Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin got matching infinity-symbol tattoos

75th Venice International Film Festival - Suspiria - Premiere

As much as I can appreciate a tattoo, and I have four of them, I’m not a fan of getting “couple tattoos,” because as I’ve learned, it’s a risky prospect. All of my ink is mine and isn’t tied to anyone, thank goodness. The latest celebrities to show their commitment by permanently etching it on their skin are Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson.

28-year-old Dakota and 41-year-old Chris, who, to be honest, I completely forgot were a “thing” have been together for almost a year. They recently debuted subtle, matching tattoos of an infinity symbol with two Xs embedded in it. Over the weekend when Dakota was at the Venice Film Festival promoting the upcoming (and really creepy-looking) Suspiria, the ink was visible below her left elbow. Last week, at a promotional event in Los Angeles, Chris was sporting the same thing in a similar location on his inner arm.

The couple has been very low-key about their union and I’m okay with that. I actually kind of dig the tattoos as well. I’m all about the tiny tattoos. If only I were younger. Sigh. And, to be honest, it’s not the most regrettable thing that Dakota has ever done (**cough** Fifty Shades **cough**).

While Chris and Dakota may be intensifying their relationship, Chris is still maintaining a solid friendship wth his ex, Gwyneth Paltrow. In one of the most interesting articles I found while researching this story, the pair spent time together over the weekend in Malibu, where they were treated to the sight of a surfing dog. This is the most awesome thing I’ve seen all day.

    I don’t know what this says about me, but I kind of love them as a couple. They both just seem…nice.

    • smcollins says:

      Same here. I know they’re not very exciting, but I think that’s what I like about them. Low-key & drama-free, nothing wrong with that.

  2. Melania says:

    They’re so bland

  3. BaBaDook says:

    Ugh. Grow up Chris Martin.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      @ BaBaDook : Indeed. Jennifer Lawrence and now Dakota Johnson. I guess he doesn’t date anyone who is older than 29?

      • BaBaDook says:

        It’s just so boring at this point. Hollywood man marries hollywood woman, they get older, have kids, break up (more often than not he cheats, but not in this case tbf) and then he dates a litany of women half his age. Repeat until the end of time.

  4. Nancy says:

    Poor girl. I’d hate to be the one following Goop. GL..

  5. tale says:

    what a boring couple. And something about him irks me, ugh.

  6. Nikki says:

    I think she was smart to do 50 Shades of Grey, because it really made her famous, and sold a lot of tickets. Now she has a lead role is Suspiria, so she’s up for big roles, whereas before she was pretty unknown. About her and Chris What’s His Name, I feel sorry for a 20-something involved with a man so much older who already has 2 kids, ESPECIALLY when Gwyneth Paltrow will always be a major part of their lives. She seems very controlling to me, and what a drag working out all those family dynamics, every holiday and school break. Poor Dakota: RUN!

    • jessamine says:

      With JLaw it just seemed like a rebound thing and it was and she moved on but hopefully had fun while it lasted … With Dakota I just want to be like GIRL YOU HAVE YOUR WHOLE LIFE AHEAD OF YOU. At least the tattoo is small and neutral enough that she won’t end up having to get a giant back moth like Kaley Cuoco when the relationship winds down.

    • Derriere says:

      I guess…but her acting in 50 Shades was so bad that I have no interest in seeing a movie headlined by her. Luckily Tilda is attached to Suspiria, so I’ll check it out. If not for her, I’d be over it. Sorry, Dakota.

  7. Esmom says:

    I’d forgotten they were together, too. I was hoping to see what the tat looked like.

    I don’t have tattoos but my 17 year old son is interested in getting a tiny one when he turns 18, to symbolize a medical obstacle that he works hard every day to overcome. I don’t have a problem with that. Actually we gave him permission to get it this year but the tattoo artist (who specializes in small ones) said he won’t do it until he turns 18, even with our ok.

  8. Electric Tuba says:

    Well I guess Martin is trying to specifically go for the opposite of Gooper lol. Not my bag but hey everyone get happy for a minute that’s cool

  9. Littlefishmom says:

    They’re dating? No clue.

  10. Milla says:

    My sis and bro in law have those tattoos. But they’ve been together since high school, so they did the tattoos for their wedding anniversary.

  11. Jumpingthesnark says:

    I know nothing about Dakota. I can’t imagine the amount of passive aggression she has to deal with from goopy tho’. That relationship will end when Dakota has had enough from goopy, I think.

  12. Myrtle says:

    So subtle! You can hardly see them.

  13. Harla says:

    Dear Corey, please don’t let your age put off from getting more tattoos! I’m in my mid 50′s and still getting inked and probably will for as long as I can. The great thing about getting older is not giving a damn what anyone else thinks, so rock your tats!! :)

  14. tealily says:

    I completely forgot they were together too. Sounds right.

  15. Katy says:

    As a 28 year old, I just don’t understand what these gorgeous young women see in him. Dakota, Jennifer and that other one, the Peaky Blinders actress. Why would you want a 40 something divorced man with two kids and 15 years of history with his ex? Why not date someone young, sexy and rich who hasn’t already done the whole family and “great love” thing with someone else.

    Chris Martin isn’t even that handsome or stylish. He wears the ugliest sneakers. And you betcha Goopy makes her “importance” in his life known at all times.

    • Agapanthus says:

      I totally agree. Although Annabelle Wallis (the peaky blinders actress) moved on and upgraded to Chris Pine! Jelly me!!

  16. CharlieBouquet says:

    I can see goopy cattily giving her a tiny robin eggs blue turquoise egg in a faberge egg- and suggests she uses it to keep herself pliant for her consciously uncoupled ex.

  17. steph o says:

    Corey, I love it when you bring your brand of snark! This article cracked me up.

  18. Anna says:

    Oh man, I forgot these two were together! Imagine having to be a step parent to Gwyneths kids. I don’t know how anyone could handle it (dealing with Goop of course, nothing against the kids themselves)
