The tattoos have a cross enclosed in a diamond shape, with two lengths of string coming from the bottom to form a kite.

Bryce also has a headphone tattoo to represent his radio career, but he’s had that for nearly a decade.

The couple showed off their new ink at a Wednesday night reunion dinner, which was filmed in Sydney in February.
