Corey Feldman's New Tattoo Translated

As Corey Haim was being laid to rest in Toronto, his good friend Corey Feldman was paying his own kind of tribute at an L.A.-area tattoo parlor.

On Tuesday, the actor went to T Man Tattoo in Studio City, Calif., and got the number '222' inked on his arm alongside an elaborate illustration depicting a hot air balloon being lifted into the clouds featuring the name of his son, Zen. The basket portion of the hot air balloon tattoo was a peace sign, which Feldman converted from a tattoo of his ex-wife's name. "It was a cover-up," he told Splash News.

"[I've] attached some strings to it," he said. "The basket's got my son's name in it. And then I'm putting his eyes underneath it, so it's kind of like his eyes are lifting up the basket which is going into the clouds."

Feldman explained the number, which he had inked on the left side of the balloon and cloud scene, represented Haim, who also had that number tattooed on his body.



"On the day of his funeral I felt like I should mark hm on my body forever," he said. "Now we're matching."
