Rob Lowe Flashes Ellen DeGeneres His Tattoo (Video)

”I don’t know what it is anymore,“ Lowe says of his body art

Rob Lowe gets intimate with Ellen DeGeneres on the Wednesday edition of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” revealing his tattoo to the talk show host and explaining the personal story behind it.

“When I got sober many, many, many years ago, my biggest fear was that I wouldn’t be wild. I wouldn’t still have it,” the “West Wing” alum explains. “So I of course went and got a tattoo because I was still wild. So I have my newly sober, I’m still wild tattoo and it’s horrible.”

Asked about the subject of the tattoo, Lowe whips off his shirt and exposes his upper arm, revealing an indistinct, ink pattern.

“I don’t know what it is anymore,” Lowe confessed. “It once was a koi fish. A traditional Japanese koi fish and a swirl of water and now it’s a wonderful blob. Like my mind.”
