We're not sure what's sexier: Tom Hardy's tattoos or his smokin' body. Tom Hardy's tats honor the people in his life that are most important to him, and remind him of how far he's come in the entertainment industry. Hardy has at least 18 tattoos, each with a special meaning or memory. Similar to other stars that have tattoos, such as Johnny Depp or Nelly, Tom Hardy has made headlines several times when he's added a new tattoo to his collection. He is one of the hottest tattooed celebrities and famous people with tattoos

Some of Tom's tattoos represent his former lovers, while others are in honor of his family. He has two tattoos of phrases in Italian: "figlio mio bellissimo" ("my beautiful son") on his right arm and "padre fiero" ("proud father") under his clavicle. Other tattoos include tribal patterns, the Union Jack, a theatrical mask a crow, and the infamous leprechaun on his right bicep.
