Alex O’Loughlin’s Tattoos Continues – Let’s decorate “dat ass”

In the movie FEED we get the only real view of this beautiful behind. But that was made a long time ago. Now we know that there are a lot more ink either on or surrounding this bum and hips! 😀

FEED – 2004

In April 2011 we saw the first glimpses of what was added to the old tattoo.

Jogging in Hawaii – April 2011

Notice in some areas, the lines of the old tattoo are still visible.

From photo’s of the GQ magazine photo shoot we saw more of what the sides of the tattoo looks like.

Here we can see the colours better and also what the sides looks like while he is lying down.

And in May 2012 we got the wrap-around view while standing up.

The latest addition to the glimpses we have available is from this BTS photo taken in August 2012.

August 2012

Some people believe this is a separate tattoo, but I believe it to be just an extension of the rest of the back/butt tattoo.

Alex O’Loughlin – Is he brave or just a “girl” like Danno? – An Update

We have had such a lot of interest in our first post  in regards to Steve injecting himself, that we decided to do a follow-up with all the new detail we came across while intensifying our study.

Two weeks ago in Hawaii-Five-0 Episode 3:04, we saw the now famous injection scene where Steve gives himself a tetanus shot. We asked ourselves the first and big question of whether it was actually Alex “ injecting” himself?

We started of  by breaking this scene down in two parts and to see what we have:
1. We have a shot of Steve from the other side of the table where Danny is standing. We see Steve pulling his pants and shirt away and give himself the injection. He is not showing a lot of skin at all.

2. Then we see a close up shot of him injecting himself and his pants pulled down quite a lot further than in the previous shot. (Yummy!)

We want you to look closely at the first scene. Where is he injecting himself? Please be aware that the photo’s are not good quality because we had to zoom in quiet a bit:

Not only did we see that Steve “injected” himself on the hip bone very much to the front, but it also looks like Alex was using protection (like any wise man should) Can you see it?

A blue film like thingy at the front of the needle. And not only that, there seems to be a square like flesh coloured plaster on the spot as well – making doubly sure of protecting himself. (Maybe the plaster irritated him a bit and left that red mark on his hip we see later on?)

Let’s move on to the close up shot where he is injecting himself on the bum this time.

Have a closer look at the two pictures below. Take into account that we think he got a bit manscaped for the injection shot and that the two pictures are not taken from the same angle. (The picture on the left was taken from the front and we had to zoom in quiet a lot, while the picture on the right is more from the side)

Have a look at where the blue arrow is pointing. Is it possible that we seeing the same “scar” or mark on both pictures?

Then there is also the question about the hand. Is it really Alex’s hand? Thanks to ‘Amberrocks’ for pointing us in the right direction!

In the top right photo, you see the hand from the injection scene. Look at the “line” we highlighted running across the first finger. That “line” seems to be the vein running across Alex’s finger as shown in the other pictures. We believe that it is a good indication that it was in fact Alex’s own hand.

Alex O’Loughlin – Is he brave or just a “girl” like Danno?

Have you ever gone out to proof something that you feel rather sure of and ended up feeling that you are in fact wrong?!

Last week in Hawaii-Five-0 Episode 3:04, we saw the now famous injection scene where Steve gives himself a tetanus shot. First and biggest question, what did we see? Was it actually Alex injecting himself?

My first reaction was – Of course not, Alex has this very large tattoo right on the spot where he is injecting himself. Surely if it is him, then they must have appointed a new genius person doing the cover-ups for the tattoos, because this is too good to be true! And if they covered it up, why did they leave that prominent red scar there anyway?

Let’s start by breaking this scene down in two parts and see what we have:
1. We have a shot of Steve from the other side of the table where Danny is standing. We see Steve pulling his pants and shirt away and give himself the injection. He is not showing a lot of skin at all.

