Celebrities Getting Tattoos in Honor of Their Movies is Becoming a Thing
Some interesting stuff here, guys. Just in time for the first Divergent screenings, Ellie Goulding, who has four songs on the film soundtrack, including "Beating Heart," showed her dedication to the Veronica Roth book-turned-movie with some fresh ink reminiscent of the lead character's.
Just like Tris (played by Shailene Woodley), the 27-year-old singer's sporting a design that depicts three ravens in flight on her collarbone. In the novel, the birds represent each of the family members (her mom, dad and brother) Tris leaves behind when she chooses to leave her born faction, Abnegation, and joins Dauntless; getting inked is one way to prove your fearlessness. Whether or not Ellie's is the real deal like the heroine's, though, is still up in the air.
This seems to be becoming a 'thing' among celebrities — permanently inking oneself with a representative symbol of one's movie. During promo for The Mortal Instruments, Jamie Campbell Bower expressed his plans to do the same, "I'm getting 'I am, after all, what you made me,' which is a quote from one of the later books, on my back with two roses."
Rupert Grint also mentioned at the end of his megawatt franchise, Harry Potter, in 2011, "There was talk between [the cast] about doing something like a tattoo. It would have been something subtle like Harry's lightning scar. It would've been a great way of marking the end of filming."
And, of course, there's the cast members of The Lord of the Rings. According to Moviefone, "The nine members of the Fellowship had become so close that they all decided to get tattoos of the Elvish number 9 on various parts of their bodies. Well, almost all; John Rhys-Davies (Gimli) reportedly didn't go to the tattoo parlor but sent his stunt double in his stead."
ANOTHER tattoo for Harry Styles. Wait 'til you see what he got this time…
