Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams Debut Matching Tattoos at the Emmys
Despite only being sisters on-screen, that doesn’t seem to slow down the friendship dynamics of Game of Thrones besties’ Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams – who celebrated their friendship by recently debuting matching ink. The Stark sisters now sport “07.08.09” on their inner arms – with Williams getting it done on her left arm and Turner on the right.
They got their tattoos done in Northern Ireland, at Belfast City Skinworks by Miss kat Paine, who had posted a photo (black and white photo) on her Facebook of herself and the GoT actresses with the caption “Got to tattoo these gorgeous girlies today Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner from Game of Thrones” – leaving fans to crack their heads open trying to guess what they had gotten. As of late, Paine published another photo of Williams and Turner showing off their freshly inked arms – after the actresses had officially showed it off to the public themselves first.
At the 68th Emmy Awards 2016 in Los Angeles, Turner opened up about how they got their tattoos.
So why “07.08.09”?
“It’s the date that we both heard that we got Game of Thrones,” she told E! News’ Giuliana Rancic, adding jokingly that “it’s still a bit crusty.”
“We always kind of said we want matching tattoos. The date was always really significant and then with Thrones we were always planning from Season One, like if we make it all the way through, hopefully we could all get a matching thing.”
Maisie Williams rocks the traditional black-ink for her tattoo, while as requested by her mother – Turner opted for a more natural peach shade so that it wouldn’t be that obvious on screen.
Since there’s no predicting the lifespan of each GoT character, Turner took a jab at the timing of getting their tattoos done, saying: “We don’t know if we’re going to make it so Maisie and I were like, ‘Let’s get these ones before anyone kills us!’”
For the hardcore GoT fans, Turner also mentioned that “fans are going to be really satisfied” about Season 7. She said that she was “speechless” after reading the scripts, and called this season “unbelievable”; but then again, which season hasn’t been!?
