Charlie Hunnam is widely known for his portrayal of Jax Teller on hit T.V show 'Sons of Anarchy´.

And of course with the show about an outlaw motorcycle gang tattoos were a feature from the beginning, only Hunnam almost took his dedication to his characters tattoos to new levels.

The character of Jax has a prominent tattoo of a gravestone on his forearm, and it was this tattoo Hunnam considered getting:

"At the early part of the show, I actually thought maybe I would have it tattooed on me," he noted. "Thankfully my girlfriend convinced me that that would not be a good idea. I love the image of it and would happily have it on my arm, but it's just a pain in the ass getting tattoos covered for work."

Interestingly the memorial tattoo of Jax Teller was inspired by a real life biker Hunnam met, and whom already had a memorial tattoo of a fellow biker. In the case of Jax the tattoo is a memorial for his father;

"I wanted to have some kind of memorial to [his] father, John Teller, because in the show that character - although you never get to meet him - is a huge, important character on the show and a huge part of Jax's life and journey,"
