  • wenny

    @disqus_pXLp3Tp5H5:disqus
    are there temporarily tattoos or permanent tattoos? couldn’t see them in his recent pics

  • Lucy

    The one on his shoulder is pemanent I am 95% sure, he always covers it with make-up or just you don’t get to see him much in shrits that can show that. Yet it’s not just in one period I saw it covering that part often. Other one …I am not sure but I think both are pemanent
