James shared with Elle magazine that the team of craftsmen from the art department who applied the tattoos was very painful.
"It took a while to put that on! Sometimes four hours. It was a pain in the a**, but it was fine," James told Elle magazine. "It's obviously not a bad job to sit in a chair for several hours. You can't complain. What I liked about it was that there's a specific aggressiveness about it, and I didn't want it to look too soft or something. But it has a tree-like visceral element to it, which is cool, but maneuvering that on to someone's back is a work of art in itself."
