If you thought David Beckham’s tattoo collection was extensive, you’ve got to see Ruby Rose’s full-body ink, because the Orange Is the New Black star just added another permanent design into the mix — and it’s truly a work of art.
The 30-year-old Australian actress debuted a brand-new back tattoo — an extensive colour chart reminiscent of the swatches found in the paint section of home improvement stores — on Instagram Monday evening, and it might just be one of her most detailed designs yet.
“Guys, Home Depot is trying to save paper.. So now you can order me and I will stand facing your wall until you pick the color you like,” she quipped in the caption. “I’ll even stand facing the wall as you have breakfast and as you’re watching tv at night so you can see the colors at different times. Offer limited. Conditions apply.”
She concluded: “*this is a completely false ad.”
While we’re not sure if there’s a hidden, sentimental meaning behind the colorful, Pantone-inspired chart, the expansive back art marks one of the few dozen tattoos in Rose’s ever-growing collection, which she previously told PeopleStyle she’s lost count of years ago.
“The funny thing about tattoos is that you get one, or two, or three, or four or 10, and when you first get them they’re all separate and separate enough from each other that they can be counted individually,” she previously told PeopleStyle. “I think at one point, I had 50 or 60 tattoos, but then they all morphed to become a half sleeve, and then a full sleeve and then I sleeve with half my hand, and then half my back. So I have so many now where I feel like I can get away with saying, ‘I have three tattoos.'”

But no matter the count — three, four or 100, Rose said each work of art is symbolic in its own way, and she plans on continuing her ink collection until she runs out of canvas.
“It’s not like I have one specific one that I like better than any of the others, but they all serve a purpose,” she shared. “My body is a canvas and it’s like I have a journal from [when I was] 16 to now, and I can trace a timeline of my life from where I’ve been — the ups and the downs, the trials and tribulations and all that I’ve overcome to get to where I am today — by looking at this map on my body. And if I didn’t have that, I would forget a lot of things, and I’m glad I don’t and can’t forget.”
