The Original Cast Of ‘The Avengers’ Got Matching Tattoos

The Original Cast Of ‘The Avengers’ Got Matching Tattoos

The original cast of the blockbuster The Avengers has been together for the last six years, churning out three films together while appearing in other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. When you've been a team for that long, you're going to become the best of friends - because why wouldn't you? And what better way to cement that friendship than to all get matching tattoos.

Well it seems as though Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans did just that.


The design looks like an A (for Avengers) with the number six (for the six OG members) and an arrow moving forward maybe for the direction of the MCU.

I know what you're thinking: Where the hell is Mark Ruffalo aka Bruce Banner aka The Hulk in this incredible friendship circle? Apparently he wasn't a big fan when the crew got the ink.

But at least we've got Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America and Hawkeye on board.

Downey Jr told Entertainment Weekly: "Five of the original six Avengers got a tattoo. And the sixth was the tattoo artist, who gave it to five of us, the one who opted out being Mark Ruffalo. It was (Scarlett) Johansson's idea, and she and (Chris) Evans did it in New York.

"Then, their New York guy, Josh Lord, who is amazing, flew out to LA, he did me, did (Jeremy) Renner, and then we just bullied (Chris) Hemsworth into doing it, and he got it. And each one of us drew a line on the artist with his own tattoo gun and it was a total massacre.

The Iron Man actor adds that they all butchered their part when they gave Josh his tattoo and Scarlett even did another one, only because the line she did for the Avengers logo was 'a mess'.

Cancel your friendship goals because this here is true love.

There's still one more Avengers film to be released, which is slated for a May 3 2019 release - so Mark has less than a year to be convinced to join the fab five.

This lovely lot certainly isn't the first movie or TV show cast to get matching tattoos to remember their times on set with each other.

The cast of The Lord of the Rings got the number nine written in J.R.R. Tolkien's Elvish Tengwar script when they wrapped up filming.

Everyone from the Fellowship got the ink except for John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli.

Dominic Monaghan, who played Merry Brandybuck, told EW: "It was one of those beautiful moments, where we all felt like we had been through this war, this battle, together in a lot of different ways. That really brought together that family feeling."

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul got Breaking Bad tattoos when their incredible show was brought to an end, as did Selena Gomez, Tommy Dorfman and Alisha Boe after the first season of 13 Reasons Why.
