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."

While Corey Feldman appreciates the outpouring of support over the tragic death of his longtime friend Corey Haim at 38, he's also "very troubled" as he wonders where the support was during Haim's life.
Feldman, who appeared on Larry King Live Wednesday night, said Haim was "very destitute, very broke," had no car and few friends.
"At the end of the day, Larry, where were all these people the last 10 years, the last 15 years of Corey's life?" asked Feldman, also 38. "Where were all these people to lend a hand out, to reach out to him and say, you know, you're a legend, you're – you're an amazingly talented, wonderful person who's really never gone out of his way to hurt anybody other than himself?"

Corey Feldman has said he's "shaken up" by the death of his friend and idol Michael Jackson. To pay homage to the late, great star, Feldman has twice dressed in a Jackson-style outfit.
On Tuesday, the actor showed up to mourn his old friend at the Michael Jackson Memorial Concert at the Staples Center in L.A. wearing a faux-military jacket, shades, and a black fedora.
Just two days after Jackson's death, during Feldman's L.A. concert with his band Truth Movement, the actor told the audience he wanted to honor "the world's greatest entertainer" with a moment of silence – all while dressed in a Jackson-style buttoned regal jacket.

Feldman, distraught and moody, told the crowd Jackson was watching over the show.

Former '80s teen idols and onetime best friends, Corey Feldman and Corey Haim are now locked in a bitter six-month-old feud that has them refusing to speak or even stand together for a photo, PEOPLE reports in its latest issue.
Feldman, 37, has sworn to have no further contact with his former pal until Haim, 36, gets sober, telling PEOPLE, "As a friend and somebody that cares deeply about the guy, I'm not going to watch him destroy himself."
Haim, who says he has been sober for the past 10 months – ever since he was shown as being under the influence on the A&E reality show The Two Coreys – tells PEOPLE he's in no rush to make amends, and that he's still dealing with the pain of having been sexually abused as a child – a trauma that both men admit they endured.
