Mike Tyson’s tribal art face tattoo has become his trademark, and he can thank his tattoo artist for steering him away from his first choice.
Tyson sat down with Graham Bensinger for an interview and explained that his first choice for the face tat was to get a bunch of hearts all over his mug – for some unknown reason – but he was talked out of it by his tattoo artist only minutes before ink hit skin.
Tyson was, and still is, one of the most intimidating dudes on the planet. He might be a little less scary if his face looked like a Valentine’s Day card. Watch Mike explain how he almost became “The Man of Hearts.”
