Some of John Finlay’s Prominent Tattoos and Their Meaning


John Finlay Tattoos

John Finlay is a name that is taking over the internet right now. All thanks to Netflix stranger-than-fiction docuseries, ‘Tiger King,’ now the whole world knows his name, face, and body covered with tattoos. John Finlay has more than fifty tattoos on his body, but we are going to include only the prominent ones.

In an interview, directors of the show, Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin, revealed why Finlay was bare-chested throughout the whole series. The answer was, he wanted to show off his tattoos. While talking about his other trivial tattoos, Finlay’s body is covered with many large and small tribal designs.

So, let’s discuss some of the prominent tattoos that we noticed on the series on Finlay’s body.

John Finlay’s Love For Joe Exotic – “Privately Owned by Joe Exotic” tattoo

We are pretty much sure you noticed a big pelvic tattoo on Finlay’s. The tattoo read, “Privately owned by Joe Exotic.” Joe Exotic and Finlay started out as lovebirds, but over the course of time, their sweet relationship turned sour.

John Finlay seemed proud of his tattoos, and his love for Joe Exotic, that’s one of the reasons he was dwelling shirtless all through the series. While he was walking bare-chested out of his boastfulness, we noticed something.

There’s a tattoo on his right chest with a big cat, under which there’s a text that reads, “Joe.” Moreover, Finlay also has a text inked across his upper arm that reads, “For My Husband, Joe.”

As we mentioned earlier, John Finlay just got a rework for his old tattoos, which were reminders of his past relationship with Joe Exotic. The reworked version of ‘Privately Owned by Joe Exotic’ has a new look now.

After his split Joe Exotic, it makes no sense to still have a tattoo that reads you are owned by the same person. So, to make the message clear, he covered his old tattoo with a furious bull’s head, but we still can see old tattoo leaking from the sides. But we will give it to him; he did what he could.
