PHOTOS Why does Scarlett Johansson have a sunrise tattoo on her arm?

Bright colored tattoo on Scarlett Johansson's arm

Scarlett Johansson is an actress with a classic beauty. She’s pretty, always dresses well and oozes sex appeal. But there’s always something a bit out of place in her red carpet shots. Something that sneaks up on you and takes hostage of the glamorous atmosphere.

It’s ScarJo’s freakin’ brightly colored sunrise tattoo! Unlike most starletts’ misspelled Arabic and Sanskrit quotes, this one is difficult to move on from and block out.

No matter what dress she wears, this little sucker is lurking, waiting for just the right camera angle to show itself in all it’s Crayola glory.

But for why? What does it all mean? When Scarlett was asked about the tattoo last year, she replied:

I’ve had the tattoo of a sunrise on my arm for a while. It makes me happy when I look at it, but the reason I had it done is very personal. Some things have to remain private.

In other crimes-against-humanity ScarJo news, she’s been recently linked via gossip and chatter to Sean Penn!