2. Then we see a close up shot of him injecting himself and his pants pulled down quite a lot further than in the previous shot. (Showing  some lovely veins and the right side of that beautiful V-line men have! *sigh*)

We want you to look closely at the first scene. Where is he injecting himself?

To us it looks like it is on the hip bone very much to the front and not on his bum. Reason for this is that it is actually very difficult to give yourself a shot on the bum and not look silly (I know because I have actually given it myself an injection like that).

Let’s move on to the close up shot where he is injecting himself on the bum this time. The thing we want you to notice is that red scar. (That scar was going to be our proof that it was NOT him! 😀 )

Our theory:
1. It is his body because that red scar is actually the mark where Alex gave himself the shot in the far off angle shot. The mark looks even worse than it might have been, because of the make-up they applied to that spot to cover the tattoo. It probably caused some irritation. Do you think that makes sense?

2. I had serious doubts that the hand that gives him the shot, is actually his own. The reason I say this is that the angle of the arm is very flat and for him to achieve this, he will have to bend backwards very far and his hip will look twisted. If you don’t believe me, take something in your hand and do the motion of injecting yourself. But I once again revised my theory and now believe he gave himself the shot after I studied his hand on the far away shot and the similarities to the close-up shot.

Big question now – what about that very large and very dark tattoo that he has on that very same spot?

Take a look at where that tattoo is supposed to be. Those little waves end right where that “scar” is and the rest of the tattoo runs down the hip in a straight line.

Added to clarify my comparison on the above photo.

Do we maybe see some orange markings there? We know the tattoo cover make-up normally looks orange don’t we? This is also shot indoors and not in the bright sunlight of the outdoors that makes his “tattoo make-up” look even worse.

And of course the triangle-shaped darker spot in the area where the needle enters, is definitely the shadow of his hand (That is about the only thing we are 100% sure of :smile:)

So here is your chance to vote and comment on your thoughts about it. Did we give you enough evidence to believe it is him or not?

Just a last thought – Those make-up people at H5-0 are surely the luckiest people on the Island!

Alex O’Loughlin – You searched for him and you got us……

One of our fellow bloggers (Westy) started doing stories from all the searches that landed people at her blog (Westy’s Champ Box). These stories are extremely funny and real fun to read. And I must say, from what she wrote, her blog seems like one of the most interesting and fun places to visit.

If you look at our searches, it does not look like we have nearly that much fun over here :grin:, but it still warms my heart to read them in any case. One of my aims was that if anybody searches the Net for Alex O’Loughlin’s tattoos that they would get us. I am happy to see we are #1 #2 and 3#, when you do. We really hope that people who did get us, are satisfied with what they got. Most of the searchers just asked for his tattoos, while others posted the question whether they are real. A lot of people want to know what they mean and lately some wonder why they look so faded in H5-0.

Yes, his ink is definitely real, sometimes they add and sometimes they cover them for different roles. Alex have said that they all mean something to him, but that everyone needs some secrets. They look definitely more faded on the show than in real life and there can be a number of reasons for it. If you haven’t read our story on it  yet, please  find it here: Alex O’Loughlin’s Tattoos (part 1,2 &3)

If you still have questions about his tattoos that we did not cover in the research, please let us know and we would gladly help out where we do know the answers and if we do not, will try to find them with you.

We decided to provide some visuals to some of the searches that brought people to us:

  • sexie beast

As Mick St John, Alex is definitely Beauty and one sexy Beast all in one!

  •  tumblr photography broken heart

Are you a heart breaker of a heart fixer, Alex?

  • alex o’loughlin veins

Oh yes. This man provides us with some utterly nice vein sights… *sigh*

  • alex o’loughlin wooden

Shake that ass baby….There´s nothing wooden about Alex, we have numerous sightings from the set (also thankfully some recorded) telling us, he can shake his ass 😉

  • alex o loughlin shirtless

We have so many shirtless moments on the blog, but we just had to add it again!

  • why do they cover up some of alex o’loughlin’s tattoos on hawaii five-0


Wonderful question. We would also like to know?

