On another front, Downey celebrated the huge success of Infinity War by getting a tattoo with five of his costars- Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans. "Five of the original six Avengers got a tattoo,” Downey told EW in an interview. "And the sixth was the tattoo artist, who gave it to five of us, the one who opted out being Mark Ruffalo. It was (Scarlett) Johansson’s idea, and she and (Chris) Evans did it in New York. Then, their New York guy, Josh Lord, who is amazing, flew out to LA, he did me, did (Jeremy) Renner, and then we just bullied (Chris) Hemsworth into doing it, and he got it."
