The Rock Covers Up Iconic Bull Tat ... with Bigger Bull Tat”

Dwayne wrote that the horns were purposely drawn pointing straight ahead to represent 'relentless energy and forward progress'.

He took to Instagram a couple of days back to give a sneak peek of what he is calling "The Evolution of the Bull", and followed it up today with a comparison of his old and upgraded tats - as well as a lengthy message as to why he has chose to make the change and cover up the Bull that has become synonymous with who he is and what he is about.

The "Ballers" star took to Instagram earlier in the week to explain why he was covering up his brahma bull, which the help of celebrity tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado. So, Johnson recently underwent 22 hours of tattooing to have the ink changed to reflect his own growth.

Evolution of the bull. Blood, sweat & years.

"The anchor... is in the eye".

The eyes were the main focus of the tattoo because it is "the life, energy, power" of the animal.

Rock says the eye tells the story of a "disruptive positive energy always ready to dent the universe".

The animal's eye could look glaring 'depending on the light and angle, ' but the bull is 'always alone and ready to disrupt the universe and love and protect my family and all things I love with intense passion and gratitude, ' he penned in the heartfelt caption. Cheers to living, learning, evolving and growing. "And to the positive disrupters ready to dent the universe" with the hashtags '#EvolutionOfTheBull #TheDisrupter #TheMana #NowLetsBreakOutTheTequila'.

That's exactly what The Rock is doing and this tattoo is a reminder of that everyday.

Another wrote: "It's your tattoo choice but that is the people's arm and I am strangely saddened". "I am a truly blessed human". "You've got to get up and have faith that the one thing you wanted to happen often times is the best thing that never happened". And who I'll always be. "I let the tattoo heal, live, age a little before I come back to it and layer it see what it needs to give it the sculpting or life it requires to be abandoned because we all know art is never finished it is simply abandoned".

Could anything be more symbolic of The Rock's epic career than the evolution of this giant tattoo?
