george-clooney-tattooMany people have wondered just how real the tattoos are that George Clooney sports in the film From Dusk Till Dawn.  Most people are broken hearted to learn that George Clooney’s tattoo used in the film is really a temporary tattoo and completely fake. George has no real tattoos in real life, at least none which the public is aware of. However, so many people seem to like the fake tattoo used in the film so much that the popularity of the tribal style of tattoo was partially the result of the film.
In real life, the tattoo is created using a special type of makeup, which is specifically designed to make the tattoo look as real as possible. The design of the tattoo used in the film was so detailed that it was only put on during the actual time that it was going to be filmed. During the times in the film when it was not actually required, the arm tattoo was not used at all.  The tattoo on Clooney’s neck was also applied for only the scenes that captured Clooney on film.

Clooney’s tattoo in the film generated so much interest in tribal style of tattoos that many people ran out in a rush to the tattoo parlors to get a tribal for themselves. Since George Clooney is one of the hottest celebrities in Hollywood, tribal style tattoos became quite popular after the film. Other celebrities have sparked a huge interest in other specific types of tattoo designs before, but the interest usually fades after only a short a while.  In spite of the fact that the film came out in 1996, the tattoo has continued to enjoy an extreme amount of popularity.

Many people are still trying to recreate the tattoo from the film. Although trying to replicate a tattoo from a film is a great form of flattery, the overall results are usually very different.  Regardless of the celebrity, people love to copy their lifestyles. Copying celebrities is an American pastime from the basic haircut to the detailed and intricate tattoo.

Prior to even considering trying to get the exact same tattoo that you saw your favorite film star wearing, you need to consider very carefully what you are getting ready to do. A very talented artist will be required to actually reproduce it correctly, and it will take a lot of money and time to reproduce a celebrity’s tattoo design because they are so detailed. You may want to consider whether that money might be better spent on a design that is more personal, rather than trying to copy someone else’s.

However, there is no doubt that Clooney’s tribal tattoo gives him a rugged and sexy appearance and it’s easy to see why so many people have considered copying the tattoo. Choosing the right tattoo is not something that should be taken lightly. A personal and well designed tattoo will permit you to feel good about yourself and still show off a great unique style that you really appreciate and love.
