The Rock Completely TRANSFORMS Iconic Brahma Bull Tattoo

The Rock Completely TRANSFORMS Iconic Brahma Bull Tattoo

The Rock revealed the completed transformation of his iconic Brahma Bull tattoo on Instagram. You can check it out below:

Evolution of the bull. After 3 sessions and 22hrs of tattooing with world renowned @NikkoHurtado, the story’s almost done.. Every detail is a reflection of my own personal history. From the cracks and heavy damage in the bone representing life’s hard lessons I’ve learned over the years. Just like scars and wrinkles – I’m so grateful to have ’em because they’re earned. To the horns, not pointing up or out to the side, but pointing straight ahead representing relentless energy and forward progress. The core and anchor of this image is in the eye. Look closely and you’ll find the life, energy, power and you’ll feel the MANA (spirit). The eye tells the story of a disruptive positive energy always ready to dent the universe. Depending on the light and angle, sometimes the energy’s subtle and sometimes it’s glaring. But it’s always alive and ready to disrupt the universe and love and protect my family and all things I love with intense passion and gratitude. Cheers to living, learning, evolving and growing. And to the positive disrupters ready to dent the universe. #EvolutionOfTheBull #TheDisrupter #TheMana #NowLetsBreakOutTheTequila

Here is a video from a few days back when he first started the transformation of the tattoo:

    So you did away with the iconic tattoo that represented everything that got The Rock to where he is today, and replaced it with a completely different, MASSIVE decaying skull of satan.

    That’s… something.

  • Omar

    Because nothing says life, spirit and energy like a broken, fucked-up demon’s skull.

  • L. Knight

    Normally I love cool, demonic lookin’ shit, but…

    No… wha… why… That’s like walking into Monday Night Raw and saying Oh, by the way, call me Rocky Maivia again, please.”

  • Brett Deverell

    Its a brahma bull skull! Love how people call it a demon skull, have any of u actual seen a demon? How do u know what its skull looks like?

    • Dakon3

      lol, I’m sure everyone’s well aware it’s supposed to be a bull’s skull.

      They’re pointing out how it looks entirely demonic now above all else. Kinda hard to misinterpret that.