Maybe it is good that they separate Alex and the characters he plays, in this instance Steve, from one another by changing what his body looks like in real life. He is after all not a Navy SEAL in real life and the producers might feel that the ink he has got is not necessarily suitable symbols or in good areas for someone playing the part of a military professionals.

Just something interesting I have read recently and might be a factor on why his nipple tattoo’s are covered – “Gecko’s are believed to hold supernatural powers. It was thought to bring back luck and bad omen. It was feared by most Polynesians. It is said to bring on illness.”

  • alex o’loughlin lips

This lip touching of him ….sigh….where was I?

I taste delicious! Yummy!

Watching this, I can actually feel those lips touching mine…..

 (Well his lips are so gorgeous, we couldn’t do just one picture! 😀 )

  • alex o’loughlin nose

The limelight can be hard on you…..

  • alex o’loughlin nose job

One perfect face, with one perfect nose attached, but since when…birth? 😉

(Somebody asked me this very same question a while back and I have done an “intense study” to find any evidence of a nose job. I must be honest it really doesn’t look like there has been any work done on his nose. My personal observation: Alex’s nose has got this tendency to look very different in shape and in size in different light and by the angles of photo’s taken.)

  • alex o’loughlin crotch

Is there any explanation needed?
This shot won our cargo´s poll, go figure….

  • why does alex o’loughlin drink too much water

Help, I need some more water….Alex, you are not fooling anyone. This is the reason why you desperately need your water the day after *wink*.

Even with something as mundane as drinking water, he manages to look sensual…..

  • alex o loughlin love at first sight

Was not really the first time they saw each other…but this first kiss always gets me….sigh

  • large photo of alex oloughlin nipples

He´s got tiny nipples, hope the picture is big enough. Until we get 3D, this is what you get. Pretty nice view even like this…mmmmm…

  • alex o’loughlin pregnant

Shall we guess how far along he is?

  • the dude alex o loughlin

Yes, this is a dude, showing off 😉

  • alex o’loughlin arm broken

Injured Steve tends to look even sexier….is that possible?

There has been a lot of confusion about Alex’s “broken”  arm. Fact is Steve did “break” his arm on an episode in Season 1 of Hawaii Five-o and they also kept the cast on him for the episode directly after that. I actually find it quite good that they do carry these kind of injuries from one episode to the next. However I do not know of any incident where he broke his arm in real life, since he has been in public life.

I think the confusion mainly started because there is also a pictures of him and a fan where he wears a cast on his arm, that was taken on the set of Hawaii Five-0.

(To the fan on the picture – please let us know if you don’t approve of us using this beautiful photo of you and Alex.)

  • alex o’loughlin surfing

So this is what they call surfing? 😉

One of the pictures I would pay real hard cash for to get my hands on, is Alex surfing.!Even better will be live action footage!! We have seen a lot of pictures of Scott surfing, but unfortunately none of Alex….maybe he is just lying about the surfing thing 😉

  • alex o’loughlin secret

Boy oh boy, wouldn’t we all want to know his secret…for being so gorgeous of course.

  • alex oloughlin bargins yours dull secret.

Well, who knows…maybe Alex´s dull secret is his love for those puka dogs. And he´s offering a bite for friends too. Such a sweetheart 🙂

  • kill me gif

I think he is killing us with laughter, what a guy. Bless him 😉

  • alex o’loughlin sensual

Perhaps his sensual nature at best, when posing for a photo shoot. Just look at him working that face…Mamma Mia!

  • alex o’loughlin scars

We did a story on the scars that are added onto Alex for his role as Steve in  Hawaii Five-0: Alex O’Loughlin the Undercover Vampire Navy SEAL

The only real scars that I know of on Alex that are regularly visible, is the tiny scar he has on the front of his right shoulder. It has been there since before FEED. The other scars visible on his body is the tiny piercing marks on his ears and brows. There also seems to be some scars on his legs…..but alas we do not get to see those legs nearly often enough to report on them…..

