Swedish actress Noomi Rapace has vowed never to have a tattoo inked on her skin as she fears it would limit her chances of Hollywood success.
Rapace shot to fame playing a computer hacker in the Swedish production of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in 2009, but she's adamant she will always avoid having body art in case it affects her hopes of future roles.
But there's one drastic image change she was happy to undertake - the numerous piercings she sported in the movie were real.
Rapace tells S magazine, "I can't tattoo myself - I must be a chameleon. I have to change the way I look for different characters... (But) those (piercings) were real. They said I could have fake ones, but I didn't want to. I wanted to feel those piercings."
