Last week as I was perusing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Instagram account, which I do every day because it’s just so damn motivational, I noticed him talking about the “evolution of the bull” in a video of himself sitting in a tattoo parlor.

I didn’t give it much thought because that bull tattoo he’s been sporting on his bicep is synonymous with the man. I mean, look, that freaking bull is everywhere when it comes to The Rock.

It’s on his shirts…

It’s in his gym…

It’s on his shoes…

It’s even on his damn luggage…

But there he was talking about changing his tattoo….

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

Little did I know when The Rock said he was updating his bull tattoo did he mean he was REALLY updating it. Check the final product out below…

I am having a real hard time seeing a bull there, but it certainly looks pretty badass. PLUS it will go very nicely with his new beard.

Naturally, this being The Rock, the tattoo has numerous inspirational messages attached to it.

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.

Don’t know about you, but I’m ready to running through a freaking brick wall right about now, dammit.
