After reading on some fashion blogs that Charlize Theron‘s tattoo “ruined” her British Vogue cover that came out today, I wondered what tattoo could possibly be so awful that it would wreck the combination of Theron’s beauty and Vogue‘s flawless styling.

Answer: no tattoo, of course, at least not this one. People who complain about a tiny ankle tattoo marring Theron’s untouchable Grace Kelly-esque beauty need to go hang out with this guy for a while:

But while you’re here, I will tell you that Theron’s tattoo is of a Koi fish, and it’s actually a matching tattoo she got with her mom. In light of that, I think it’s rather sweet that the Vogue editors didn’t Photoshop it out (which they easily could have done), because now her mom gets to be excited not only about seeing her daughter on the cover of British Vogue, but about seeing her own tattoo there as well, like some kind of awesome, silent shout-out from her kid.

Here’s a better picture of it:
