Bull tattoos are symbolic of masculinity as far as the Samoans are concerned. Samoa’s rich history and cultural diversity has ensured that the art of tattooing, first introduced more than two thousand years ago in Samoa, has burgeoned into a global movement! Tatau, the Samoan word for tattoo, portrays correctness and workmanlike traits. These two traits have led to the concept of tattoos being masculine, and bull tattoos, more so! Apart of its rich cultural magnificence, why should one give attention to the various vagaries of the Samoans? And what do they have to do with the concept of bull tattoos?
Did you know that one of the most famous wrestlers of our times, Dwayne Johnson alias The Rock, is a Samoan who can trace his ancestry back to the Polynesian island of Samoa? The Rock has single-handedly raised awareness of the bull tattoo, with his impressively built body sporting the Rock Brahma Bull Tattoo. Any questions about his masculinity? The bull tattoo is an image of a wild bull head with wild and stabbing red eyes, etched in ink on his right arm.
The Bull, being the symbol of the sun sign Taurus, thus holds a double meaning for The Rock, who is also a Taurus. Also, the Brahma bull is said to be the elite in bulls, weighting in at approximately one ton, and one of the most ferocious bulls ever. Thus, The Rock’s Brahma bull tattoo symbolizes his drive to be the best in the world of Wrestling! Whilst the bull tattoo on the upper right arm of The Rock portrays his strength, dominating nature and affinity for danger and violence, his upper left arm “puamana” tattoo shows the other, more reserved side of him; the gentle side that shows his love for his family and background.
One of the biggest factors that makes Dwayne Johnson stand out from the rest of the crowd is The Rock Brahma Bull Tattoo, which shows his diligence, ambition and power to be the best that he can be. This is seen in his acting as well as his extreme devotion to be not only physically powerful, but also psychologically in tune with his roots and family.