Real scar

We hope you enjoyed this post full of all Alex. After all this is what we are about. We love it if you enjoy all his different sides with us! Mahalo for your support over the last three months. It has been a thrill ride for us. 🙂

That naughty smile…who can resist?
Thank you Alex, for helping us 😀

Please remember to hover over the pictures with your mouse for some extra fun. 😉

Alex O’Loughlin’s Tattoos (Part 1) – What is real and what is not?

206 tattoos

Man, tattoos are cool! They’re something that started in the folly of youth and there’s been a progression ever since.

Alex O’Loughlin, GQ Australia, November 2011

There I was in 2011, watching The Back-Up Plan for the first time on Television. Needless to say, the leading man fascinated me – Alex O’Loughlin. Who was he? Why haven’t I heard of him before? Did he just appear out of thin air, or has he done anything else worth watching?

Some days I think, maybe I  should have just left it there and not explored any further! Now I just can’t stop my need to know even more about him ……… Anybody else have that same problem? 😆

As soon as I started watching his other work, I found myself in total confusion about all of his tattoos. Different tattoos and different versions of tattoos appeared. So there I was, not a real big lover of tattoos, wondering what is real and what is not?

This is what I saw in Oyster Farmer:

OF-Jack-dressing-pantsOF-Jack-wet-undies-tatts

 Something else I was not big on, was surfing the internet, looking up celebrities and making friends out of strangers on the internet. Well the rest is history and here I am writing a story on Alex’s tattoos for the internet, together with a friend I have never met in person, who lives thousands of miles away.

Up until today I haven’t found a good understandable answer to this very first question of mine – How many tattoos does Alex have and what do they look like? So this is my gift to any new fans looking for answers about the body art and hopefully some of the old fans will also enjoy just looking at all once more.

The Real Tattoos:

There are  five (5) tattoos clearly visible on Alex  at the moment I am writing this. One on each of his biceps, one above each of his nipples and one on his lower back, that wraps around his hips and is visible from the front. (Also read Part 2 & Part 3 where we explore them further)

1 May 2012. Photos: Splash

 

BTS photo’s of 3:03 Filmed August 2012. Thanks to @MyMaximus, as always you are the Genie of New Pictures!

From this behind the scenes picture filmed during August 2012, it looks like not only does the new Back Tattoo wrap around to the front, it also extends down the thigh. My guess would be that it has been there since the Tattoo has been redone in 2011.

Whatever else he has hidden in some dark private corners of his body, I can unfortunately not report on.  😥

The Faded Tattoos:

In the past he used to have two more tattoos that have been removed and are now faded. Sometimes glimpses of their existence are still there to be seen. There used to be one on each of his forearms as seen in these pictures.

The Added/ Temporary Tattoos:

Some of the confusion about his tattoos may arise from the fact that for certain characters he played, it was deemed necessary to add even more tattoos.

Please remember these tattoos are all fake.

  • The biggest and most prominent one was for ‘FEED’. A beautiful cross on Michael’s back.

  • For ‘The Invisible, a swallow on Marcus’s neck.

inv-marcus-neck-tatt

  • Also for The Invisible, some words written on the left side of his abdomen. (It looks like 4 names underneath each other)

inv-tatt-abdomen

inv-marcus-fake-tatt-ribs

 

(Thank you to Mary from the old .org site for providing the information about the abdomen tattoos 🙂 )

  • And another one from ‘The Invisible‘ – some sort of weird symbol at the back of Marcus’s head
  • And for ‘BlackJack: Sweet Science’ Luke needed a little cross on his neck.

To be honest, I am glad these were only temporary tattoos and were just added for those roles – but then again anything looks good on this man and we will most probably accept anything he adds.

This is not where our story ends, because for specific roles they cover up some or all of his tattoos and we explore that further in our next post.

We continue our research here  with all the cover-ups and maybe find some hidden treasures as well…….
