Ryan Reynolds is a well-known Canadian actor, producer, and entrepreneur who has appeared in films such as Deadpool, Green Lantern, and Pokémon: Detective Pikachu. Reynolds has tattoos on different regions of his body, although he claimed in a 2015 interview with The New Yorker that he dislikes them.
Reynolds and His tattoos
Reynolds has tattoos on both his wrist and his right leg. On the side of his left wrist, the actor sports a cannon tattoo. The cannon, known as the Nine O’clock Gun, is located in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada, and is fired every day at 9 p.m. Another tattoo on the 44-year-old actor’s left wrist has a significant significance. His second tattoo, ‘Know Thyself,’ is inscribed on the inside of his wrist.
Reynolds got it done to help him remain grounded and remember who he is when the cameras are turned off. In addition to his wrist tattoos, The Deadpool actor has other tattoos on his right leg. Reynolds was seen with his leg tattoos while on vacation with his wife (and fellow actress) Blake Lively and friend (and singer) Taylor Swift. Several quotations are inscribed on his thigh, coupled with a’six of hearts’ playing card. A dance-related statement in a British typeface near his calf completes the tattoos on Reynolds’ leg.
His Tattoo on His Chest
Reynolds shared an Instagram selfie with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson after his surprise appearance in Hobbs & Shaw. Both actors are seen in the video sitting next to one other, lifting their shirts from their collars to exhibit their tattoos. Johnson’s tattoos are genuine, while Reynolds’ is not. Reynolds joked in his post that he was disappointed to learn this. The two stars discussion continued, with Johnson commenting on the post.
He joked that if Reynolds pulled his shirt up to display the tattoo, he’d look cool and attractive, but that wasn’t the case for him.
Reynolds Despises His Tattoos
The actor admitted in an interview with The New Yorker that he despises all of his tattoos. During the interview, he kept his ‘Know Thyself’ tattoo on the inside of his left wrist hidden. Referring to the six hearts card tattoo on his thigh, he said that such tattoos made sense in movies like Mississippi Grind, a gambling flick.
The actor who wishes to get his tattoos removed said that the only thing preventing him from doing so is the “hours and hours of horrible suffering.” He also said that his wife, Lively, advised him to maintain the tattoos as a reminder of his decisions. Reynolds also claimed that concealing his tattoos with cosmetics may take up to three hours.
