In the Lost series, a young guy named Charlie has a tattoo on his arm that reads "Living is easy with eyes closed". Does it carry any significance within the series or is it a real actor's tattoo?

According to Lostpedia, the tattoo belongs to the actor and not the character.

The words are a line from Strawberry Fields Forever, by the Beatles.

Source Lostpedia:

Charlie (as well as the actor who portrays him) bears a tattoo on his left shoulder which reads "Living is easy with eyes closed". This is a quote from The Beatles' song "Strawberry Fields Forever," a song whose lyrics and/or meaning could be considered symbolic of the Losties' experiences, Charlie's in particular.
