Washington: Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling’s attempt to tattoo himself with a monster’s hand with a bloody heart turned out looking like a cactus.

‘The Notebook’ actor wanted to tattoo himself on his left arm but the result did not turned out as planned

“One of my tattoos is supposed to be a monster’s hand dropping a bloody heart but I did it myself with a tattoo kit so it looks like a cactus,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

Even though he failed in his attempt to tattoo himself, the Canadian went on to get more ink work done on his body including the cover of children’s book ‘The Giving Tree’ on his left upper arm, which reminded him of his mother and sister.
