Claire Foy on the lat­est evo­lu­tion of Sa­lan­der’s in­fa­mous ink…

Whether she’s in a spi­der’s web, play­ing with fire or kick­ing a hor­net’s nest, Lis­beth Sa­lan­der will al­ways be the girl with a dragon tat­too. En­vi­sioned by Lars­son as a large tat­too that ran from the top of Lis­beth’s shoul­der to her lower back, each suc­ces­sive Sa­lan­der has been given a dis­tinct dragon de­sign, and Foy is no dif­fer­ent.

“i was re­ally keen for it to not be the Chi­nese dragon and be a Norse dragon. And i re­ally wanted the wing to be on my shoul­der. Be­cause i’ve been with my friend while she’s had a tat­too done, and i saw how im­por­tant it is, the plac­ing of the tat­too, and how it’s go­ing to move with your ribs, and how it sits on your body,” says Foy, who doesn’t have a sin­gle tat­too of her own.

“i re­alised that peo­ple don’t just make de­ci­sions like that willy-nilly, es­pe­cially if you’re go­ing to a re­ally good tat­too artist. it’s an ab­so­lute art form. But i loved it. i love how you just tell a story with your body, but also that you are never re­ally naked. You’ve al­ways got some­thing on you, which is re­ally in­ter­est­ing.” JF
