Tim Superman tattoo

Tattoo: There is a logo of superman tattooed on Tim’s right bicep.

Meaning: Superman tattoo is one of the oldest pieces which Tim has. It was in 1996 when he got it inked that too by using his brother’s fake id. The Superman tattoo is the symbol of strength, endurance, honor, stableness, and brute force. Tim got this as his first body tattoo because he thought it was cool to have this one!

“I was 16 years old and I went down to this place in Jersey with my brother’s fake ID,” Howard laughs. “It was 1996 and I think Superman was a thing. I think Shaquille O’Neal had a Superman, so I was like, ‘I’m gonna get a Superman.’ It wasn’t the smartest idea, but I was cool the next day in school. At least I thought I was cool, everybody else probably thought I was an idiot (laughs).”

50. Dragons

“Hold in awe” type of creatures are dragons according to the Asiatic culture. Any sort of dragon, be it Chinese dragon or Jade dragon, reflects acumen, sanity, willpower, strong arm, longevity, lastingness, prosperity, and fortune.

51. Crucifix

The crucifix is a heart and across. It is one of the most beautiful and significant combinations for any person to consider if he or she is going for a decent tattoo that holds some faith. Being a more popular design in case of women, it depicts a blend of emotions. To generalize, a cross hooked up with a heart can symbolize a clasping of love and belief, or even can be understood as a token of remembrance of somebody dear to you but has now is no more with you.

52. Woman and A Man

Also, Tim Howard includes a young woman and a man, as his own mother and grandfather in a military-civil code. We have known for the fact that he got this tattoo from Aurora Studio in Lancaster in the month of May. Co-owner Sam Wisniewski explicitly says, “He brought in some photographs to work from. He had obviously thought about what he wanted and he sat down and talked about it. If the design is really personal and we know the full story, that makes the design much better.” The peculiar point here is, Howard doesn’t unbutton his shirt after matches.

 he also has portraits of his children, his grandfather and others—the tattoo with the best story behind it is the piece of script on his hand. “I’m a product of the golden era of hip-hop and Nas is the greatest MC of all time,” Howard says. “I’m not a ‘wanna meet you’ type of person, but I had to meet Nas. I pulled out all the stops, talked to a bunch of friends, and I ended up going backstage and meeting him.”

Hand Tattoos

“I was like, ‘Yo, this might be a little weird, but if you sign my hand I would love to get it tattooed,’” he continues. “So he signs my hand. It’s midnight, I’m calling all over Denver trying to find one of my tattoo artists but no one is open. So I had to sleep with my hand off the bed to make sure it wouldn’t smudge. So that’s my favorite. For sure. Easily.”
