James Franco showed off a tattoo of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift on the back of his recently shaved head. But don't worry, it's only temporary.

The eccentric actor underwent the makeover for his role in Zeroville, in which he plays a troubled architecture student who hopes to make it in Hollywood.
