Roman Reigns previously spoke about the importance of tattoos in his bloodline
Roman Reigns and The Usos are currently representing the Anoa’i family in WWE. Over the years, the likes of The Rock, Umaga, and Rosey have all represented their bloodline in the company and showcased the importance of tattoos in their heritage.
Reigns’ fellow WWE colleague and relative, Tamina, has also highlighted the importance of tattoos in their family tree.
In the past, The Head of the Table himself has spoken about the meaning behind his tattoos. He also described Umaga’s influence by claiming that most of it revolved around him. Reigns told Inked Magazine:
“It all revolves around our cousin Eki – Umaga. At the time, he was a big WWE Superstar and he passed away way too early, but he was the one that was the fuel behind us getting tatted up. He had this lady back in Pensacola that was kind of hooking him up, giving him a little bit of a discount here and there, and he was getting a lot of work done at the time.”
He further elaborated on his body ink:
“He was just showing her different prints and trying to give her the heads-up of our culture, and the customs, and the patterns, and the sequences that kind of fit and how they mold together.”
