Hugh Jackman's Forearm Tattoo Explained!

Hugh Jackman's Forearm Tattoo Explained!

Hugh Jackman sports a tattoo of a nude mermaid on the forearm of his right arm, but don’t be alarmed, it’s not real!

A reliable source tells that the tattoo is just for his Broadway play, “Steady Rain,” co-starring Daniel Craig. Hugh wears a short-sleeved shirt throughout the show, so you can see the tattoo the whole time.

“Denny (his character from the play) got the tattoo before he got married,” the source tells Just Jared.

According to Variety, the show has made $3 million in advance sales already from American Express cardmembers who took advantage of an exclusive presale before the public could even purchase tickets.

Maybe Hugh should keep the tattoo as a memento of the play’s success!

at least is not a tattoo of his wife! that would be scary!

Will be so glad when people stop getting their bodies marked up with tattoos.

lili, that was rude. I wanna see your freaking face. =) Umm, and clay, if it is their choice and they are sure that they will love the tatoos they “mark themself up” with, it is ok for me. You should respect it aswell. I even plan on getting tats myself later :p ….. Okay, back to the subject, Hugh is hot ANYWAY.

@Just Jared: thanks for the clarity, finally! Many people (included me) had understood that the tattoo is a fake, quite a lot fools believed it was true!

b is uglyyyyy – he’s standing like that because he’s hailing a cab in NYC.

At least Hugh can cover up the fake tat if he’s fed up with it – poor Dan has to wear the walrus mustache until the end of the play and can’t hide it, lol.

From what I’ve read so far, the play is getting raving reviews, and it’s brilliant for both actors that all their hard work (and tats and mustaches) have paid off! Congratulations!

The man is hot even when he was hailing a cab.

it looks real : PS:the mermaid is naked

oohh big deal!

so he gets paid millions for one hour’s work a night and he draws a fake tattoo so he can slip into his character easily?

who the hell are these actors taking the piss out of?

yes, the people who buy the tix to go and see them.

half the worlds struggling and starving and people are talking about a fake tattoo and a mustache?
