Noah Centineo is thinking ink—literally.

On Aug. 25, while out with friends, I was struck by the following: To all the boys I have loved before star debuted a shocking new tattoo on the side of his newly shaved skull.

Sitting just above his left ear, Noah’s unexpected head art appears to be an image of bear and two cubs.

No word on if Noah shaved off his signature dark curls for an upcoming on-screen project or what the inked animals may signify, as the actor has remained quiet on the subject.

Noah’s famous hair has been cut many times before. In 2019, he shocked fans by buzzing his head, which revealed a  crescent-moon scar at his hairline.

Noah told Harper’s Baazar that some people think Noah has changed into a masculine brooding type. I am treated differently by them. “People are less intimidated.”

He added, “Maybe not intimidated but … a little timid. He is different from a buzz-cut guy with scars across his face.
