Margot Robbie said she's "hung up the tattoo gun" after drunkenly inking a friend during a bachelorette party. 

Robbie said on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" on Wednesday that during filming for "Suicide Squad," the set and cast members, including the director and Cara Delevingne, used to pop into her trailer for a fresh set of ink. She also said she tattooed her own foot with the word "skwad." 

But after having a "few mishaps" with her eBay-bought tattoo gun, she's since quit her amateur ink work.

"I shouldn't tattoo. People let me do it though! I warn them and tell them I'm not good at drawing and I'm not qualified, but people still let me do it," Robbie said.

One person Robbie said she was unsure is "okay" with her handy work is a friend she tattooed during a wedding down under. 

"One of my good friends was getting married in Australia and had the hens, bachelorette you would say, the night before," She said. "And of course there was a lot of drinking and we thought 'oh we'll get matching tattoos because that's a great idea.'" 

Robbie told Jimmy Fallon she tattooed the maid of honor's back after someone had drawn an outline in pen of what they thought she wanted. 

Unfortunately, a few too many drinks meant Robbie misjudged what her friend actually wanted on her permanently. 

"When I showed her afterwards she was like, 'Oh, I didn't know that was what I was getting,' and I was like, 'Oh god, like what did you think you were getting?' And she was like, 'Oh doesn't matter, I like it either way.' So lucky, she was cool about it," Robbie said.

But the next day at the wedding, Robbie said the maid of honor's mother was "so angry" with her as her fresh set of ink was on full display in a backless dress. 

"But do you know who was not cool about it, her mum the next day at the wedding when she walked down the aisle as one of the maids of honor in a backless dress," she said. 

"And had this red-raw scabbing tattoo and her mum was filthy with me, she was roused with me at the wedding, she was so angry and I thought, I really shouldn't do this anymore." 

Following her appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Robbie took to Instagram to show off her amateur tattoo skills during the Australian bachelorette party. 

However, Robbie did say on the show if Fallon ever wanted to offer his body up as a canvas, she'd be happy to get back into the business. 

"Unless you want one Jimmy in which case I'll do it," she said, to which Fallon quickly declined, saying, "No, no, no!"
