Cara Delevingne & Jourdan Dunn Got Matching Tattoos, Because Friendships In Your Twenties Never End

If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends,
Make it last forever ’cause friendship never ends.

A wise set of women once sang the above lyrics, and they are almost accurate; you should indeed befriend your significant others’ friends because it’s just a good, healthy thing to do. However, friendship often does end–otherwise, we would all still be BFFs with every Sue, Sam and Sally who came into our lives in kindergarten. But according to Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, and everyone else who’s ever gotten stupid BFF or partner tattoos, that is totally never going to happen. Nope. It’s different for them.

Today, Cara posted a photo on her infamous Instagram account of her new matching tattoo with Jourdan. It features the letters “DD,” just in case the pair ever forget that their last names start with the same letter:

(Or perhaps they are just trying to remind themselves of big boobs and/or Dunkin Donuts at all times.)

The photo included a cameo by Cara’s finger tattoo, which is actually a pretty cool lion, as well as the caption, “@officialjdunn so happy we got our DDs! Thank you@bangbangnyc #throwsomedsonthat #DDs4life.” Accurate, I think, since I presume they will continue being “Dunn” and “Delevingne” to some capacity 4 life, indeed.

Perhaps I’m cynical (no, just kidding, I’m totally cynical), but I just don’t think it’s always a safe bet to assume you will be friends, lovers or even spouses with the same person for the rest of your life–AND also continue digging your matching tattoos. Everyone thinks they’re different, until suddenly they’re not, and then ta-da! You’ve still got those stupid turquoise shooting stars on your left shoulder blades that “represent mah ladies.”

Some people are cool with the potentially negative reality and if you are one of those people, by all means, take it away! As for me, I am fairly certain that if a friendship or relationship ended, even if it was amicable, I would still not want a reminder of the absence of that person in my life all the time. Suddenly, it would go from a dedicatory tattoo to an almost “in memorium” for somebody who’s still alive and, let’s be honest, may not like you very much.

    My first thought when I saw this tattoo this morning was “Dunkin Donuts” and I had to remind myself what Jourdan’s last name was for this to make sense.

    Ugh, I made this mistake once. At least it’s a pretty small, nondescript tattoo (and not of the person’s name) in a place I don’t see often.

    well if they decide that they don’t want to be friends in the future anymore, then they can always each get double D breast implants and say that the tattoo is an ode to them

    I could make some pun about Cara being “Dunn” with the tattoo someday, but I won’t.

    I would never get a tattoo for a person unless the person was dead and thus we were incapable of doing anything to piss each other off. But how long have these women been friends? My best friend and I are in our twenties, but we’ve been best friends for almost twenty years – at this point she is my sister, and as good a choice as there could be for a tattoo buddy for me.

    i used to think this way, but have started to think, a tattoo about someone doesnt have to be put there because you think that person’s forever going to be in your life. It may be because, in that moment, they mean so much to you and you want your body to represent the things (past OR present) that are important. even relationships with the messiest endings fathomable can be seen as worthwhile, important and a learning experience that merit some physical marking on your skin (if youre into that).
