The truth behind James Franco's Emma Watson neck tattoo
After James Franco posted a black and grey photo of himself showing off a neck tattoo that featured Emma Watson's portrait along with the script 'Emma', fans went all Sherlock Holmes on his ass trying to figure out if it was real or not.

Turns out, all they had to do to get answers was take a closer look at the Instagram snap's caption. No, not the “I <3 Hermione” part, but the credit that reads "Ink by @indiangiver". Who the heck is @indiangiver? Well, her real name is Cheyenne Randall and she specializes in Photoshopping portraits of celebrities to give them ink.

“James and I work together on these images from time to time,” Randall explained in an interview with MTV News. “Previously I did a Lana Del Rey image of him, and a wheat paste of the same image a while back... This time around I was looking for another girl to be his love in this fictitious scenario, and just happened to recently watch ’This is the End’ with Emma in it. I just went with it, and it fit well. ’Emma’ really is the perfect name for tattoo script.”

There you have it, folks, it's all an illusion! We do have to admit, however, that the actor looks strangely great with that portrait of Emma plastered across his neck...

I ❤️ Hermoine. Ink by @indiangiver
