“He llevado este toro en mi ADN durante dos décadas… se ha convertido en un símbolo de fuerza, resiliencia, corazón, poder y desafío para muchas personas en el mundo. Me hice este tatuaje cuando era un niño. Ahora necesito algo que me refleje como hombre”, escribió junto a un video en el que aparece junto al tatuador Nikko Hurtado.

De acuerdo con Johnson, realizar el nuevo tatuaje tomó 22 horas en total y cada detalle es “un reflejo de historia personal”.

“Las grietas y el daño en el hueso representan las duras lecciones de la vida que he aprendido con el paso de los años… Los cuernos, que apuntan hacia adelante, no hacia arriba o hacia afura, representan una energía implacable y progreso”, detalló en una fotografía del resultado final.

Agregó que el núcleo del tatuaje es el ojo del animal, pues allí se encuentra “la vida, la energía y el poder”.

Evolution of the bull. Blood, sweat & years. 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

Through this experience I’ve learned a lot. Everyone always sees what is on the outside what is shown of our lives no one truly knows behind the scenes. @therock is a true gentleman how I came to tattoo him I do not know. I am a truly blessed human. (Thank you Matt) the process of tattooing a client starts with a meeting always finding out what it is they want. Tattoos are markings on the body that are with you for ever. Imagine choosing a birthmark. The tattoo has to represent you, who you are and what you feel, your image and your personality. @therock and I spend time going back and fourth showing him different ideas, different horns different mana. I always want to do what I want to do but I always have to remind myself that when I tattoo a client it is for them and theirs to wear the rest of their lives. I am excited to tweak and build this tattoo a little further after it heals. When I complete a tattoo in one sitting it is never finished my clients all know this to well. I let the tattoo heal, live, age a little before I come back to it and layer it see what it needs to give it the sculpting or life it requires to be abandoned because we all know art is never finished it is simply abandoned. I am grateful I am blessed I have been given the new gift of knowing about “Mana” thank you world your are nothing short of amazing. Thank you @therock till next time same channel same page! It’s your friendly neighborhood tattoo artist.
