Margot Robbie recently proved that she is an expert at multi-tasking. The actress not only plays “Harley Quinn” in the upcoming “Suicide Squad” movie, but also practicing her tattoo skills. The movie’s director, David Ayer, recently revealed a picture of Robbie inking his arm while in full costume.
Ayer took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to share a snap of Robbie inking his arm with a “Skwad” tattoo, Screen Crush reported. Prior to that, the “Suicide Squad” director also posted an image of an elaborate sign, which read “Harley’s Tattoo Parlour.” For fans wondering what “Skwad” means, the site explained: “You know, because that’s how they spell squad on the streets or something.”
Robbie’s co-star Joel Kinnaman also received the same treatment, this time fellow cast member Will Smith gave the actor his “Skwad” tattoo. According to the Mirror, Kinnaman uploaded a picture on Instagram, which showed Smith’s artwork. He captioned the image, “Got my #skwad tattoo:) Will has many many talents, tattooing is not one of them. It was like watching a drunk baby fly a helicopter. #suicidesquad #willsmith #harleystattooparlour.”
The “Suicide Squad” is said to be a dark movie wherein the film’s director reportedly hired an on-set therapist to prevent his cast from going too deep into their roles. Adam Beach, who plays the character Slipnot, told E!News during the premiere of “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser” late June that Ayer is all about “realism.” He added, "So if your character is tormented, he wants you to torment yourself. He wants the real thing."
The director reportedly wants his cast members to leave their “Suicide Squad” personas on-set and not bring their dark characters home. Beach explained, "We kind of have like a therapist on board if you fall off the wagon and really are villainous. There's a friend of [Ayer's] that's very unique in making sure we have our ground."
Movie fans will get to see just how dark “Suicide Squad” is when it hits movie theaters on Aug. 5, 2016.
