Melbourne: Actress Sofia Vergara has revealed that late actor Heath Ledger inspired her to get a tattoo on her wrist.

The actress worked with Ledger in skateboarding flick ‘Lords Of Dogtown’ in 2005.

"We had a lot of conversations while we were on the set and during makeup and I got an idea from him," a website quoted Vergara as saying.

"He had a tattoo on his wrist of his sisters` names and after I talked to him I did a tattoo of my brother`s name who passed away," she said.

The 38-year-old actress` brother Rafael was shot dead in Colombia in 1998 during a kidnap attempt, prompting her to flee her homeland with her mother, son, and sister.

Ledger famously had the initials of "his girls" tattooed on his left wrist - KAOS.
