People get tattoos in honor of family members and hobbies, and the same goes for celebrities. After working on a movie for months, or in some cases, years, it’s no wonder actors get attached to a few of their favorite roles.
When actors take on a role, they sign up for a temporary gig. As it turns out, though, some of them found their characters to be so special that they wanted to immortalize their experiences. Here are 12 celebrities who got tattoos to honor their TV and movie roles.
1. The actors from The Avengers franchise
Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner got the Avengers symbol tattoo. Mark Ruffalo didn’t get one because he is afraid of needles, so it seems that the Hulk is not that tough after all.
2. Sophie Turner
Sophie Turner got a House Stark’s sigil (a direwolf) ink with her line, “The pack survives.”
3. Pretty Little Liars
Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Janel Parrish, and Sasha Pieterse got matching ink on their famous “Shhh” index finger with the intials of their characters.
4. Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris got his first tattoo in honor of A Series of Unfortunate Events getting renewed. He chose a “scamp stamp” of the Volunteer Fire Department (V.F.D.) insignia on his ankle, the same tattoo as his character Count Olaf had.
5. The Lord of the Rings cast
Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn), Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Elijah Wood (Frodo), Dominic Monaghan (Merry), Sean Astin (Sam), Billy Boyd (Pippin), and Sean Bean (Boromir) each got the number nine written in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Elvish Tengwar script, although John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli, famously declined.
6. The Suicide Squad cast
Margot Robbie acquired a tattoo gun during filming, and she’s since given over 25 tattoos with it. Soon after, other Squad members like Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg) and Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang) started posting photos of their own ink. Kinnaman shared a picture of his new “skwad” tattoo, courtesy of co-star Will Smith, who plays Deadshot.
7. Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner
Game of Thrones stars Maisie Williams, and Sophie Turner got matching tattoos to symbolize the date they were cast on the HBO show.
“We always said that we wanted them so we got the date 07.08.09 on our arms because that’s the date that both of us found out we’d got our roles in Game Of Thrones. So when we had a day off from filming in Belfast, we just went to a tattoo place and got it done.”
8. The 13 Reasons Why cast and Selena Gomez
Tommy Dorfman and Alisha Boe, as well as executive producer Selena Gomez, all got semicolon tattoos to commemorate the show and support Project Semicolon, which works with cases of suicide and psychological health.
9. Bryan Cranston
Bryan Cranston’s tattoo is tiny and on the inside of his finger, and it’s the symbol for Breaking Bad. He portrayed Walter White, the genius meth-making science teacher with cancer.
10. Aaron Paul
Aaron Paul got a Breaking Bad tattoo the day they finished filming. It’s the famous quote from Mike: “No half measures.”
11. Tom Holland
Tom Holland got the Spidey logo on the bottom of his foot. Holland shared that the ink kept fading so it was done three times.
12. Emilia Clarke
Emilia Clarke now has a permanent reminder of her queen bee status. The Game of Thrones star got her first tattoo, a little bumblebee on her little finger, just like her character in Me Before You.
Warner Bros. Eyeing Michael B. Jordan To Replace Henry Cavill As Superman
This would be intense.
Michael B. Jordan played the villain in Black Panther, but he may be the next black superhero. After actor Henry Cavill walked away from DC Comics, Warner Bros. is on the prowl for another Superman, and it may be Jordan.
After news broke that Cavill is quitting Superman, a report revealed that the entertainment company is considering some actors to replace him. Unfortunately, that film won’t start production anytime soon because the focus has shifted to Supergirl since Cavill’s departure.
Henry Cavill is reportedly done with the role of Superman.

Scientific Study Confirms Freddie Mercury Is The Greatest Singer Ever
For once, he had a different vibrato than most humans!
Freddie Mercury has one of the most recognizable voices in the history of music. Together with his band Queen, the late singer-songwriter displayed his impressive volcal range in classic rock hits such as “Another One Bites The Dust,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “I Want To Break Free,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “We Are The Champions,” and “We Will Rock You,” to name a few.
That list, of course, will not be complete without mentioning the massively-popular epic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which also happens to be the title of a full-length movie about Mercury’s life.
