Dave Bautista is trying again in the beginning of his journey with tattoos.

The 52-year-old actor is famously coated in ink, requiring some further time within the make-up chair when he is filming motion pictures.

During Tuesday’s version of “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” he was pressed about his first tattoo and whether or not he regrets it. The star started his reply with a hearty snigger.

“Yeah. My first tattoo, it was when I was really young and I didn’t want anybody to see it – I especially didn’t want my dad to see it, I didn’t want to get in trouble for getting a tattoo, I was pretty young – it was on my a–,” he recalled.

“I lived with it for years and I got ragged on so much throughout wrestling in the shower, it was like, ‘What’s that on your a–?'” he remembered. “I finally got it covered up I think around 2007.”
