John Boyega couldn't keep his new ink a secret any longer — and his mom promptly scolded him.
On Tuesday, the Star Wars actor, 28, comedically documented his plight in telling his parents, Samson and Abigail, about his chest tattoo, offering a play-by-play of himself bracing for admonishment as his sister, Grace, hilariously enjoyed the spectacle.
"Been hiding my chest tattoo from my mum. She just asked me to call her 😩😩😩😩 I’m shooooooookk!!" the London-born actor first tweeted.
Boyega then expressed his growing nervousness, joking, "Nah why am I hearing that jumanji drumming !" Sharing a nail-biting GIF, Boyega then wrote, "Nah my mum said Adedayo. Call me," conveying the seriousness of his mom using his birth name.
In her line of questioning, Boyega said his mother compared him to soccer star David Beckham, who is prominently tattooed.
"Nah the talking to I just got..... she asked if I’m trying to be like DAVI BECKAM. 😩😩😩😩," he tweeted, explaining that "David Beckham tatts are a no no for a Christian Nigerian mum with tribal marks bro."
