Tyler Posey admitted that while his tattoos are permanent, the meaning behind them was temporary.

The Teen Wolf alum joined his former castmates - Max and Charlie Carver, Keahu Kahuanui, Khylin Rhambo, Michael Johnston, Orny Adams, Ryan Kelley and Tyler Hoechlin - at Epic Cons Chicago on Saturday for a panel on the hit MTV series.

During their conversation with moderator Arielle Kebbel, Posey, 32, revealed that of his dozens of tattoos, “none of them mean anything anymore." However, he said they still "look cool as one piece."

The Maid in Manhattan actor previously explained to Teen Vogue in 2017 that he's been interested in tattoos "literally since [he] was 10 or 12 years old."

"I used to draw a small-scale version of my body on a piece of paper and then just cover myself in tattoos — colorful, black and gray, whatever," explained the actor. "I just kept falling in love with it more and more."

While promoting the series' 2023 reunion movie Teen Wolf: The Movie, Posey shared with the TODAY Show that he actually gave himself his first tattoo.

"Blink 182 was my favorite band as a kid. I fell in love with all of their tattoos, and I was like, I want that," he shared with the series anchors. "So I used to scratch designs into my arm with a stick and rub ink on it."

He continued: "And then one time, I thought I got smart. I grabbed a needle and burned it. I wanted to sterilize it when I was a little kid. And then I didn't wipe off the soot from the metal. I just stuck that in my arm, and it stayed until now. But I've covered it up."

As for the film, Posey revealed during the Saturday panel that he "would've loved" if it catered to the adult fans.

"Teen Wolf stuck. It was like 15 years ago or so now. Most of the fans were, there was a wide range of ages, but a lot of us were younger. You know what I mean? And now, you're all adults, right? Most of you are adults now. [Maybe] you just found it on Netflix last month, right? Or now," explained the actor.

Posey said he felt like the reunion movie was "still meant for a younger audience," adding, "So, I would've loved to see the movie be made for the fans who have grown up with the show and it had that tone of, 'Hey, we're young adults now, or adults, and we're dealing with adult scenarios.' "

The actor continued, "I just wanted to see more adult scenarios in the movie. So, we just wait for the second movie that's how it's going to happen. Who knows?"
