1. ‘Intricate Tribal’ Tattoo

Tattoo: ‘Intricate Tribal’ Tattoo on his chest and left arm.

Meaning: The Rock’s tattoos come down to three things:  family, protecting his family, and having an aggressive warrior spirit. It would be difficult to put into words, the meaning of the ink as a whole. Therefore, we’ve broken down the intricate ink into fragments, explaining their unique meanings:

a) The Great Eye

The Great Eye is supposed to let the person who has inked it, possess the spirit of his or her enemy. This symbol is used as a distraction in times of confrontation.

b) Swirls

Descending swirls around The Rock’s left shoulder represent past, present, and future. The pattern furthers under his arm, where its meaning is written. It says,  “It changes in the place where it is found to be gone.”

c) Warrior Spirit
