Mikkel Jensen Chest Tattoos 10 Top Male Models & Their Tattoo Stories

“I like when people take an interest in my tattoos. My favorite is the one on my chest. It is an hourglass with wings to symbolize that time is “flying away.” I had it made because I have had such a great time the last couple years and it feels like the time goes by too fast. I like it the most cause it reminds me of all the good things in my life. Of course the one with my brother, sister, mom and dads birth dates means a lot to me as well.” (Details)

“The man on the top of my right arm is Archie Taylor also known to me and my sisters as Grandad. He past away this summer and he was a huge part of my life. I spoke to him all the time, especially when travelling as he loved to know what i was doing.  [I] dont have a great relationship with my father so my Grandad was like a father figure to me and has been very influential in the way i went to live my life. I can’t speak to him anymore but now he is with me in every picture and he is constantly there on my arm to remind me how to live my life and not to get caught up in everything.” (Contributor)

“My forehead tattoo says “war inside my head”. It’s a song by a band called Suicidal Tendencies. I got my first tattoo when I was 16. I got it covered up cause I got the same tattoo but bigger elsewhere. I have a plan for my back piece, but I don’t have any other plans really. Most of my tattoos are just stupid ideas, none have any meaning. [They are] just fun.” (Morphoman)
