Brock Lesnar’s Tattoos

Last Monday Night on Raw, something epic happened. It’s not often I use the word ”epic” but that’s the best way to describe what happened. A guy named Brock Lesnar returned to World Wrestling Entertainment, and by god did he make an impact! Not only did he return but he executed an F-5 to John Cena, the night after Cena lost in a tremendous match against The Rock. To celebrate Brock’s sensational return to WWE, I’m going to be talking about his tattoos and try my best to research what they mean. 

Brock Lesnar has many tattoos, and like every tattoo, usually they generate a deep and personal meaning to that person.  Therefore I did some research and found out what they mean. I’ll go through each of them individually with a photo of them.

The first is his large back piece design which consists of a monstrous demon skull and sword in the middle, alongside an armless hand on each side. Monstrous can mean something that is shockingly hideous or frightful. I’m not sure exactly if this is the correct reason why Lesnar has this tattoo, but I can see a connection, can you?

The round mound of muscle also has the predator movie creature on his left shoulder, plus a skull on his right shoulder. The skull is probably the most common tattoo. Skulls can serve a number of symbolic purposes. The most common being of death and mortality. They can also allude to the following…..

  • Protection
  • Strength
  • Power
  • Overcoming death
  • Overcoming a tough time
  • A past life, now changed, never to revert.

People often refer to Lesnar’s chest tattoo as a ”penis”. If you ask me, I think it looks more like a sword. I couldn’t actually think or a more befitting name for it. This was by far the most difficult  tattoo to research. Eventually I got somewhere as to what it means. The following is a piece from Cagepotato’s article on the 12 Worst Tattoo’s in MMA: 

“If he wanted something ‘subtly phallic’, he failed. This is in-your-face and it runs smack down the middle of his torso. It’s annoying enough that he’s riding so much hype, but now we have to deal with seeing this thing everytime he’s in the cage.”

I’m afraid that’s all I can get on this tattoo. I asked ”What does Lesnar’s chest tattoo mean” into Google, I found this one answer from wiki answers quite funny….

”It means he is a closet homosexual. You see Brock Lesnar knows that entering into a homosexual relationship may hurt his career. In order to satisfy his lust for penis he had a large vieny one permanently inked between his cleavage.”

That wraps up this column. Feed me your feedback below in the comments section. Would love to know what you think of his tattoos or if you have any yourself. By the way, I know this isn’t a long written column, but I’m aiming to do two maybe three of this length a week. Or I’ll do one of this length and something like a ”Jam-Packed Ramble”. All depending on how much time I have and all. I also want to give a shoutout to @AngryPaul83 who suggested I do a column on Brock’s tattoos. Also follow myself @RayTheRambler and @WrestlinRambles on twitter. Thanks again for reading.

  1. I love Lesnars tattoo’s, although the penis… I mean ‘sword’ one does look slightly awkward, yet adds to the distinction that sets him apart from other wrestlers/combatants.

    Who cares what tattoo’s he has anyway, why should other people dictate what is acceptable and what isn’t. If its just going to piss off the haters even more, good!

  2. Its easy to see that the one on Lesnar’s chest is a sword. I think some people are having a joke when they say he’s a ‘closet homosexual’, lol.

  3. Brock should feud with the (once again) hottest free agent in wrestling – Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner – in a war of tr obscene chest tattoos. Holla, if ya hear me!!

  4. Pretty sure Jason Ellis (who has a satellite radio show) who talks about UFC and shit a bunch started the whole “Cock Chestnar” thing. I know as soon as Brock got that tattoo Ellis has something against him and kept calling it a cock tattoo. Kind of stupid seem as it doesn’t resemble a penis at all, unless your a robot and your have a sword penis. It caught on fast after Ellis started bad mouthing him, as he’s friends with lots of pro athletes and stuff. I just love “cock chestnar”. lol.

    Nice write. Tattoos do usually mean a lot to the person getting them, and I know Vince at least used to look down on people getting tats because it was changing their image. Obviously times are changing and top stars are doing what they want and expressing themselves how they want. It just causes issues with merchandise and vids. You know, because no one will be able to tell it’s Punk if he gets more chest tattooing done.

