Sansa and Arya Stark might not always get along, but in real life Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams represent the ultimate friendship goals.

The “Game of Thrones” stars teased that they had gotten matching tattoos earlier this week, but they kept the design of the tats a secret. However, when Turner walked the Emmys red carpet on Sunday, she showed off her new ink and the sweet message behind it.

Turner and Williams’ matching tattoos say “07.08.09,” the day both actresses landed their “Thrones” gigs.

“We got them together just the other day,” Turner said, adding that while it’s their first matching tattoo, it might not be their last.

“With ‘Thrones,’ we were like, if we make it all the way through, hopefully we could all get a matching wolf,” Turner said. “But we don’t know if we’re going to make it, so Maisie and I were like, ‘Let’s get this before anyone kills us.'”

Sunday night, the HBO epic won the Emmy for best drama for the second year in a row, along with trophies for both writing and directing for a drama series.
