Dwayne Johnson Spends 30 Hours Getting Huge Bull Tattoo

Dwayne Johnson has spent a whopping 30 hours in the tattooist's chair having his bull tattoo covered up with a... bull tattoo. You can see him talk about the significant of the bull symbol here:

The 49-year-old had already had work done to improve the original design, but has since gone on to have a complete cover-up.

Johnson took to Instagram to show off the work of tattooist Yomico and revealed he spent 'almost 30 hours' being tattooed.

Sharing a snap of himself watching over the tattooist while he gets to work on his bicep, Johnson wrote: "Evolution of the Bull tattoo is almost complete.

"Day 2 and inking over 25 hours so far with my brother and hyper-realistic specialist @yomicoart in my basement.

"Yomico's masterful in his skill and we've spent many months (almost a year thru Covid) collaborating on details and story that the tattoo will represent.

"Almost done and almost time to break out the tequila."

The next day the former WWE-star spent an additional five hours getting inked.

Sharing more photos on his Instagram, he added: "Close to 30 hrs of tattooing (pretty challenging as my whole upper arm and shoulder wasn't a blank canvas but rather enhancing and adding to what was already there so the level of detail, precision and specific colour for my skin takes a lot of time) with my brother @yomicoart."

Posting the same photos to his own Instagram, tattooist Yomico wrote: "Three days in a row of this journey filled with positive energy, stories and a very beautiful connection that only art can achieve.

"Super grateful for the trust you have placed in me with this commitment brother @therock.

"Cheers and almost close to opening the bottle of Teremana."

Johnson got his first bull design back in his pro-wrestling days and decided to enhance it in 2017.

Writing at the time about why he chose a bull, he said: "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."
