Celeb couples may be dropping like flies these days, but Ashley Benson's "squish" hip tattoo for Cara Delevingne is here to reassure us that love is, indeed, still alive and well in Hollywood. OK, so let me start off by answering the two most obvious questions: 1.) What exactly is this tattoo? 2.) And how do we know that the ink is for Delevingne?
Let's start things off with the first question. JonBoy, a favorite tattoo artist among all your favorite celebs, posted a beautifully artistic black and white picture of Benson's torso with her shirt pulled up just high enough for viewers to see the small cursive "squish" tattoo on her right hip. In addition to Benson's tat for Delevingne, Cosmopolitan reports JonBoy has also inked his signature tiny tats for Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Sofia Richie. So, yeah. He knows what's up.
Jonboy's caption, "squish @ashleybenson#jonboytattoo#jonboyxmoxy I love love ❤️," obviously indicates that the tattoo served a romantic purpose, but even so some particularly doubtful cynics could argue that she could have gotten a romantic tattoo for anyone.
To those people I say this: JonBoy tagged Delevingne directly on the "squish" tattoo. No, seriously. See it for yourself here:
Oh, and if you're still doubtful that it's in reference to Delevingne (which, like, at this point, come on, dude), I direct your attention to a throwback Delevingne posted in April of herself as a child. The picture itself is just of an adorable toddler Delevingne dressed in a yellow dress, but the caption is where the real proof comes in:
#tbt this is a very rare picture of me in a dress looking pleased with myself because I most probably had shorts on underneath. Once a squish, always a squish. My head was half fringe, half face. Squished
Yep, that's right, my friends. Delevingne even referred to herself as a squish. So, yeah. I think we can all agree here that's proof enough that Benson got the tat for her girlfriend, who she must refer to as her "squish." Awwwwwwwww. So freaking cute.
The "squish" tattoo is adorable, but it's reportedly not even the first tattoo Benson has gotten in honor of her love.
On July 22, Benson debuted her collaboration with eyewear brand Privé Revaux by posting an artistic picture of her profile in which she's wearing a pair of extremely cool sunglasses.
While the sunglasses were, in fact, very cool, what really drew the attention of fans was the "CD" tattoo she had visibly inked next to her left breast.
Fans speculated that, of course, the "CD" was in reference to Delevingne's initials.

Ah, love. While, despite rumors, it's unclear if Benson and Delevingne are engaged or married (previously, Elite Daily reached out to both stars' reps about their relationship status and did not hear back), what is clear is that these two are happily in love and not afraid to show it.
