Meaning: Chuck got this ink done out of nowhere when he was getting ready for his Slayer Concert back in 1992. He just wanted to do something crazy and the result was this ink on his head.
“It says Koei-Kan which is the martial arts style I started in first. It means a place of peace and prosperity.”
