Like so many of the superstars signed with World Wrestling Entertainment, Brock Lesnar has a variety of tattoos, all of which are visually appealing but with the sword on his chest being particularly iconic. What is the significance of this design? When did Lesnar get it, and for what reason?

Well, Lesnar explains in his book, Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination and Survival, that he got this tattoo in 2005 shortly after he left World Wrestling Entertainment and when he was very stressed about where his life was headed.

“I felt like life was holding a sword right up against my throat, so I went under the ink gun because I never wanted to forget exactly how I felt at that time,” Lesnar explained. “The tattoo on my chest has so much meaning to me. In some ways, it’s funny, because the period of my life that I’m talking about is a time I so want to forget, but I know I can use this memory as motivation.”

Lesnar left the WWE in 2005 after his controversial match against Goldberg. He then headed to New Japan Pro Wrestling for two years. But after a seven year absence, Lesnar returned to the WWE in April of 2012.

He is now signed to the Raw brand, and he’s getting ready to have a rematch with Goldberg after 12 years. Goldberg made his return on Monday Night Raw last week, and on October 24th, Lesnar himself makes an appearance and addresses the feud with Goldberg.

The other tattoos Lesnar has include a giant skull on his back and another skull on his shoulder, but if there’s any particular significance to these, Lesnar has not revealed it.
