Franco fakes it: James Franco Neck Tattoo, When James Franco posted an Instagram of himself (not new) with a brand new neck tattoo of Emma Watson’s face and “Emma” (very new), his fans couldn’t figure out if it was real or not, and more importantly-if they’re dating or not.
But Franco, who knows exactly who he’s clowning with at all times (all of us), even credited the artist who created it, @indiangiver, Cheyenne Randall, who Photoshops elaborately detailed tattoo landscapes over some of history’s most iconic actors: Elizabeth Taylor adorned with a beautiful butterfly on her neck, over a bald eagle’s wide wings. Marilyn Monroe with colored flowers on her kneecaps. Johnny Cash with “Promised Land” fake-inked above his steely brows. Even Princess Diana, rocking a full arm sleeve. “It’s not a super original idea,” Randall said on the phone from his home in Seattle. “My favorite artists, like Mike Giant, have been drawing tattoos on people for years. We love fantasy, escapism, ‘what if?’ This is my version of a parallel universe, to see what these people would have looked like had they been born in a different time.”
It all started in April 2013, when Randall, after a treacherous jump off a diving board, was on bed rest after blowing out his knee. Bored and inspired by painkillers, he had just watched One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and wanted to know what Jack Nicholson would look like fully tatted-up. So he played in Photoshop, and posted it to his account, which had just a few thousand followers. The response on Instagram was huge, so he kept doing it, and now his account has grown to over 100,000 followers. Franco took notice after Randall shopped Lana Del Ray onto that famous image of Franco kissing himself in a mirror in a New York Times video, and reached out to Randall about more work, including his latest author photo.
