Yep, the bromance has stepped up a gear!
Ricky and Mario got inked while over in Miami last month, getting matching foot tattoos that combine to spell 'Micky' aka Ricky and Mario.
The boys showed off their fancy footwork while in the recording studio recently, where Mario was supporting Ricky as he recorded his first single.
We're expecting to learn plenty more about the single, the tattoos and Ricky and Mario's ever blossoming bromance in the The Only Way Is Essexmas, the TOWIE Christmas special that airs this week.
Last time viewers saw Ricky, he was leaving Essex to spend time with family in Florida following his split from girlfriend of two-and-half-years Jessica Wright.
Mario, meanwhile, ended the last series of TOWIE by hitting out at Jess, Chloe Sims and Lauren Pope, who had all claimed he'd been flirting with them.
The Only Way Is Essexmas airs Wednesday, 10 December at 10pm on ITVBe.
