LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- James Franco has taken to social media to show off a new tattoo that pays homage to Emma Watson.

Located on Franco's neck, the tattoo features a detailed portrait of the Harry Potter star with her name "Emma" written in cursive underneath it.

"I <3 Hermoine. Ink by @indiangiver," Franco posted on Instagram Wednesday featuring the tattoo.

The black and white selfie also showcases an elaborate American eagle tattoo located on Franco's bare chest.

The new ink however does appear to be a fake. The artist credited with the work, Cheyenne Randall is known for using Photoshop to add ink to pictures of celebrities. Randall's own Instagram account features the same photo Franco posted with the hashtag "#shoppedtattoos," referencing the photo editing software.

Randal's account features other celebrities with photoshopped tattoo including Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. Watson has yet to comment on her fellow actor's homage to her likeness.

Franco and Watson both costarred together in the 2013 comedy hit, This Is The End.
