Zoe Saldana has cemented her love for husband Marco Perego in ink.

In case you’re playing catch-up, on Thursday’s episode of “The Late Late Show With James Corden,” the 38-year-old actress revealed that she got the face of her husband, tattooed on her side — rib cage to be exact. “I did and it’s here,” she said pointing to her left rib. “We’re those kind of people,” Saldana explained. “Oh, come on, be happy for us. He’s had my face on his arm, so it’s only fair.”

Last Friday, the mother of twins Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio, captured a pre-tattoo snapshot at the Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood, California.

According to the Guardians of the Galaxy star, the piece was two years in the making. “You want it to be in a place that’s private, that you only show when you’re, like, in a bathing suit,” Saldana shared. “And I’ve been wanting to get it for two years … but I finally got it.”

As for how Saldana selected the permanent and literal image of her hubby, she googled it. “I remember when I first started dating Marco and I went online because I know he’s was an artist,” she added. “So I looked him up and a picture came up. I thought it was a nice profile of his so that was the picture I wanted to have.”

Needless to say, despite the bad juju believed to be associated with couples getting matching tatts, or the fact that Perego got inked first, Saldana revealed the idea was hers and hers alone. “I was the one who was going to do it in the first place, but we get our tattoos with an amazing artist called Mark Mahoney. Every time we go for me, Marco would end up convincing me that I didn’t have to get it so that he can get a new tattoo.”

Though we have yet to see the finished work — not sure if we ever will, it appears that Saldana got just what she wished for.

What are your thoughts on the couple’s matching ink? Sound off in the comment section below.

    Another BLACK WHORE, paying for WHITE DNA = Dick-n-Attention…

    Why is it that BLACK WOMEN, get lower class WHITE MEN, when they are wealthy. This is called — GHETTO GAGGERS…When this WHITE MAN leaves Zoe Saldana, he will be RICHER and GET a WHITE GODDESS…

    Just like Hallie Berry, Fancy from the Jamie Foxx show, and so many other BLACK WHORES…You paying for WHITE DNA…hehe

      Yep ??! Don’t forget Whoopi’s black lip azz! Self-hate is real! She ended up having to pay ? her white Ninja ex-husbands alimony?! Dumb B!tches??, Even black male Ballers marry/date outside their race to have a bi/racial kid. Serena Williams plan was to never marry black because she didn’t want her kids teased like she was/is. Thank god I was taught to love ❤️ myself at a young age.

    These women in these comments are clearly bitter black women. There should not be such racist comments on a black website. Keep the hate alive and keep thinking you know self love when you indeed don’t. Tearing down another woman will not help your campaign.

      They are white trolls. Sol is a white man with multiple accounts (Nigg Newton). He despises black women and most black men. Nosey is a white woman with at least 3 accounts here (british rose and sugar butter bean).

    Hope it lasts for the sake of their matching tattoos… Maybe they’ll be
    the rare couple that takes their vows seriously….
