Los Angeles: It seems Ryan Gosling has turned to body art to showcase his love for his daughter. The actor was spotted with `Esme` - which is short for Esmeralda -- written onto his knuckles.
The `inking` sent his fans into a tizzy with a speculation -- whether it was a tattoo or just a doodle.
The actor, who welcomed his first child with Eva Mendes in September last year, was spotted with the name across his knuckles here on Friday, reports mirror.co.uk.
However, it`s still unknown whether the tribute is a permanent tattoo or not. The lettering, while readable, was thin and could be a quick doodle before he left the house.
Meanwhile, Gosling looked casual during the outing in a black leather jacket, jeans and a white T-shirt. He completed the look with a colourful baseball cap and black hood pulled up over his head.
