Charlie Sheen has been getting quite a lot of attention lately. He’s recently introduced us to his two 24-year-old “goddesses” (aka girlfriends), he talked trash about John Stamos taking over his role in Two and a Half Men, and now he’s sporting a new tattoo.
Thinking about tattoo ideas, he finally came up with one that he put on his chest – a quote from his father’s, Martin Sheen’s, epic war film “Apocalypse Now.”
He recently described the new tattoo: block letters reading, “Death from above,” with blood dripping onto an apple. He explains that the tattoo design is a metaphor for his own life.
“It’s the banner from the death card that Kilgore [from "Apocalypse Now"] is throwing on his victims, but there’s also falling from it, is the apple from “The Giving Tree…There’s my life. Deal with it. Oh, wait, can’t process it? Losers. Winning. Buh bye,” he told the “Alex Jones Show.”
Sheen said that he got the tattoo as he watched his father’s 1979 Vietnam War film in his private theater.
“You have the right to kill me, but you do not have the right to judge me,” he said, quoting Marlon Brando’s character from the film, Col. Kurtz. “Boom. That’s the whole movie. That’s life.”
If you ask me, that tattoo looks a little cheap for a multi-million dollar celebrity to be flaunting!
