Ever since our first viewing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, we have adored and idolized Susan Sarandon as both an actress and an icon. And her recent decision to get the mature woman's version of a tramp stamp on her upper back only serves to heighten our girl crush. Despite being located on her back, the tattoo in question is far from trampy: Sarandon decided to intertwine the first letters of each of her three children's names in sky blue script. As for her reasoning behind the spontaneous ink, "Why not? I turned 60 and after a while you think, 'Well I've only got my body for a few more years anyway'." A closer look at the new tat, and why Susan chose body art over "that burn victim" look other stars go mad for these days, after the jump.
At 61, Susan's complete lack of wrinkles or droopage on her face normally leads to speculation on whether or not she, like so many of her peers, has gone under the knife once or twice. But as she explained to reporters at last month's Speed Racer premiere, "I never say never...It's when people start looking like somebody else, their lips start to get weird, or they are younger looking at 65 than they were at 30 and they have that burn victim terrified look, that's just bad taste." Not to mention the fact that Sarandon has another secret to maintaining her youthful appearance the natural way: "I have a young husband." Oh, Susan. We officially crown you Queen of the Cougars.
