Teen Wolf’s Tyler Posey is downright charming both on-screen and off, as we learned while chatting him up on the Teen Choice Awards red carpet last night. We inquired about his most regrettable moment from the teen years – since, ya know – that’s kind of the theme of both the awards and his TV show on MTV. Turns out Tyler regrets nothing – though he did pause to look back on one moment with a bit of…thoughtful hindsight.
“I don’t really regret anything,” says Tyler. “I try not to. I don’t regret this, but I was 12 years old and I gave myself my first tattoo with a needle and ink. I would always scratch designs on my skin and rub ink on it when I was like 12.”
Tyler then went into great detail explaining how he sterilized a needle to really commit to inking himself, and accidentally marked himself with soot instead of ink. True story. “I think I’m okay, it’s been there for ten years. I’m still here,” he joked. We’re just glad he survived! And kids – definitely don’t try this at home.
