Tom Hardy's Tattoos from the 'Esquire Magazine' Cover — Dissected

Try using the arrow keys

I don't know if you heard, but Tom Hardy, hideous creature masquerading as a man of vim and vigor, is on the cover of the new Esquire Magazine. And in it, on full display for all the world to see, are his myriad tattoos. Did you know Tom Hardy has a lot of tattoos? He does! It's true! And I know this because we are in love*, so we have intimate knowledge of his permadoodles.

Thankfully, with all of it on display in such an out-there fashion, it makes it easy for me to break down what each one represents and means. Don't say I've never done anything of service, folks.

* (be "we are in love" I mean "we are in love *coughcough* in my dreams *coughcough* because I am a kind and selfless person, one of a kind in my ability to admire such a truly grotesque and misshapen creature such as he." I'm the Belle to his Beast, no big deal.)
