Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner are among some of our favorite celebrity best friends in the industry, and both HBO stars have the date August 7, 2009 inked in red on their forearms. The timestamp is in honor of the date they both found out they landed their respective roles on Game of Thrones.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy may have premiered years ago, but the cast was one of the first we remember celebrating the journey with a round of matching tattoos. Nine co-stars — including Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, Dominic Monaghan, Sean Bean, Viggo Mortensen, Ian McKellen, Billy Boyd, Sean Astin, and John Rhys-Davies' stunt double (Davies declined) — all got the number nine in Elvish script, the language created by J. R. R. Tolkien for the series, somewhere on their bodies.
Today was a magical day. Another day to be grateful to be alive. Alisha, Selena, and I went together to get ; tattoos. The ; symbol stands for an end of one thought and a beginning of another. Instead of a period, authors use the semicolon to continue a sentence. For us, it means a beginning of another chapter in life, in lieu of ending your life. I struggled with addiction and depression issues through high school and early college. I reached out and asked for help. At the time, I thought my life was over, I thought I'd never live past the age of 21. Today I'm grateful to be alive, in this new chapter of life in recovery, standing with my colleagues and friends, making art that helps other people. If you're struggling, if you feel suicidal, I urge you to click the link in my bio. Ask for help. Start a new chapter with the support of others. 🌧⛅️🌤☀️and RIP Amy Bleul, who started the semicolon movement.
While Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson were all supposed to get matching tattoos when the Hunger Games trilogy wrapped, only Lawrence went through with it. Her tattoo of choice? The chemical name for water, "H2O," which, according to Lawrence, looks more like a scar than ink.
Another ensemble of stars who recently celebrated their film together are the women from Mad Max: Fury Road. Courtney Eaton told Vanity Fair that her co-stars in the film (which include Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, Abbey Lee) got matching tattoos after their close bond bloomed. "We all got the same tattoo—three little dots and a triangle," she said.
