Shanghai Noon - Tattoo?
Okay, when they are in the bathtub and Roy is blowing bubbles and talking when they move the camera over to Chon you can see a tattoo of a Chinese symbol on his left shoulder....I mean tell me if I'm wrong but how would American's know Chinese symbols and did they even have tattoos back then?!?!?!

Actually, they have had tattoos all the way back during the time of cavemen. They were even found in ancient Egypt, they most certainly had them back in the 1800's, even more so in China.

Actors are human too, and there really isn't a make-up that will cover tattoos. Owen has had that tattoo for a long time, he really couldn't go get laser surgery for one scene! Come on!

ok, you say that chon wang has a tattoo in the bathtub on his shoulder, so whats with the comment about americans not knowing about chinese symbols? what does that have to do with chon wang having a tattoo with his native language symbol? that makes it sound like Roy has the tattoo or knows what it means. but either way, tattoos have been around for thousands of years. ever hear of the iceman Otzi? He was discovered in the alps and is believed to be about 5,300 years old. he has multiple tattoos. this is not a slip up. and yes, there is make up that will cover up tattoos. a girl i went to high school had to use it because she would have gotten in a lot of trouble if it was seen in school (catholic school).

I guess the director could say Roy got the tatoo in Chinatown.

Nonetheless, they still could have switched camera angles so as to prevent the anachronism.
