Body art is for different reasons, but it all boils down to one thing: self-expression. Dwayne Johnson’s tattoos are special in the sense that they contain his family history. Yes, if you know Samoan well, you could probably decipher what’s in it. For those of us who jumped Samoan 101 at school, we are here to deliver most of the basic tattoos. Don’t move, don’t move.
Dwayne Johnson’s Tattoos
That was in 2003 and the actor traveled to Hawaii to participate in a traditional Samoan tradition. The inking was done by Po’oino Yrondi, a popular Tahitian tattoo artist, and it took a total of 60 hours (20 hours in a row) to make the complex drawings. That year, The Rock wasn’t the only one sitting for 20 hours to get a tattoo, his cousin, Tanoa’i, also received ink.
In fact, it was a family affair, family members went out, music was played and stories about their rich heritage were shared. Okay, to get back to the subject of Johnson’s tattoos, the original piece was a half-sleeve tattoo, but later in the year, the actor laid it on the left side of his chest. Each line and each curve has a great meaning and we will try to break it down.
The essence of Dwayne Johnson’s tattoos can be summed up in three things: family, protection of his family, and having “a very aggressive warrior spirit”. To further break it down, here is what some of the important brands mean. The coconut leaves represent a Samoan chief warrior, then there is a sun, which brings good luck.
The A/ga fa’atasi (three people in one), begins on his shoulder and continues on his chest, it represents Dwayne, his wife (now his ex-wife), and his daughter.
The tattoo also includes downward spirals that represent the past, present, and future, as well as two eyes symbolizing his ancestors who watch his path and also the Great Eye, which is used to distract the enemy in combat. There are still a lot of ‘tattoos’ to examine, so hang in there. In Johnson’s tattoos, there is also a broken face marked by shark teeth, which represents the protector of the Rock spirit and a symbol of his struggle.
There is also a priest and a spiritual guide, who symbolizes enlightenment, the stones of achievement and abundance, denoting the foundation of his life, and a turtle shell, to divert evil spirits. No wonder this thing took 60 hours and it’s only the part of the arm, the actor turned around for more.
The chest piece consists of a warrior’s face just above his heart, and it represents Dwayne’s warrior spirit and his ability to face and overcome all challenges. Apart from this complex drawing, the actor had a bull inked on the upper part of his right arm and it is a reference to his nickname, ‘The Brahma Bull’.
When asked if he was going to go back for more additions, all he said was, “I have a lot of bodies, we could cover a lot of them. He certainly knows that.
Dwayne Johnson’s House
Last year, the wrestler turned actor spent $3.5 million on a mansion in Florida. Although elegant, the house itself is modest enough for a celebrity of its caliber. Don’t deform it, it’s not a mud hut and we have the pictures to prove it.
The estate, with its 6 bedrooms and bedrooms that look like this one, we are tempted to move in.
The house also has 7 bathrooms, there are also showers for those who prefer it. The bathroom is even equipped with a chandelier! You were told it wasn’t a mud hut.
In addition, there is a home theatre with its own ticket office, we bet it’s convenient. Watching yourself on a big screen, in your own home, well, nothing beats that.
The house also has a gym, we all know that the actor loves to exercise so that the information is not a spoiler alert, and of course he has a pool on his 100,000 square foot house because every pretty house deserves a pool. There is no doubt now that the star lives in style, we can’t say that we didn’t expect it.
