Tattoo-junkie Brooklyn has turned his body into a literal canvas. "It was pretty soon after we started dating, and I am half-covered with stuff for her," he told E! News. "I have like over 20 dedicated to her. They're very addictive, especially when you love someone you just want to cover everywhere!"

Amongst his rumoured 95 tattoos, he has a portrait of Nicola on his upper arm, a sketch of her eyes on the back of his neck and his entire wedding vows written in cursive writing on the underside of his arm.

Lovebirds Beyoncé and Jay-Z paid tribute to one another with matching tattoos. It was revealed in The Sun's Fabulous magazine that "they both have a tattoo of the Roman numeral IV on their ring fingers". 

The reason the number four is significant is because it is the Crazy in Love singer's favourite number.

The publication went on to suggest that "even their first child Ivy, now nine, is thought to have been inspired by IV – the Roman numerals for four."

Following their starry nuptials, Hailey Bieber paid the ultimate tribute to her beau, Justin Bieber. The Rhode beauty creator paid a special visit to celebrity tattoo artist Mr.K, located at the famous Bang Bang studio in New York City. 

And in honour of their big day, Hailey chose to adorn her ring finger with a beautiful swirly 'J' accompanied by a dainty sparkle motif.

During the height of their romance, One Direction superstar Zayn Malik kept his then-girlfriend Gigi Hadid close to his heart. Quite literally. The singer famously added to his inking collection with a giant sketch of Gigi's brooding eyes emblazoned onto his chest.

J-Lo debuted her romantic inking

On Valentine's Day, smitten couple J-Lo and Ben Affleck stunned fans when they unveiled their coordinating tattoos. Taking their relationship to the next level, Jennifer opted for a large infinity sign pierced by an arrow. 

Her husband, meanwhile, decorated his upper arm with two intersecting arrows alongside the couple's initials. 


Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde

Watermelon Sugar hitmaker Harry Styles set the internet alight this week when he seemingly unveiled a touching tattoo tribute to his ex-girlfriend Olivia Wilde. In new holiday photos, Harry debuted a striking 'Olivia' inking on his upper thigh. 

Whilst many fans were quick to suggest that the artwork was a nod to his song titled 'Olivia', other fans argued that the inking was a not-so-subtle tribute to his co-star and former lover, Olivia Wilde.


Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson

Just one month after going official with Positions songstress Ariana Grande, Pete paid the ultimate tribute to his lover with a permanent change to his appearance: an inking behind his ear of Ariana's Dangerous Woman bunny mask.

And the tattoo tributes didn't end there… The comedian later expanded his collection with a touching inking of Ariana's initials 'AG'.
