Most fans will recognize Mayim Bialik as the mightily talented actress playing Amy Farrah Fowler in The Big Bang Theory and Kat in Call Me Kat.

Mayim frequently portrays hilarious, yet somewhat unconventional women. So, does she have anything in common with her on-screen characters, or is she completely different?

According to the grapevine, Mayim has several tattoos, including one on her neck. But are the rumors anything to go by?

In addition to her ink, Mayim is a big fan of piercings — so much so that she has continued to build her collection over the years. 

"I got my ears pierced as a baby but since then I have added twelve more piercings," Mayim said while partaking in a game of "Two Truths and a Lie" in a July 2012 episode of Good Afternoon America. 

"I love how piercings look," Mayim previously remarked.

"I love how piercings look, I love accessorizing with hoops and studs and fun earrings," Mayim explained in a piece for her blog

But some of her on-screen characters might not share her love of piercings and body art. According to a rumor, she had to take the piercings out while working on The Big Bang Theory. 

However, Kat, the titular character of Call Me Kat is frequently spotted with exquisite pieces of jewelry.

Mayim previously joked about getting a tattoo to remind her of 'The Big Bang Theory.'

Asked about what tattoo she would get to commemorate her time spent working on The Big Bang Theory, Mayim jokingly remarked in an interview that she would consider shaving her head off and getting a design depicting a tiara before letting the hair grow back.

"I would shave my head and tattoo a tiara and then just let the hair grow back over it," Mayim said.
