The dashing star of X-Men, The Lord of The Rings, and Gods and Monsters recently revealed he has a single sentimental tattoo inked on his skin. The distinguished actor and iconic LGBT rights activist Sir Ian McKellen got the tattoo as a reminder of the magical and meaningful collaboration of artists for the Lord of The Rings feature films.

"It's of the number 9 in Elvish, because there are nine members in the Fellowship of the Ring," Sir Ian explained of the lone body art. "Elijah Wood was holding my hand the entire time," he added.

Aw!
