It didn’t seem possible, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe is hotter than ever before. Avengers: Endgame ended up shattering all previous box office records and quickly became the only thing anyone could talk about.

While it’s cool to see our favorite Marvel stars in their colorful costumes, those costumes hold an interesting secret: some hella awesome tattoos!

The core Avengers cast has a real love of ink, and we’ve got the inside story on these tattoos that are hotter than the Infinity Stones after a snap!

Scarlet Johansson

When it comes to celebrity tattoos, the world has a short memory. And megastar Scarlet Johansson is proof of it!

We actually saw her awesome back tattoo back when Avengers: Infinity War premiered. However, it still came as a surprise to many of her fans when they saw it at the premiere for Avengers: Endgame.

The tattoo in question is a lamb over a sweet floral design. While this is her most prominent tattoo, she actually has 7 others. It turns out her body is a real canvas for some awesome ink!

Chris Evans

As Captain America, Chris Evans is often seen as the heart of the Avengers. And because his character is often so squeaky-clean, many people mistakenly thought that this actor had no ink.

This is quite incorrect, as Evans is rocking 7 tattoos that we know of. On his left arm here, we can see the Taurus Zodiac symbol. This is actually his mother’s sign, and the tattoo is his way of keeping her with him at all times.

On his chest, we have a Buddhist quote. This represents the Buddhist teachings that helped him balance work and life as he became a global megastar.

He has other tattoos representing loyalty, his family, and even a friend who passed away. We may start calling this guy “tat” instead of “Cap!”

Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth’s body has been a cause of much inspiration (and even more perspiration) for fans all over the world. And while that body is a bit different in Endgame, you may be more surprised to discover what the body is hiding here in real life!

Compared to some of his costars, Hemsworth has very few tattoos. One tattoo on his right wrist commemorates the names of his children, while a tattoo on his right ribcage celebrates his bond with the MCU cast.

This bicep tat is our favorite, though. It’s from Dr. Seuss and represents all the places Hemsworth and his career have gone and continue to go!

Robert Downey, Jr.

Like the rest of the cast, Robert Downey, Jr. is a real family man. Accordingly, he has one tattoo on his left shoulder to commemorate his wife and one tattoo on his right shoulder to commemorate his son.

Our favorite, though, is the one on his right arm. This is sometimes referred to as the “Avengers cast tattoo” because five of the original Avengers got this tat (with Mark Ruffalo saying “thanks but no thanks”).

It was ScarJo’s idea (since she loves tattoos so much), and it gave the core cast something that will keep them bonded together long after the credits roll!
