>• Now 37, the fantasy flick's kid star has turned his passion for tattoos into a family business.

25 YEARS after playing boy hero Atreyu in the 1984 fantasy tale, Noah Hathaway still gets fan mail with a common confession: "'I had the biggest crush on you when I was 12,'" he says. "My wife and I read them and crack up." The former child actor and his wife, Sameerah, a tattoo artist, now run Wild Child Tattoo and Clothing in L.A. "I've loved tattoos forever," he says. "They bring something out in a person. They're sexy." Hathaway got his first tattoo at 15 but insists his sons Tre, 16, and Jared, 11 (pictured above), will wait longer to go under the needle: "They have to be 18!"
