It might have been Christian Grey who says the memorable quote that inspired the 50 Shades of Grey title (“I’m 50 shades of f*cked up.”), but it seems Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele in the trilogy, can relate. She just got the most perfectly imperfect new tattoo — and here’s the reason why.
Celeb tattoo artist Brian Woo (the same mastermind behind Sarah Hyland’s new symbolic body art) created Johnson’s new ink of a wilting daisy done.
The LA artist also known as Dr. Woo captioned a photo of Johnson’s new design, “A little #egonschiele for @dakotajohnson. ‘It’s a lil’ f*cked up, but it’s still a flower, like me.’” The image was drawn by Austrian painter Egon Schiele, who was known for his “twisted” naked self-portraits.
It’s not Johnson’s first time in the parlor chair: As of 2015, the 50 Shades Freed star had inked the word “Amor” on the back of her neck (her mother, Melanie Griffith, has the same one), and “Acta Not Verba” (Latin for “Deeds Not Words”) on the inside of her arm.
She also has a trio of birds on her shoulder, a small piece behind her ear, and one on her foot which reads, “Look at the moon.”
