Kristen Stewart sported a bold tattoo over the summer of 2013 for her new movie “Clouds of Sils Maria.” She confirmed at the time it was a movie prop. But not any more. The actress told James Cordon last night she liked the tat so much she got one for real.

But no word or what it means. She’s not telling and Cordon didn’t even ask. Duh!

Stewart, 24, said both her mother and father have numerous tattoos so she resisted getting one as a sign of “rebellion.”

“For years and years, I was like, ‘I do not need that. I stand alone.’ And then I was like, ‘No, I really like them, though.'” she explained.

Getting a fake tattoo for her movie was like taking a “test drive,” she added.

The tattoo blots the inside of Kristen’s right forearm, just below her elbow. It’s a dark rectangle with what looks like an all-seeing eye, maybe of ancient Egyptian, Buddhist or Hindu origin. The iris looks like a tiny bell.

She previously had two tiny, almost inconspicuous tats. One is an infinity symbol that looks like the number eight on her right wrist and four black lines on he left wrist. The latter, we know, is a tribute to the ’70s punk band Black Flag.

In the movie, her character also had crudely drawn tats of a fish, a hammer and a crown. But those were also temporary and are now gone.

“I had [the fake tattoo] for two months, so it’s like the perfect little test drive. I got back and I didn’t realize that I wanted it, and I really missed it,” she said.

She called her mom and asked her to hook her up her tattoo artist and went with Kristen to she her get inked. “It was a sweet little experience,” she says.
