Red Hot Chilli Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis sports a portrait of Chief Joseph on his left arm.

What the pro says: “It looks like the singer from Queensryche.” — Greg, Everlasting Tattoo.

The majority of Anthony’s tattoos are in black ink although the two inner arm ones are coloured; his tattoos are symmetrical in layout with balanced, but not completely identical, designs on either arm.

Many of the designs reflect aspects of his life most noticeably his North American heritage (on his maternal side).

Several of his tattoos were drawn by, Henky Penky (real name Henk Schiffmacher), a tattooist based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, who is famous for his work on rock n’ roll icons.

There are various online interpretations as to the origin of the design. The most common views are that it is of an Inca/Aztec falcon but some people claim it is a Haida thunder bird.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor showed off his body while calmly talking on the phone, which is how we got a look at all his tattoos. What do you think Wambie girls? Do you like his tattoos or is it too much?

One of the worst-kept secrets among The Lord of the Rings cast was that all of the actors comprising Peter Jackson’s “fellowship” went out and got matching tattoos as a memento of their experiences together in New Zealand.

While the press honored their requests that we not photograph the tattoos, some did lift their shirts, pull down their pants, or expose their ankles to show off their lasting reminders of The Lord of the Rings!

Viggo Mortensen: Not in the same place as theirs! We all got the same one – the word “nine” in Elvish – because that’s what we are, nine. I visited the tattooist a couple times, showed him the drawing and stuff.

I didn’t say anything about Ian McKellen or whoever may be coming in. He just did it. We did all meet one morning and it was an interesting event, and I enjoyed it. Half a day. Actually everyone showed up. It goes along with all the other scars we got!

Ian McKellen: It did rather surprise me- I didn’t think I’d ever have a tattoo: I’ve never been pierced. but I am now. It’s on display during Dance of Death, if you want to see it – I take my shirt off on the Broadway stage, and it’ll cost you $70.

Black nail polish, tattoos and tight leather trousers – the grungy new look is a radical departure for fresh-faced Orlando Bloom. The hunky actor donned the goth get-up, which was completed with long tousled locks, for his latest film Sympathy For Delicious.

He revealed the makeover when he stepped off the Los Angeles set of the drama about a recently-paralysed DJ who develops the ability to heal people.

The fake tattoos join his real ones – a sun symbol on his tum and the number nine in Elvish on his right wrist, a souvernir of his Lord Of The Rings days.

Orlando, who turned 32 on January 13, was seen chatting on the phone during his break, perhaps checking in with his leggy Australian love, model Miranda Kerr.

He’s usually the clean-cut pretty boy but Orlando Bloom revealed a distinctly dirtier look yesterday.

The 32-year-old was seen chatting on his mobile phone while on set in Los Angeles wearing nothing up top except a shaggy brown wig.

The Lord Of The Rings star’s toned torso was also adorned with a couple of fake tattoos – a tree that spread from his hip to his chest and two black bands on his left arm.

Bloom was sporting the grunge look for his latest role as a DJ in the film Sympathy for Delicious.

The role was originally filled by Milk actor James Franco but he had to pull out so Bloom stepped in.

The movie is directed by Just Like Heaven actor Mark Ruffalo and tells the story of a recently-paralysed DJ who develops an ability to heal people.
