What Does The Rock's Tattoo Mean?

This has probably been asked a lot.
I've just never seen it been asked.

So what does his big tattoo that's on his left arm mean?
I was recently watching 24/7 Mayweather Mosley and
Shane Mosley has a very similar tattoo on his left arm.

The Rock



Mosley



Sorry for the big huge picture of The Rock and small picture of Mosley.

Re: What Does The Rock's Tattoo Mean?

I'm not too positive but it may have something to do with his Samoan heritage.

Umaga had similar ones.

Haha. Didn't know everyone had already said that.

Re: What Does The Rock's Tattoo Mean?

It's Samoan tribal art, traditionally obtained by a young warrior when he reaches manhood, and generally added to as he gets older. The tattoo essentially tells the warrior's life story so far, hence being added to, and is more or less like having your own autobiography inked into your skin. It also means that every single one is different. Rocky himself explained it somewhere, but I can't for the life of me remember where... possibly on one of the extras on the Walking Tall DVD?

So legend has it, tribal elders are able to read the tattoos and often do so at funerals as part of the eulogy.

I just found this:

This explains the whole thing.
I don't know how to copy and paste it here.

Re: What Does The Rock's Tattoo Mean?

Rock's has a Mauri Warrior (Samoan) meaning behind it. Mosely's has an African warrior (possibly Zulu) meaning behind his. They're VERY simular from a distance, but a closer look shows that no detail are the same at all.
