There's a lot to admire about Margot Robbie, according to Vogue's June cover story about the Suicide Squad and Tarzan actress. A trapeze instructor calls her "disgustingly good" at acrobatic stunts; Jared Leto says her Wolf of Wall street performance was a "rare, explosive discovery"; Alexander Skarskård calls Robbie "cool and down-to-earth"; Tina Fey attests that she is "very strong."

As though her admission to Hollywood's Cool Girl Dream Girl Club was not secure, there's this tidbit: she's also an avid amateur tattoo artist.

As a wrap gift after Tarzan, Sophia—her best friend/housemate/business partner—bought her a tattoo gun on eBay, and soon, between scenes while shooting Suicide Squad, says Robbie, "people would come into my trailer: ‘Hey, Margs—can I get a tattoo?’ ‘Sure—sit on down!’ " She even gave Delevingne something she dubbed "toemojis"—five emoji faces on the bottoms of her toes. "And then we all decided to get Squad tattoos, David Ayer included," says Robbie. Now she travels with her tattoo kit everywhere she goes.

By the end of the profile, even author Jonathan Van Meter has let Robbie give him a tattoo. Why wouldn't he? The woman is good at literally everything.
