For decades, the Undertaker’s menacing shadow has loomed over the wrestling landscape. With his mystical and eerie skills within the ring, many wouldn’t dare to cross his path. The one standout thing about the legendary sports entertainer’s persona is that he has ink all over his arms. The tattoos are such a deep part of his personality that it is almost impossible to trace the difference between the Deadman and Mark Calloway.
Throughout his 30-year wrestling career, he has undertaken plenty of character changes, but the one thing that remained constant was his tattoos. Shockingly enough, there are many exciting stories about his tattoos, and some of the facts about Undertaker’s tattoos speak volumes about Mark Calloway.
Paul Booth is known for working his ink magic on his clients. The tattoo artist uses black and grey ink to create dark, spooky pieces. He has a massive fan-following and is well-reputed among tattoo connoisseurs. As Booth’s work is renowned for its surreal and mysterious nature, it is no surprise that The Undertaker went for his services in New Jersey’s tattoo convention. Paul has reportedly said that he took inspiration from the Deadman himself while he tattooed many demons and wizards on his arm. The demonic portrait on his bicep is a perfect depiction of “Undertaker rolling his eyes before a pinfall.”
The story of his first tattoo is quite compelling. While in Las Vegas, the Ministry of Darkness man got his first ink impression from none other than “Smiling Paul.” The Deadman couldn’t forget this experience thanks to the Ultimate Warrior and the Hell Angles members, who were there to watch him get it.
Taker recalled, “Paul Bearer was with me. We went straight from the arena to here.” “The rest of the room was Hell’s Angels. Word got out that Undertaker was there, and they wanted to see how I would do with my first tattoo. It was no small tattoo; it took up pretty much my whole forearm. So everybody’s there. Everybody’s partying and having a good time. That session went on for around eight hours.” he continued.
Mark said that he had no time to recover and went straight to fight the Warrior, who gave him a pretty tough time in the ring.
Undertaker has many devilish tattoos, courtesy of Paul Booth. One such wicked impression is that of a “dancing skeleton” on the back of his neck. The skeleton depicts the warrior that he was during his fighting years. In an interview on a Canadian talk show “Off The Record”, he revealed, “that is the fighting skeleton.” He added, “A lot of my tattoos have to do with skeletons, skulls, and all that. That’s the war skeleton right there.” It just reveals another layer of his personality.
