Shia LaBeouf about his 1986-2004 wrist tattoo: "A lot of people who have been working a lot of their life, (I've been doing this for 10 years), a lot of people say, 'Oh, I forgot my childhood or I miss my childhood.' 1986 to 2004, so that's just precautionary."
Shia LaBeouf on the tattoo on his side: "It's an art piece that I've seen many years ago. It's always been a cool visual for me. It's kind of how it feels too. You know you do put yourself... because you always talk about the stardom or what not and the more you do this, then the more successful you are. You're entrapping yourself, you know, because regardless of if you want to be a personality or not, that's part of the game, so that sort of represents that to me a little bit."
