The Sun has reported that the 33-year-old actor thinks that bosses at big shows will take him more seriously once he is tattoo free.
A source was quoted saying, “Shayne is taking his bid to go into serious dramas very seriously. He’s hoping that getting rid of the tattoos on both arms and will help with castings and open the door to more work. Coronation Street has been an amazing opportunity but he’s ready to try new things.”
It can be recalled that the former X Factor star shared two years ago that he is no longer a fan of his tattoos. When asked if there is something that he would change about his body, he would want to have his body art removed.
“It would be to have no tattoos. I’d like a blank canvas to start again. I now know what I want, whereas as a teenager I didn’t have a clue.”
