Cersei Has Tattoos?! Check Out Lena Headey’s Ink! (PHOTOS)

Cersei is the kind of woman who would never get a tattoo, even if she was alive today. But in real life, Lena Headey actually rocks some pretty intense back tats. She recently showed off her ink to fine effect at the 2014 Emmys, so we thought we'd give you a chance to check the tats out.

As you can see, Lena has some lovely birds and flowers covering her back, and that's just the start. Why all the art? Well, she had this to say to Esquire about her body art: "It's funny how tattoos seem to scare people. There's something about it that I love. I find it calming. At the end of the day you're just decorating skin. I hate seeing myself covered up."

In fact, Lena loves her tats so much, when a Twitter follower asked her how old she was when she first got a tattoo, she replied, "I was born wearing ink."