    • I didn’t know that. When people call it a cock/penis/dick whatever tattoo, I think they’re referring to the top part of it rather than the handle – bottom part. It’s fucking haters if you ask me.

      Thanks and good point about the second paragraph. I kind of agree and disagree with that. Like look at John Cena, he has no tattoos and he could probably make a lot more money in acting away from WWE. Tats can make guys like Albert, Batista, Punk a lot tougher than what they actually are.

  5. P.s….a lot of superstars have crappy ink. A-Ry has some bad crap. I don’t like Big Shows TBH, a tiger on his arm. Randy Orton I don’t actually mind, he has some decent work. Taker, it’s funny to see Sara on his neck is finally gone. A little bit of lighter skin where it was lazered off. hahah.

  6. Tattos are always interesting. Its cool to hear to story about them. Now as for Brocks Tattoos im not too majorily sure there is much of a story or meaning behind them. Maybe his tattoo on his back possible on his shoulder. But the sword on his chest i can’t see how there could be any sort of story to that

    • I remember your tattoo column, it’s still getting viewed to this day. I think it’s like the 5th most viewed column on WR.

      Well his ”sword” tattoo is most unusual and therefore is why I think it represents a bigger meaning, you don’t see many like them.

      • That is becuase when it comes to tattoos everyone is always interested. And i will admit i should have done alot better with that article. Thats why i plan to do a second one that it way better. Thats why i love working on this site my writing continually improves which helps me with my writing assignments in school.

        back to Brock’s tatoo’s honestly not much is known about the sword tatoo or the rest of his lovely art work. But i think that is suppose to be the point he isnt going to tell you. But he wants our imaginations to see what we can come up with. But the sword tatoo idc if there is a reason it is just a horribale tattoo.

  7. Nice article.
    LOOOOOL! So funny that sarcastic comment about it being a penis LOL! If I’m honest I don’t like any of his tattoos but I’m definitely no hater about them. If he likes them then so be it!

  8. I’ve always thought the meaning to the back tattoo, was that he’s slayed personal demons, which would match what you said about the skulls on his shoulders.
    Also, while swords have always been “phallic-esque,” I think his could be interrupted as just a sort of combat thing, or that he’s prepared to face more challenges in life (similar to demons) Might try researching the specific type of sword.

  9. If any of you read, his book Death Clutch is actually pretty good. It was neat to learn about the all the shit that happened after leaving WWE and Japan and such. Not sure if anyone else read it, but I enjoyed.

    • I’m halfway through it now, it is a very good book. He’s very open to the fact that wrestling was all about the money, but is obvious that he does have that drive to put on a good show and perform at the top of his game.

      • I’ll add it to the list of books I need to read, James.

        About money in wrestling, honestly, it doesn’t bother me at all. You can’t compare wrestling to Football, Basketball etc.. where your team for you is passion and players should pay for passion. WWE is more of a business than what a sports team is. Lesnar knows WWE will make big money out of him so he just sees it as it’s only fair he gets a big share.

        • Yeah, I know what your saying. If you read most wrestlers books they’ll go on about how its all about the passion and the ability to perform in front of a crowd.
          This isn’t who Brock Lesnar is and if you compare him to The Rock, as I believe you said before The Rock is already making millions and the only reason for him to have returned is to do what he was brought up to do, entertain the crowd and put on a show like no other. Brock on the other hand has probably come in on the biggest cheque he can get, I’ve nothing against that, to Brock its business and as a fan I hope WWE keeps writing him the big cheques to keep him on our screens.

  10. Brock Lesner The Next Big Homo & the Nasty Part Is his boyfriend Paul Heyman is set to be rejoining him soon in the wwe

  11. Cock Chester is Back In The Wwe ….. So what He Still Sucks no matter what sport he picks Football, Ufc or Wwe & looks Like a Retarded Cro-Magnon Caveman
    need i say more?

  12. Truth hurts dont it … brock all about the $$$ and no Sense Duh must keep Sable happy Brock is her Bitch hahaha
