Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson have not made their relationship red carpet official, even though they have been dating for nearly a year. But, they have taken things to the next level by getting matching tattoos.
Last weekend, during a photocall at the Venice Film Festival for Johnson’s new film Suspiria, photographers captured her tattoo which was barely visible on the back of her left forearm, below her elbow. The ink was of an infinity sign with two small X’s, and it was identical to the one Martin had on the inside of his right forearm at the launch of S.E.A. Jeans just two days before.

The A-list couple has kept their relationship super low-key, and they started dating after meeting through mutual friends in October 2017. Just one month later, fans noticed that Johnson was in the sound booth during a Coldplay concert in Argentina, and Twitter subsequently lost its mind because of the excitement that these two were an actual item.
Martin and Johnson spent Christmas apart, but according to People Magazine, they got together at Martin’s home in January.
“They had dinner with friends. They also hung out at Chris’ house and went for a beach walk. They didn’t see each other over the holidays and seem excited to be catching up now,” said an insider at the time.
Cameras have rarely caught the couple together in public during the past year, but there was a report that they attended Ellen DeGeneres’ 60th birthday hand-in-hand, and Martin’s ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow was also there with her new fiancé, Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk.
Even though neither Johnson nor Martin have confirmed their relationship, her mom Melanie Griffith did reveal back in May that she adored her daughter’s boyfriend but explained that Johnson keeps her life extremely private, and she respects that.
It isn’t clear if Johnson and Martin are thinking long-term about each other, but the matching tattoos could be a hint that things are starting to get extremely serious. An insider says that Johnson loves to hang out with Martin at his Malibu home, and they do have friends over for dinner. They also enjoy spending time at the beach or taking walks around the neighborhood. “It does seem they are getting more serious,” says the source.
The few times that cameras have caught Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson together, they appear to be happy. So, hopefully, we will see them on a red carpet together sooner rather than later.
