Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is finally hitting theaters later this year, and fans are gearing up to celebrate the last film of the Skywalker Saga. Fans pay tribute to the films in different ways, and for many people in the fandom that means honoring the franchise with permanent ink (even the author of this post has three Star Wars tattoos). It’s always fun when stars acknowledge the tats they’re featured in, and John Boyega is no exception. The actor best known for playing Finn recently took to Twitter to share some cool tattoos of his face.

“The movie doesn’t pick up immediately after the last film," he shared. "Some time has passed. This movie is an adventure the group goes on together. One of the great things about getting to work on the movie is the dynamic between all of the characters. They’re amazing together, and it’s something I’m excited for you all to see.”
