Actress Dakota Johnson and Goop’s ex-husband Chris Martin have only been dating for about a year, yet have already found it necessary to profess their love in the most permanent of ways—by getting matching tattoos.
But that isn’t even the stupidest part of this situation! (Getting a matching tattoo with your boyfriend one year into the relationship is straight stupid, and kindly do not @ me.) Because undoubtedly, the stupidest factor here is that the tattoos are…infinity signs.
Now, Chris Martin I get. You can’t be a member of Coldplay for over two decades and not be a basic b-tch, just like you can’t in earnest have Coldplay queued up on an oft-listened Spotify playlist and not be a basic b-tch. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing! I’m just stating facts.
But I truly didn’t expect this of Dakota Johnson. I don’t know why I presumed she was above an infinity sign tattoo. Maybe I was bamboozled by her slightly crinkled flower tattoo, courtesy of artist to the stars Dr. Woo, which Johnson claims to have gotten because “It’s a lil f*cked up, but it’s still a flower, like me ✨.” (Some may say this was evidence enough of the actress’ basic b-tch-ness—but I was willing to allow a little poor-little-rich-girl self-pitying.)
Or maybe I assumed—surely—the daughter of legends and award-winner actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson would know better? I don’t know what I was thinking. Anyway, I feel like I’ve been ragging on these two lovebirds kind of hard, and that seems unfair. Is this actually cute, and I’m just jaded? (No.)
And here is Martin, with the infinity on his forearm:
Here’s to hoping these two lovebirds truly do stay together…for infinity.
