“The evolution of the Bull tattoo is almost complete.”
The actor first got his bicep tattoo when he was wrestling for WWE, and in 2017 he improved it immensely by adding more ink to the design.
Recently, Johnson spoke with tattoo artist Yomicoart to make it even better, and he documented the whole experience on Instagram.
“The evolution of the Bull tattoo is almost complete,” he wrote. “Day 2 and inking for over 25 hours so far with my brother and hyperrealistic specialist @yomicoart in my basement.”
“Yomico is masterful in his skills and we have spent many months (almost a year through Covid) collaborating on the details and history that the tattoo will represent,” Johnson continued. “Almost done and almost time to bring out the tequila.”
“Day 3 and we are almost done”, the Jumanji: the next level star wrote in another post. “Almost 30 hours of tattooing (quite difficult as my entire upper arm and shoulder were not a blank canvas but rather an improvement and addition to what was already there, so the level of detail, precision and specific color for my skin takes a long time). “
“[I’m] with my brother @yomicoart, ”he added. “He’s a hyper-realistic master of the art and a great collaborator with me as we’ve taken months to polish the story and the information this tattoo needs to tell.”
In 2017, Johnson opened up about why he decided to get a bull tattoo on his arm.
“I anchored this bull in my DNA for two decades,” he said on Instagram at the time. “My heart. Humbly, it has also become a symbol of strength, resilience, heart, power and challenge for so many people around the world.”
“I got this tattoo when I was a kid. Now I need it to reflect myself as a man.”
Johnson’s tattoo is progressing very well. Can’t wait to see it when it’s finished!
