# 8. Mickey Rourke
Mickey Rourke was a body art enthusiast back in the day, long before tattoos had the mainstream popularity that they do now. He was in fact, one of the very first actors we listed on Celebrity Tattoos fifteen years ago. Rourke resurrected his waning acting career with a tour de force, Oscar-nominated performance in, The Wrestler. That work landed him roles in a number of high profile Hollywood productions, such as the Ironman and The Expendables series. In the expendables, Rourke even plays a scene while he works as a tattoo artist. He recently added to his collection of ink with some Celtic designs.
