Unconventional Susan shows off new body art

7 MAY 2008
When she stepped out to an LA screening of her latest flick Speed Racer recently, Susan Sarandon revealed she's joined the current body art craze by having two tattoos inked onto her body.

One, a ten-inch chain of initials, dips down her spine from the nape of her neck. The other, a slender 'bracelet' affair, girds her wrist.

The gothic lettering initials refer to the Thelma And Louise star's children - sons Jack and Miles with partner Tim Robbins, and daughter Eva Amurri from a previous relationship.

"It's on my back so I don't see it, but I know they are always there," the 61-year-old actress says.

Her daughter is also represented by the delicate tattoo around her wrist, which reads 'E' and 'A'.

Speaking of her decision to go under the tattooist's needle, the glamorous star said: "Why not? I turned 60, and after a while you think, 'Well I've only got my body for a few more years anyway."
