Chris Hemsworth says tattoos are a pain

CHRIS Hemsworth says his tattoos are often "a pain" when he's filming.

The 'Thor' star, who was crowned the Sexiest Man Alive by PEOPLE magazine earlier this week, has a few sentimental designs inked on his body, but admits he hates having to get them covered up on set.

He said: "They're a pain to cover up when you shoot a movie. It's, like, an hour of makeup."

The Australian heartthrob, who has daughter India, two, and seven-month-old twin boys, Sasha and Tristan, with Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, says all of his tattoos have been inspired by them to date.

He told PEOPLE magazine: "I have the initials of my family here. [Points to this right forearm] And I have a Dr. Seuss character from 'Oh, The Places You'll Go' right here [Touches his left biceps]. It's a book I read to my daughter."

Asked if he plans to get any more, he said: "Maybe."

Meanwhile, the 31-year-old star claims his daughter has him wrapped around her little finger.

He said: "Oh, yeah. Both of us. We'll say, 'Okay, that's it. no more ice cream.' And she's like, 'Gelato? Ice cream?' And she pretends to lick an ice cream, and I'm like, 'Oh, she's just too cute.' Then she goes crazy because of the sugar, so it backfires."
