Getting a huge tattoo on any part of your body is a huge commitment (just ask Mike Tyson) — but what if it's just temporary? Jessica Alba recently surprised fans when she showed off a large rose on her arm... that is removable, her rep tells E! News. (Phew.) The tat is for Alba's upcoming film A.C.O.D., a comedy also starring beloved Parks and Rec actor Adam Scott. So there is an upside to having to sport the massive ink! Below, a list of other celebrities who wore fake tattoos for movie roles.
One of Ed Norton's most petrifying turns was his Swastika-clad character in American History X. Thankfully, for the sake of your crush, Norton is not a skinhead in real life. So no need to curb your enthusiasm over the talented actor. (Oh god, why did I just remind myself of the curb scene?!)
And then, of course, there's one of the most famous tattoos in recent pop culture history: The dragon tattoo on Rooney Mara's back. It's all in the name of the film — you think we'd leave The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo off this list?
