She might be a good girl in real life, but in a new sketch for website Funny Or Die, Forgetting Sarah Marshall actress Kristen Bell is seen getting some serious ink.

In the comical video, the 31-year-old actress parodies herself - and pretends to have 214 tattoos.

Transformed: The actress jokes how getting into character for her takes longer than most because she has to spend between 12 and 14 hours getting the etchings covered

Bell is tended to by a team of make-up artists during the clip - who she explains are tasked with covering up her sprawling body art before she goes on set.

The House Of Lies star explains: 'Not a lot of people know this about me - it's a little trade secret from a Hollywood sandbox.

'The process of getting into character takes a little bit longer for me than most other actors.'

Her canny make-up assistant then explains that Kristen arrives on location at 3.30am everyday and spends between 12 and 14 hours getting transformed.

Kristen then gives the camera a guided tour of her tattoos, including 'I Heart Windows 95,' a picture of Willy Wonka, and a troll with pink hair.

She also has facial inkings, including a star, before crudely drawing attention to a phrase scrawled under her chin: 'Insert gear here.'

The actress is gradually transformed throughout the video, finally appearing tattoo free as her stylist covers the (obviously fake) tattoos in make-up.

Asked by the interviewer what is the longest time she has spent preparing to go on set, she replies: '15 hours'.

She also adds that the tribal band on her wrist is probably the tattoo she regrets the most because it is 'kind of out dated' and jokes how he did nine of the tattoos herself.

Bell is currently starring in Showtime's House Of Lies.
