Asia Argento tattooed her right hand knuckles with the names of four of her artistic idols:
- “Joe” is for painter Joe Coleman, who is a friend and collaborator of hers. He has painted portraits of Asia and also acted in her 2000 directorial debut Scarlet Diva.
- “Syd” is for Syd Barrett, a musician and painter who was one of the founding members of Pink Floyd.
- “Moz” is for singer/songwriter Morrissey
- “Bob” is for singer/songwriter Bob Dylan
She got the “Bob” tattoo first in February 2014 and then added the remaining three in April 2014. All of the names were tattooed by artist Michele Agostini.
The “Syd” tattoo serves double duty as it also represents her friend Sydney Zekley. Syd has a tattoo of Asia’s name along the side of her finger.
