Sheen has appeared in numerous films and has been gracing the world with his presence in Acting, Songwriting, Screenwriting, Film production, and lately a career in Standup Comedy. Charlie Sheen has picked up a notoriety for being a Hollywood “bad boy” through his wild lifestyle. Charlie’s fiance is not fond of few of his inks and he has already planned to get some of them removed in future. According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the once hard-partying actor doesn’t remember getting some of the tats, like the stingray on his left ankle or the dragon wearing glasses. A tat of a wooden sign nailed to his chest above his heart reads, ‘Back in 15 minutes.’ He has an estimated 13 plus tattoos plastered over his body.

But somehow, when it was finished at six in the morning, the design had been supplanted by the wooden sign.
