Suicide Squad star Joel Kinnaman learned the hard way that you probably shouldn’t allow a co-worker to give you a tattoo.

The actor recently appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, where he revealed how much he regrets letting his Suicide Squad co-star Will Smith loose with a tattoo gun. The cast of the 2016 Warner Bros. film famously (or perhaps infamously) got matching “SKWAD” tattoos to commemorate their work together. But now Kinnaman thinks that may have been a bad idea.
Kinnaman was all smiles in a 2015 photo that captured Smith at work (although in the caption, the actor acknowledged, “Will has many many talents, tattooing is not one of them”). But when asked on Watch What Happens Live, he acknowledged he regretted the tattoo: “The answer is yes. Absolutely. That was a horrible idea.”
“You know, don’t let a 47-year-old man without his reading glasses tattoo you,” Kinnaman added “That is the life lesson.”
Despite that regret, he admitted he received exactly what he asked for in the end. “It’s supposed to be a shitty tattoo,” he said, “so that’s what it is.”
Suicide Squad 2 is expected to see return Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. No release date has been announced, but the film is believed to begin production this fall.
