Joseph is also a patron of the NGO Positive Women. He is married to Persia White, an actress whom he met during the filming of Vampire Diaries. This article is devoted to his few yet distinctive body tattoos. Let us explore them!
1. ‘Birds on Shoulder’ Tattoo
Tattoo: On the left side of his upper body, we can see a widely spread tattoo of multiple flying birds.
Meaning: Birds flying in the group are the symbol of harmony, leadership, soundness, and sociability. But, the birds themselves are symbolic of sovereignty, keenness, open-mindedness, high spirits, and the passion for independence in the tattoo wearer, implying the hidden desire of the tattoo wearer.
The flying birds with pen feathers are another way of reflecting the far-sightedness and imagination besides showing willpower, spirituality, and determination.
2. Roaring Panther Tattoo
Tattoo: On Joseph’s right bicep, you can see the face of a roaring panther tattooed.
Meaning: The tattoo represents the face of the blue tiger, as claimed by Joseph. The tattoo is symbolic of character traits like the rawness, aggressiveness, defensive proficiency, madness, swiftness, magnificence, strength, power, and the fact that the tattoo wearer is a massive and intellectual being, just like the blue tiger/panther.

Tiger color is also liked with the two important aspects, i.e., the play of the sun and shadow. It portrays the intertwining of life and demise, which are the two rules of this universe.
3. Triangle Tattoo
Tattoo: On his upper back, there is a single tattoo that shows a triangle.
Meaning: The geometrical triangle tattoo has multiple meanings, like a sacred meaning that denotes the identification of male authority, originality, inventiveness, and love. The peak stands for the stability of different points across cultures and beliefs.
But why would Joeseph choose such a design for his body?
The answer is his childhood friendship!!
