You Had No Idea These Celebs Were THIS Close

Split-heart necklaces, matching outfits, the number-one slot in your MySpace Top 8 — there are plenty of ways to show your loyalty to your best bud. Nothing is a more permanent declaration, though, than a tattoo. After all, nothing screams BFFL (best friends for life) quite like getting IFL (inked for life).

We've rounded up a host of celebs who clearly agree. Some of the tattoos are on the sentimental side; others are more humorous — but each is a testament to lasting friendship. Curious to see which stars have gone under the gun for their besties? Click through the slides ahead to find out. Who knows? It might just inspire you and your best pal to follow suit.

They got matching arrows that point outward toward the other brother. But the real question is: Does Kevin feel left out?

While the meaning behind the ghost tattoo is unknown (perhaps a nod to Duff's role in Casper Meets Wendy?), the script is crystal-clear: ride or die.

The two models got teeny-tiny broken hearts etched onto their fingers in white (Jenner) and red (Baldwin) ink. But why broken? Jenner already has a heart on her right hand. "The one on my right hand is a full heart to represent an angel, and my left is a broken heart — kind of like the devil side," Jenner wrote in a post on her website.

Miley Cyrus, Wayne Coyne & Katy Weaver
After the death of her beloved dog Floyd, Cyrus and her best friends — Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips and his partner Katy Weaver — got matching tattoos in her pup's honor.

The cameo tattoos feature Floyd's profile in the middle, surrounded by script that reads, "With a little help from my fwendz."

Ariana Grande
Grande didn't get her tattoo with her best friend — but she got it with her in mind, so we had to give her an honorable mention.

The best part? The duo recorded the experience on Dunn's YouTube show Well Dunn with Jourdan Dunn. They each got two interlocking Ds — as a reference to the initials of their last names.
