    James Franco "Tattooed" Elizabeth Taylor Onto His Freshly Shaved Head

    It's quite a look.

    Two days ago James shared this "before" photo.

    And here's "after."

    He later shared this picture — which didn't make a whole lot of sense at the time.

    But then Franco showed up at the Venice Film Festival like this.

    The Daily Mail was quick to point out this 1951 still of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift from A Place In The Sun.

    And for the record: the character Franco shaved his head for in Zeroville has the very same tattoo.

    So in a way, this whole look makes some kind of sense?

    ...Or maybe we've just been Franco'd.
