Tom was explaining his tattoos a lot in Venice. OH TO HAVE BEEN THERE.
These photos were posted on Facebook by TuStyle, an Italian magazine. The second shot really lets you see the work-in-progress around the Union Jack. Looks like lots more ink is on the way…
Tom Hardy. The protagonist of: Bronson, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. He has another tattoo written in Italian, if you look carefully at his right arm (left in photo): “My beautiful son” [figlio mio bellissimo]. He said that writing it in English would not have sounded as good.
add: on the tusyle magazine site, it says that Tom also has “sans souci” tattooed on his back. Wish they’d snapped a closeup of that.
On the arm it reads, in large letters, “my beautiful son.” Under the neck, “proud father.”Dedicated to Louis, now 5 years old, his son with former girlfriend Rachael Speed. When asked if he likes the Italian for some particular reason, he replied that some of his other tattoos are in French and he lifted his shirt to show us an inscription on the back: “sans souci” (no worries).
