Meaning: Cain got this tattoo to show how he and his family had to overcome many difficulties and still has not forgotten his past and where he came from. While talking about the tattoo, Cain said,
“I got this tattoo for two reasons. One, for everything my parents did to come over to this country, all the hardships they had crossed the border. ‘Brown pride’ when we were growing up meant ‘Mexican pride. Another reason why I got is because when I was growing up I didn’t have anybody to look up to. There’s nobody that was my size that was Mexican that looked like me that I could see in the media. I pretty much didn’t have those dreams of ‘Hey, I can do that stuff. I can be in the media, I can play professional sports.’ I didn’t have that. I didn’t have anybody to look up to so now that I’m in that position, I put ‘Brown Pride’ on my chest to let people know ‘Hey, I’m Mexican. I’m proud to be Mexican. I’m doing good things.”

Tattoo: The right side of Cain’s body contains a tattoo of a deity, a woman who has her hands joined in prayer.
