Jamie Elliott is a young professional Australian rules footballer who plays for the Collingwood Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). Jamie is quite close to his mother as he had lost his father at a very young age. He, just like other footballers, is a tattoo lover, and his body speaks it all. This article is all about multiple tattoos that cover Jamie’s body from top to bottom. Let us examine them.
Jamie is known to have suffered through many personal tragedies in his young life, but, with the support of his family, he has managed to push through and fulfill his dreams as an AFL player.
1. Angel Tattoo
Tattoo: On his right forearm, there is an angel tattooed.
Meaning: Angel and angel wings are the harbingers of good luck and wealth. They are also linked with the aspects of excellence, uprightness, yearning, and direction.
2. Pagoda on Left Arm
Tattoo: On his upper left arm, Jamie has got the tattoo of Japanese Temple, Pagoda.
Meaning: Pagodas are the popular characters of wisdom. The reason for their sacred nature is linked to the ancient times when they were used for storing the relious and sacred texts and books. A golden pagoda is frequently utilized in Feng Shui or with talismans(magical/good luck objects). It is said that men often get Pagoda tattooed to show their masculinity and their contemplating look towards their life.
3. Chest/Shoulder Tattoo
Tattoo: On his left shoulder, there is a massive bird tattoo along with multiple flowers. The bird represents the phoenix.
The character of a phoenix is easily recognizable as it is often talked about. It indicates birth, demise, and resurrection, thus, reflecting the cycle of life and death and ultimately, its renewal. People get the phoenix inked to mark a turn in their lives. It acts as a source of reminder for people that we are strong. Just like the phoenix rises from its ashes, we should rise; get back on our feet, and take a leap towards our goal. Nothing can stop us if we are strong, motivated, and hold perseverance.
It may be inked at a specific time of life when the tattoo wearer acts smart and strong and rises high by overcoming his fears and hard times.

On his inner left bicep, Jamie has got the tattoo of the word, ‘DAD’. He claims to be his first one which he got at at age of seventeen.

His father expired when he was too young and he got this tattoo to honor his late father.
My heart just sank, one of the hardest experiences of my life. He was in a coma for about three and a half weeks, after waking up he had brain damage, he a lot of things going wrong for him and not much going right.”
“Those two things have helped me as a person. I have grown up a lot quicker than a kid has to.”
