Josh Hutcherson is hooked on ink. The hunky "Hunger Games" star, 21, is already tattooed with the Libra astrological sign on his wrist, an anchor on his left side and a nautical scene between his shoulder blades, but if the mega-star had his way, he'd get inked in many more visible places. "If I weren't an actor, I would have tattoos covering every inch of my body," Hutcherson told Us Weekly of his love for body art.
First getting inked at age 17 -- with his mom's consent -- the actor is forced to spend an extra 90 minutes in the makeup chair getting his dye covered up for Peeta Mellark's shirtless scenes in "The Hunger Games" film franchise.
Keeping his hot bod in shape by playing basketball five days a week in a variety of leagues, the Union, Ky., native is no stranger to having his chiseled physique eyed by female costars and fans, but the one woman he has eyes for his actress Claudia Traisac, whom he met while filming the upcoming thriller "Paradise Lost."
"I'm a hopeless romantic! Hutcherson explains. "But I'm not one to have my feelings and then not do anything about it. I always seem to find a way to show how I feel. I can be quiet and reserved with my friends, but when I need to, I can be big and entertaining."
