Lea Michele reportedly wants to get matching tattoos with Corey Monteith.

The Glee actress has been dating her co-star since last year and she is so smitten with him, she is desperate for them to get similar etchings to prove their love for each other.

A source told HollywoodLife.com: “Lea wants Corey to get matching tattoos. She has been wanting to do this for a long time, but she hasn’t decided on the design yet. She wants a symbol that represents soul mates.”

Lea already has a number of tattoos and recently said she is keen to get more because she wants them to represent significant moments in her life.

She said: “I've got 10 little ones now! I have 'I believe' on my wrist, which I was inspired to do after I was in the Broadway show Spring Awakening. I have some musical notes on my back from Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and I talked Jenna (Ushkowitz) and Kevin (McHale) into getting 'imagine' on our left feet. My mom and I also have matching butterflies on our backs. I don't think I'm stopping at 10 though!” - Bang Showbiz
