Speaking with a reporter for The New York Times Magazine, Mack scoffed at the idea of merely tattooing the women: Tattoos are for wimps, Mack implied in the interview, which she gave six months before her arrest on federal human-trafficking charges.
“I was like: ‘Y’all, a tattoo?’” Mack told reporter Vanessa Grigoriadis, speaking from her apartment in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, for a Nxivm profile running Sunday.
“People get drunk and tattooed on their ankle ‘BFF,’ or a tramp stamp,” said Mack, who played Clark Kent’s buddy on the long-running WB series. “I have two tattoos, and they mean nothing.”
Apparently, branding them by searing their flesh with a cauterizing pen instead, leaving them permanently scarred with the initials of both Mack and accused cult boss Keith Raniere, would be far more meaningful — even if the branded women themselves didn’t know the meaning.
