Those are all tattoos that Ryan says he wants, but can’t have them as an actor, says Cianfrance. He thought he should have the most tattoos in movie history. He really wanted a face tattoo. I asked, ‘Are you sure?’ He said, ‘Face tattoos are the best.’ He said, ‘It should be a dagger dripping blood. It’s so tough.’ First day we’re shooting, Ryan pulls me over and says, ‘I think we should lose the face tattoo. It’s too much.’ And I said, ‘That’s what happens with a face tattoo. You regret it.
