Michael has only one tattoo on his body that he got on his body to help him in his role as Erik Killmonger in the Black Panther. Let us look at the tattoo and the story behind it.
1. ‘Map and Eye’ Tattoo
Tattoo: The left side of the actor’s upper back contains a tattoo of an outline of a map. There is also an eye tattooed inside the outline.
Meaning: The map outline is of the continent of Africa and the eye inside it is the Egyptian symbol, known as the Eye of Horus that is the symbol of protection, royal power, and good health which is the reason he got it on his body. Michael got the tattoo of the outline of Africa to help him prepare for his role in Black Panther as it is the country where the fictional city of Wakanda is situated in the film that is his home.
