British actor Julian Morris, known for his roles on Pretty Little Liars and The Morning Show, marked his 39th birthday last Thursday by getting some new ink work done.

Morris turned to celebrated tattoo artist Philippe Fernandez for the artwork. Fernandez has won praise and fans for his simple, homoerotic line drawings of men.


Morris posted images of the new tattoo to his Instagram stories late last week. The tattoo shows a naked man, with his back to the viewer, standing in water and the sun setting in the background. Morris tagged the tattooist in his stories.
