'It got a little out of control," Ryan Gosling says about the abundant tattooage he's sporting in The Place Beyond the Pines . A top hat, a Bible, an owl, twin boxers, a snake, a three-masted schooner, letters on his knuckles: H-A-N-D on one hand, S-O-M-E on the other. And on his face, just beneath his left eye, a dagger with a drop of blood. "The idea was to create this portrait of someone that was basically like a melting pot of masculine cliches," says the actor, whose character, Luke, is a stunt motorcyclist in a traveling carnival.
