At Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, everyone made sure to turn heads on the red carpet.  But Kyra Sedgwick had everybody taking a second look, says People.

The 46-year-old star of “The Closer”, who was nominated for best actress in a drama, smoldered in a sleek, bright red Emilio Pucci gown.  The backless design allowed her to show off a new permanent accessory.

"It's a family tattoo," she said of the design.  Linear and minimal, the tattoo is a clever overlapping of four stenciled letters.  "It's all our initials. K, K, S and T," Sedgwick explained.  The letters represent herself, her husband of 23 years Kevin Bacon, their 19-year-old daughter Sosie and 22-year-old son Travis.
