‘Blindspot’ Star Jaimie Alexander Having Terrible Fish Tattoo Removed
Blindspot star Jaimie Alexander is in the process of having one of her nine real tattoos lasered off because her skin art expert screwed up with the needle. The actress, who plays heavily-tattooed Jane Doe in hit NBC TV series Blindspot, admits she never liked the fish on her forearm which was tattooed to symbolize her star sign Pisces. Now she’s slowly having it zapped.
The reason that Alexander has had to draw out the procedure is because she didn’t want to upset her TV bosses, who want her to look like a tattooed heroine on the small screen. “I’m getting a massive fish I had tatted on my arm, I’m getting it off,” she told Access Hollywood Live, showing off her dull scar. “It takes a long time because you can’t cover it when you get it done, so because I’m in Jane’s tats all the time I really can’t get a full laser removal, because it’ll get infected. The guy I had do it just really sucked” she continued. Meanwhile, Alexander admitted she is impressed by the way make-up artists on the set of her new hit TV drama work with her real body of art to add new tattoos that serve as clues to her character’s past. “They were really great about designing her tattoos around my own,” she added.
