Jason Momoa made international headlines last week - after shaving his flowing trademark locks in the name of environmental advocacy. Swoon.

Yep, the Game of Thrones star took to his Instagram account to document the experience - tying the hair on the sides of his head into little plaits and shaving them off in a mohawk-style in an effort to raise awareness for ocean pollution.

The 43-year-old captioned the short clip: "Here's to new beginnings let's spread the aloha. Be better at protecting our land and oceans. We need to cut single use plastics out of our lives and out of our seas. Plastic bottles, plastic bags, packaging, utensils all of it. Let's aloha our 'āina together, aloha, J [sic]."

At the time, the actor received hundreds of comments of support, even fellow actor and former WWE superstar, Dave Bautista commented: "Whaaaaat?!!! 😱 Committed AF ❤️."

As previously reported the actor, who was named a United Nations Environment Program Advocate for Life Below Water, stated: "I'm tired of these plastic bottles. We got to stop. Plastic forks. All that s***. It just goes into our land, into our ocean. It's just so sad, so please, anything you can do to eliminate single-use plastics in your life. Help me."

Now, it seems the actor is making use of his bare scalp - adding an intricate tribal tattoo to his collection. Ouch!

Captioning a video featuring the new ink, Momoa wrote: "Here we go @hawaiianairlines is back we're going to New Zealand HAWAII TO AOTEROA Mahalo to my OHANA for being there for me yesterday @suluape_keone it was a true honor 20 years in the making."

The Aquaman star added: "So stoked @mananalu.water is on the flight mahalo again @hawaiianairlines help stop single use plastic. Always on the roam @soill Aloha j."

Momoa tagged Hawaiian Airlines, Sulu'ape Keone Nunes (a traiftional Hawaiian tattoo artist who designed the actor's new ink), his own Mananalu Pure Water company (which focuses on eliminating the use of plastic bottles), and activewear brand, So iLL, who Momoa has collaborated with. 

Many of the actor's famous friends commented under the video, with his Fast X co-star, Tyrese Gibson, writing: "Love you big bro your spirit is humble and so infectious and great! FastX is going to kill shit……. Welcome to the FAST FAMILY!!!!!"

Twilight actor, Justin Chon, also added a bunch of fire emojis in support of the actor's tattoo.

Hawaiian Airlines has been working with Momoa and his waste-free water company - providing his canned water on their flights, which the actor previously documented last month on his Instagram.

In fact, Momoa actually shaved his beard off in 2019 in support of his Mananalua Pure Water company - uploading a YouTube video of him taking clippers to his facial hair and saying: "I just want to do this to bring awareness. Plastics are killing our planet."

Evidently, the six-foot-three Hawaiian hunk is more than just a pretty face - he's our forever climate hero.
