Celebrity Ink – Tom Hardy
“Every tattoo I have means something to me. Each one is something that I’ve been through in my life or I’ve done or I’ve been…So I map that out on me, where I’ve been and where I’m going.”

Fighting Irishman on right outer bicep.
Large tribal design covering much of upper right arm.

“If I have to have a tattoo, I have to have it now. I don’t care what’s going on.”

To the surprise of many particularly those whose interest has only been piqued recently in the juggernaut that is Tom Hardy, the tattoos that he has on display in his film, Warrior, are all real. The only cosmetic touching up that was done was covering the Fighting Irish tattoo on his right shoulder and filling in the existing tribal piece.

His tattooing journey started at 15 when, much to the dismay of his mother, he had the fighting irish tattoo done on his upper shoulder, since then he has had his life documented in tattoos, each one having a deep and personal meaning. The latest pieces, including his Union Jack, Madonna and child and the portrait of his fiancee have been inked by the Bryan Glatiotis of Darkday Tattoo Studios in Vancouver while filming This Means War.
