As I stepped up to his table, I noticed he didn’t really have his iconic tattoo under the eye. With the prevalence of ink on people nowadays, I was actually surprised that wasn’t real. As he signed I did ask about the tattoo. He said the show did want him visibly inked. They wanted something a little larger but he did have some say in what he wore. They provided several choses and he found one he liked. He mentioned there was backstories for the choices he had.
