Justin Theroux has inkings from a “couple of drunken tattoo nights”.
The fiancé of Jennifer Aniston is covered in tattoos, including designs on his legs and a piece which covers his back. The work has pretty much all been done by celebrated tattoo artist Scott Campbell, with Justin returning the favor upon occasion.
“I’m riddled with them; I’m ruined with tattoos. And Scott did most of the ruining, as well,” Justin explained to Vanity Fair.
“We became friends first, and then we had a couple drunken tattoo nights. And I’ve tattooed him, too, by the way. I’ve done a bunch of them. I did a really great wolf’s head. I did an amazing skull and crossbones. I did a stunning yin-yang on him.”
The actor was quizzed on how talented he is with an artist’s needle and had to admit he could do with a little training. While the markings he’s given Scott might have great sentimental value, they aren’t that artistic.
“Oh, I messed every single one of them up. But he kind of likes it,” Justin laughed. “I did a yin-yang, which is probably one of the worst yin-yangs. We laughed so hard. It might be one of the worst yin-yangs ever made. A little bit egg-shaped.”
Justin has been based in New York City recently where he is shooting his new TV show The Leftovers. It is due to premiere on HBO in June, with the star remaining tight-lipped about it until then.
“I’m reluctant to [say much about it]… I’m going to wait till the reception, you know. I’ll wait till it comes out, and then I’ll start,” he said. “It’s a pretty intense show. Get ready, it’s a strap-in kind of show.”
