All actors have their own way of prepping for a role, but there are not quite a lot of actors who have taken it as far as the Daytime Emmy Award winner Shia LeBeouf. The 34-year-old actor took the preparation for his upcoming film to another level after he got his whole chest tattooed to portray his character authentically. He will be seen essaying the role of a Cholo gangster in his upcoming crime thriller titled The Tax Collector.

Shia LaBeouf tattooed his whole chest for a film

The American actor took the internet by storm after being spotted having a jog in Southern California on Saturday. Shia flaunted his fully tattooed torso as he opted to go shirtless for an exercise in LA. He was snapped rocking hot pink athletic shorts along with black sneakers, above the ankle white socks and what seemed to be a t-shirt, tucked into his waistband. 

The Echo Park native has permanently branded his abdomen area with his character Creeper's name over the tattoo of two Mickey Mouse gloves, which represents his own past with Disney Channel. If you take a closer look at his ink, it reveals depictions of his mother cradling a clown, which represents his estranged father Jeffrey Craig LaBeouf's past as a rodeo clown.
