    Maybe someone should take away Margot Robbie's tattoo gun...

    For most people, a tattoo is something you carry with you for a lifetime. It only makes sense that the tattoos many people get have special meanings or stories behind them.

    For some actors, a tattoo is the perfect way to commemorate a role that meant a lot to them. Occasionally, their costars join in, too.

    Here are 16 costar duos, trios, and entire casts who have matching tattoos:

    1. After Avengers: Infinity War, five of the six original Avengers got matching tattoos representing the team's symbol.

    Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Robert Downey Jr. all got the tattoo, but Mark Ruffalo opted not to because he's scared of needles.
