Mickey Rourke has inked a large tattoo tribute to his recently deceased pet dog on his lower arm.

The Wrestler star headed to a tattoo parlour in New York on Sunday (04Jan14) to get the phrase 'Guapo Siempre', Spanish for 'handsome forever', etched onto the length of his lower left arm during a two-hour session.

According to Tmz.com, the phrase was the affectionate nickname Rourke gave to his pet chihuahua Jaws. During a press conference ahead of a wrestling match in November (14), Rourke wore a photograph of the white pooch on a lanyard around his neck with those words underneath.
