Joel Kinnaman rethinking letting Will Smith give him that Suicide Squad tattoo

Way back in 2015, the cast of Suicide Squad took to Instagram to show off their matching "SKWAD" tattoos, given on the set to commemorate their appearance in the 2016 DCEU film. Apparently the cast thought it'd be a good idea to give each other the tattoos, rather than going to a professional. Joel Kinnaman, aka Rick Flag, is now rethinking that plan.

Back then, Kinnaman was at least apprehensive about castmate Will Smith's (Deadshot) tattoo skills. Despite big smiles, he captioned his photo, "Will has many many talents, tattooing is not one of them. It was like watching a drunk baby fly a helicopter."

Three years later, and Kinnaman full-on regrets the tattoo. While appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, a caller asked Kinnaman if he regrets the tattoo, and what his wife thinks about it. You can see his answer at about the 6:40 mark of the video below...

Kinnaman's response:

“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. That is the life lesson. Especially when you have a very talented wife. It's supposed to be a sh**ty tattoo."

Kinnaman's wife, Cleo Wattenström, is a professional tattoo artist. Though he doesn't elaborate on her opinion of the matter, you can imagine the look on her face when he came home with that thing.

It sounds like Kinnaman won't be lining up for a SKWAD2 tattoo when Suicide Squad 2 starts shooting this fall (supposedly), readying for a 2019 release.
