Playing a rock star in the film version of TVB's hit TV series "Triumph in the Skies", Sammi Cheng recently expressed admiration for her style in the film, especially the tattoo drawn on her forearm to complete the rock star look.


According to Singtao Daily, the actress, who has begun filming the movie in Sai Ying Pun in the Western District of Hong Kong, showed off her tattoo online and wrote, "In order to create a realistic character, a tattoo has to become a part of it."
