Pauley Perrette may have a new man in her life, but her stance on marriage remains the same—she and her fiancée, Thomas Arklie, won't get hitched until all of her friends can.

Perrette, star of the CBS series NCIS, will appear on the Jeff Probst Show on Friday, and told the host about how her character Abby got her iconic look.

“Even though I have quite a bit of ink myself, mine can be hidden," she said. "But (Executive Producer Donald Bellisario) wanted a tattoo that was visible at all times, no matter what I was wearing, so then I ended up with a giant spider web across my neck and then the first day of shooting, ten years ago, I had just gotten out of the shower and I had my hair in pony tails to dry it…I got out of my car and my producer, Mark Horowitz, went, ‘That's it. That’s Abby's hair.’ So now, I can't wear ponytails anymore in my real life but that's how that happened."
