Before we get into The Rock's tattoo, let's talk about how Dwayne Johnson is a perfect example of why your parents told you to never judge a book by its cover. Sure, he looks from the outside he looks like your standard "tatted-up meathead", but on the inside? The man is one of the most down to earth dudes in Hollywood! He preaches positivity, inner-strength, and progress — how many movie stars can you say that about? Well, maybe a few, but with The Rock it feels genuine (not some persona cooked up by a PR company).
There's a reason he's been a household name since his days with the WWE and we're pleased to see that the trajectory of his career remains ever-strong. Most recently, The Rock to his Instagram to share the meaning behind his new beastly tattoo. Seriously, this thing is massive. In addition to being aesthetically magnificent, the meaning is pretty freakin' moving. We didn't tear up or anything, but yeah, we guess you could say it made us want to grab life by the balls.
After approximately 30 hours of tattooing (4 sessions) with my good bud and iconic artist @nikkohurtado, the story of my skull is complete. Flow of positive energy is constant thru the breathe of life. Horns always positioned forward. Not up, but forward - representing forward progress and always at the ready to dig in and dig deep. Eye is the mana - the spirit and the power. It’s everything. It’s where I draw my strength from all things I love and protect. As with my Polynesian tattoo on the left side of body, the symbolic mana lays over my heart. We all have mana. Our strength. You just have to find it. #BullDNA #Energy #Progress #Mana
First of all, over 40 hours of tattooing? That's insane. Granted, it was over a couple of sessions, but still, woof! That's gotta be painful. Then again, it's The Rock — does he even feel pain? Seriously though, his description is truly inspiring. So, in the words of Dwayne Johnson, get out there and find your mana today, OK guys?!
