Daniel Radcliffe's parents have banned him from having tattoos.

The 'Woman in Black' actor is a big fan of body art and would love to have a quote by his favourite playwright Samuel Beckett inked across his body, but he thinks his mum and dad would go ballistic if they found out.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: ''I want the line from Beckett - 'Try, fail, try again and fail better' - either on my arm or chest. Although I shouldn't really talk about tattoos in case my mum and dad hear about it.''

The 24-year-old star also revealed he is no longer fazed by 'Harry Potter' fans incessantly approaching him in public.

Daniel added: ''I don't get nearly as annoyed as some of my friends do. All my friends think it's rude but I don't think twice about it. There will always be people with 'Harry Potter' books to sign and I have accepted that.''

The actor previously said he thinks tattoos are ''really, really cool'', although he isn't such a fan of Harry Styles' multitude of random inkings - which include a ship, a giant butterfly and a pair of matching branches on his hips.

When the One Direction singer's tattoos were described to him, Daniel joked: ''Like prison tattoos? Isn't that what you have when you've done five years?''
