When the Will Smith produced film This Means War wraps in Vancouver next month, co-star Tom Hardy will return home to London. Today a shirtless Hardy showed off his fresh Tattoo at Darkday Tattoo Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The 33-year-old actor recently added a Union Jack tattoo on his upper left chest when he popped into the shop, one of his favorite local hangouts while he’s been filming This Means War.
“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,” Hardy told Canada’s Globe and Mail. The actor shared the significance behind some of his other tattoos; a star when he found out his then-girlfriend was pregnant with his 2 1/2-year-old son, the phrases “Figlio mio bellisimo” [”my beautiful son”] and “Padre fiero” [”proud father”], and the name of his agent [he promised her he would get it if she got him into Hollywood]. Hardy also revealed that he plans to get a large angel-themed portrait on his back based on a pic he took of fiancee Charlotte Riley.
