Christina Ricci talks about her lion tattoo: "It's Aslan, the lion from The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe. It's a symbol of my hellish childhood.

Christina Ricci has confessed her love for tattoos, but knows that being an actress in Hollywood you have to be careful where you get your tattoos. As of right now all her tattoos are in places that can be covered up fairly easily. Because a lot of time producers in movies do not like their actress's to be covered in tattoos, because it is a pain to have to cover them up with make up if their clothes do not cover them up. However, Christina is hoping that she will become super famous one day so she can get a tattoo on her arm. - infinitietattoos.com
"I can't wait until I'm super-famous. I'm at the point when I should really hide them, because directors don't like them. When I'm really, really super famous, I'm going to get one on my arm - because nobody cares then." Ricci's remaining tattoos consist of a Fairy on the inside of her right wrist, praying hands on her left hip, which used to be a bat. The words "Move or Bleed" on her left side. The name Jack on her right thigh as a memorial to a dead pet. A blue sparrow on her right breast and a mermaid on her left ankle.
