For years, we were so used to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s “Brahma Bull” tattoo on his right arm. It was simple but it was also a classic trademark from a fan favorite wrestler turned actor. About four months ago, The Rock revealed he was changing up the tattoo on his right arm in a big way.

But even though it was a stark change, it was a work in progress and we hadn’t seen the finished product…until now.

The Rock unveiled the finished tattoo which took four sessions and 30 hours to complete. I, like many others, am deathly terrified of needles so there’s no way in hell you’re going to see me get a tattoo. But I can appreciate great looking tattoos and this is awesome.

If you were looking for a comparison from The Rock’s old tattoo to his new one, he posted a pic on Instagram from August after his third of four sessions. It really is a huge difference.

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
