Johson, 31, revealed her relationship with tattoos and piercings during an interview with James Cordon on The Late Late Show with James Corden, revealing how mom Melanie Griffith, 63, was the one who not only permitted her to get a piercing at the young age of 14 — but how she also got one too!
“She took me to get my belly button pierced when I was 14, and she also got her belly button pierced. I don’t know why I am telling you this,” Johnson laughed.
But that was not the only time Johnson’s mom tagged along…
“My mom took me to get my first tattoo,” Johnson added.
But Johnson’s father, Don Johnson, 71, was not too happy with this.
“He said that if I ever got a tattoo he would disown me,” Johnson said. But she was able to smooth things over by getting a tattoo “of something he used to say.”
Over the years, Johnson has acquired “like 11 or 12” tattoos all over her body, which Corden was surprised to hear — saying Johnson didn’t look to be a “tattoo fiend.”
“I’m not a tattoo fiend. It’s 2021. That is conservative,” Johnson quipped.
She did admit however that as she has gotten older, she wishes she would have taken more time to rethink the work done on her body.
“I regret some of them because they are just silly now,” she said.
