Literally anything The Rock does or posts on social media turns into instant world news and should probably be studied in schools.
The world’s busiest man is always dishing out inspiration and giving his fans inside looks into his life and the process that goes into being DJ.
His latest IG post is more of the same as he posted this new bicep sleeve, which covers his old, iconic brahma bull tat.
The explanation of the meaning behind the tat was the wildest part.
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
While it’s still a bull, you can clearly see that this shit has evolved.
Just like Dwayne, the bull has transitioned into a new part of it’s career where, regardless of how much he’s accomplished, he’s pushing forward with that same hunger he had when he only had seven cash in his pocket.
Now, there’s a lot of fly shit that was said here, but some of the most interesting points he made about the 22-hour, three session tat was this:
“To the horns, not pointing up or out to the side, but pointing straight ahead representing relentless energy and forward progress.”
Can you imagine how a guy like The Rock is still hustling his ass off like it’s day one all over again? Even after all the millions made and blockbuster hits, he’s still ready for more and pushing his greatness to the next level.
Here he was getting the tattoo done by his guy Nikko Hurtado
Evolution of the bull begins w/ @nikkohurtado. I’ve engrained this bull in my DNA for two decades. My core. Humbly, it’s also become a symbol of strength, resilience, heart, power and defiance to so many people around the world. I got this tattoo when I was just a kid. Now I need it to reflect me as a man. All my ink is a rite of passage and spiritual and the MANA (power and spirit) has to be right before we begin. Mana is strong with world renowned Nikko. We talked for hours about the man I am today, compared to who I once was. And who I’ll always be. We all desire to grow and evolve. The mana is right.. let the blood and pain begin. #EvolutionOfTheBull #WheresMyVicodin
You already know this tat hurt like a bitch. Another fly part you gotta peep about the caption was when he went into detail about the eye saying,
“The eye tells the story of a disruptive positive energy always ready to dent the universe.”
That’s exactly what The Rock is doing and this tattoo is a reminder of that everyday.
