How did Tom Hardy come to be known as the “King of Questionable Tattoos”?
Tom Hardy is a British actor and model who has starred in films such as The Dark Knight Rises and Venom. He’s also been in a number of television shows, including Band of Brothers, Peaky Blinders, and Wuthering Heights.
Hardy is a handsome man. People would have to look twice to grasp not just his attractive appearance and powerful frame, but also the myriad of tattoos adorning his body.
The Tattoos of Tom Hardy
Hardy has roughly 30 tattoos on his body and does not regret any of them. These dubious designs have a unique meaning for him, whether it’s because of memorable events, individuals, or lost bets.
The following is a list of the inks that have been used to decorate Hardy’s body, as well as the reasons for their use.
Leo is an expert in everything.
After losing a wager to Leonardo DiCaprio, Hardy got the tattoo ‘Leo Knows All.’ The wager was on DiCaprio not winning an Oscar for The Revenant, as Hardy predicted.
Hardy was forced to get the tattoo after DiCaprio won the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for the film. Hardy, on the other hand, did not hesitate to get the tattoo done, and it currently adorns his arm.
For His Wife, Tattoos Riley, Charlotte
In 2014, the actor married his current wife, Charlotte Riley. He’s had two inks dedicated to her since then. The word ‘Charlotte’ is tattooed on his shoulder, while Riley’s image is tattooed on the left side of his back.
Tribal and Leprechaun Pattern
When Hardy was 15, he received his first tattoo. As a nod to his Irish roots, he had a leprechaun tattooed on his right arm. Later on, he covered it in tribal motifs.
Sarah Ward, His Ex-Wife, Is Honored With Tattoos
As a tribute to his ex-wife Sarah Ward, Hardy has a few tattoos on his body. From 1999 to 2008, the couple was married for almost a decade.
Ward’s birth year is represented with a dragon tattooed on his left biceps.
He also has a ‘W’ on his right forearm and the words ‘Till I die SW’ inked on his abdomen in an old English script.
Tattoos in Honor of His Son, Louis
As a tribute to his kid, Hardy has two tattoos. He has a star inked on his left shoulder and the letters ‘LH’ written on his left arm. After learning that Rachel Speed was expecting Louis, he was awarded the star.
After Hardy’s first marriage ended, the actor began dating Speed, and the two dated for four years.
In Italian, the actor also goes by the names ‘Figlio mio bellissimo’ and ‘Padre Fiero,’ which translate to ‘My kid is exquisite’ and ‘Proud Father,’ respectively.
Marine Corps (Marine Corps)
Although Hardy was not a Marine, his best friend’s father was. Regrettably, he died while serving his country.
As a result, the actor gets ‘his Marine Corps number 1338046’ written near his collarbone on the right side as a tribute to him.
Lindy King is a model and actress.
Lindy Kind, a woman, had promised Hardy that she would help him get into Hollywood. He had vowed to get her name tattooed on his body.
Hardy is now one of Hollywood’s most sought-after performers, with the moniker ‘Lindy King’ tattooed on his bicep.
On his body, the actor has a large tattoo of Madonna, Jesus’ mother. This is a sign of motherhood that has a deeper meaning for Hardy.
The actor’s ability to “mother” his parents, children, and himself is symbolized by this piece of art.
On the left side of his back, Hardy has a sketch of a Pitbull (the breed, not the singer). Muzzle, his pet, is honored in this piece.
Tattoos Honoring Movies
On the left side of his chest, the actor sports a raven tattoo devoted to Mad Max and The Dark Knight Rises. He also has an angry wolf tattooed on his left forearm, which denotes his role in The Revenant.
Feathers, the Union Jack, birds, cards, the skull, sacred heart, crosses, comedy and tragedy masks, and a scorpion are among Hardy’s other tattoos.
