Similar to the members of his Samoan bloodline, Solo also has a traditional tattoo on his body designed by the tattoo artist, Michael Fatutoa. In Solo Sikoa’s own words, he offered insights into the tattoos embellishing his body. Highlighting the ink on his entire right arm, known as “Battle Scars,” Solo shared that it symbolizes the multitude of battles he has faced in different facets of life—emotionally, physically, and mentally. The tattoo serves as a tangible manifestation of the varied patterns of pain etched into his journey, transforming his skin into a canvas that narrates the stories of his struggles and resilience.

Continuing his narrative, Solo Sikoa delved into the meaning behind the tattoo on his left arm and shoulder, also designed by the same artist who inked his previous tattoo, emphasizing that it encapsulates the word “fearless.” In his own words, Solo expressed the sentiment that, regardless of the challenges presented before him, he remains steadfast and resilient. Additionally, he opened up about a deliberate choice, leaving the left chest part devoid of ink.
