@ THE EMMYS: TIME FOR A NEW TATTOO?

Damian Lewis was so over the moon at winning an Emmy that he says he’s thinking of having “Emmy Winner” tattooed on, well, somewhere on the back of his body.

“I’m overwhelmed that I am here!” said the winner of the best actor award for a drama series for “Homeland.”

When told backstage that he could have the trophy engraved with his name at the Governors Ball after the show, he contemplated complementing that with body art.

But first he had to sign for his award, and as he did couldn’t hold his hands still.

“It’s like my grandmother used to write — all shaky,” he said.

“Just tell me what to do,” he continued. “I’m out of my mind.”
