The origins behind the tattoo that Hilary and The Walking Dead star Alanna (Tara) share are a little uncertain, but some say it was a celebration for Hilary's comeback single. Whatever the meaning behind this, I think the design is super cute.
8. Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne and Miley Cyrus
This unlikely friendship began early in 2014 when Miley Cyrus tweeted the extravagant frontman to say Happy Birthday.
Miley had been a fan of Flaming Lips for years and must have been thrilled when Wayne replied with his number. Since then, they have appeared on stage together countless times and Miley has even done some work with the frontman.
Now Wayne, Miley and his girlfriend all have matching tattoos.

Johnny and Marilyn have performed on stage together and are very close friends. They have two matching tattoos, the first, in Marilyn Manson's words is “Charles Baudelaire, the flowers of evil, this giant skeleton thing.”
The other is on their wrists:
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine Marilyn said that when people ask:
‘Why did you get that?’ And we say, ‘No reason.’ ”
Johnny Depp and Damian Echols
Johnny Depp also has a matching tattoo with Damian Echols. Damian is one of the ''West Memphis Three,'' a trio who were sentenced to life in prison for the murder of three boys, a crime that they did not commit.
Damian spent 18 long years in prison awaiting his fate on Death Row while celebrity backers Peter Jackson, Eddie Vedder, Dave Navarro and Johnny Depp organized events to help get him out due to flawed evidence. Now Johnny Depp and Damian are super close friends and their friendship has been honored by this tattoo.
If you don't know whether a matching tattoo with someone else is a good idea, you can always do what party monster Steve-O did and get a portrait of yourself in all your beauteous glory on your own skin. His tattoo design is hilarious, he really is a total Jackass!
