That looks painful! Shirtless Zac Efron puts on a brave face as he gets another tattoo
He used to have a clean cut image as one of the stars of Disney hit High School Musical.
But it seems like Zac Efron wants to be a bad boy instead, after getting a third tattoo in the space of a year in Studio City, Los Angeles earlier this month.
He was getting some fresh ink on the inside of his right bicep, close to the double feather image he had etched last year.

He also showed how close he is to daytime chatshow queen Ellen DeGeneres by wearing a pair of her underwear, with its band peeking out above his jeans.
Zac, 24, also tried to put on a brave face, giving a cool surfers salute to the camera as he had his picture taken.
It is unclear exactly what he was having inscribed, though many will be wondering whether it is a tribute to his latest squeeze Lily Collins.

He was spotted getting all lovey-dovey with Phil Collins daughter at the exclusive Soho Club in West Hollywood as they enjoyed a romantic Valentine's Day together.
And he just happened to visit the parlour just days before their romantic rendezvous.
Hunk Zac, 24, was not showing off his latest tattoo as they dined together however, wearing a smart blue shirt.
One thing is quite clear though, it is unlikely he was going back to his Disney kids roots by getting a Donald Duck emblem.
It brings his tattoo count to three, as he also had the word YoLo put on his hand, which is believed to be an acronym for the well-known phrase ‘you only live once.'
It has certainly been a busy few months for the teen idol.
As well as getting his tattoo, he also revealed at the premiere to his animated movie The Lorax that he had been taught to play guitar by his co-star Taylor Swift.
He said: 'She’s a great teacher. In the past, everyone who’s tried to teach me guitar starts with music theory and stuff like that.
'I tend to just doze off after a little while. She went straight into songs.
'She taught me, like, four chords, and I’m already playing all the good campfire songs.'
Unfortunately he did not reveal whether he had learned Phil Collins classics In The Air Tonight or A Groovy Kind of Love to impress Lily.
