Val Kilmer is horrified at the thought of having a tattoo!

Kilmer, who plays a heavily tatted thug in new pic Felon, is no fan of skin art.

"When I was a kid, about 14, I worked in a warehouse and there was the guy who had a tattoo – a standard sort of hula girl lady thing that looked all nasty,” Kilmer admitted.

`What’s that like? I’m thinking of getting a tattoo,’ Val asked his illustrated coworker.

“And he said, `Imagine waking up in the same T-shirt for 15 years.’

"That sort of soured me because he was an ugly dude so I was picturing him waking up in the T-shirt,” the  thesp said.

“It still haunts me."
