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.

    Netflix's 13 Reasons Why centers on the factors that pushed Hannah Baker to commit suicide. In 2017, Selena Gomez — who served as executive producer on the series — accompanied cast members Alisha Boe and Tommy Dorfman to get matching semicolon tattoos. Since the show's release, the semicolon has become a symbol in the fight against depression, and the group Project Semicolon has been founded to help spread awareness. Regarding their mission, a spokesperson from the group said, "it's a movement dedicated to presenting hope & love to those who struggle with mental illness, suicide, addiction & self-injury."

  • In order to commemorate the end of the Emmy award winning drama Breaking Bad, the show's stars, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, got inked by one of the show's set decorators, who also happened to be a tattoo artist.

    Cranston explained the reasoning behind getting the Breaking Bad logo tattooed on his right finger: "I wanted something... something that would give me private personal pleasure, like when I pass by and catch a glimpse of a picture of my mom, or my old manager people who are gone now."

    Aaron Paul got the words "no half measures" tattooed on his bicep. The tat pays homage to a Season 3 episode of the same name.

    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."
