Actors who work on film or television sets together often become good friends, which has lead to an impressive number of stars who got tattoos together. Film sets can serve as bonding experiences for actors, as big-budget productions involve countless long, grueling hours. Additionally, when a TV show manages to stay on the air for multiple seasons, a lot of the actors wind up spending years with their “television family,” and tattoos are a great way for them to commemorate the end of a popular series. 

Viggo Mortenson and Elijah Wood are great examples of celebrities with the same tattoos; the duo went along with seven other cast members from The Fellowship of the Ring to get matching tattoos of the Elvish word for "nine." The casts of Suicide Squad and Mad Max: Fury Road also decided to get matching tattoos, and the former even skipped the tattoo parlor to do the actual inking themselves. Whatever the actors' reasoning is, you can be sure that movie and TV casts with matching tattoos are having a good time.

During the 2001 London premiere for The Fellowship of the Ring, the cast revealed that nine actors had gotten matching tattoos. Elijah Wood, who played Frodo, talked about the reasoning behind the matching ink: "We felt the experience was both wonderful enough and profound enough to have ourselves branded, so we went ahead and did that about a week before we finished."

Viggo Mortenson, who played Aragorn, discussed the choice to ink "nine" in Elvish on each cast member:

"We all got the same one — the word 'nine' in Elvish — because that's what we are, nine. I visited the tattooist a couple times, showed him the drawing and stuff. I didn't say anything about Ian McKellen or whoever may be coming in. He just did it. We did all meet one morning and it was an interesting event, and I enjoyed it. Half a day. Actually everyone showed up. It goes along with all the other scars we got!"

The cast of Pretty Little Liars hit the tattoo parlor in 2016 to commemorate the final season of the beloved drama. Actors Shay Mitchell, Janel Parrish, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Sasha Pieterse, and Troian Bellisario all showed up at a West Hollywood tattoo parlor after their final day of shooting, and each actor got a tattoo of their character's first initial on their "shhh finger."

In 2015, the cast of Suicide Squad all got matching tattoos. In a questionable choice that seems in line with the movie's nightmarish production, the actors decided to ink the tattoos themselves. Margot Robbie (who plays Harley Quinn) even stayed in character while she doled out the ink.

Actor Joel Kinnaman got inked by Will Smith. He wrote on his Instagram, “Will has many many talents, tattooing is not one of them. It was like watching a drunk baby fly a helicopter.” The tats are all of the word "skwad."

Maise Williams and Sophie Turner, who play the Stark sisters on HBO's epic drama The Game of Thrones, got matching tattoos in 2016. The off-camera pals each got the date "07.08.09" permanently inked on their bodies.

"She's one of my best friends in the whole world," Williams, who plays Arya Stark, revealed. "We got matching tattoos. That's the date that we both heard we got Game of Thrones on."

"We always kind of said we want matching [tattoos]," Turner said. "The date was always really significant... and then with Thrones we were always planning from season one, like if we could make it all the way through, hopefully we could all get a matching thing."
