their marriage by getting a tattoo of his wife’s name. As we all know, their marriage came to an end and the actor decided to change that tattoo.
Now it says ‘Wino Forever’ instead of ‘Winona Forever’ – the remake was quite effortless with this one! Johnny Depp also has a sparrow tattooed on his forearm as a tribute to his long-lasting role as Jack Sparrow.
1.The Dream Couple
John Legend’s and Chrissy Teigen’s marriage has become our relationship goal for many reasons, and these matching tattoos are adding one more to the list of awesome things they do together.
Being the unofficial King and Queen of social media, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend posted their new tattoos on Instagram right after they got them, sharing their happiness with the followers.
Their tattoo is elegant and sweet – it’s an uninterrupted line of text in lower-case letters that contains both of their names and the names of their children.
