The tribal face tattoo is one of Tyson’s most recognizable features. He got it days before his 2003 fight against Clifford Etienne.

In an interview with Graham Bensinger in 2012, the legendary boxer shared the story behind the tattoo. He said:

“I was going to get a bunch of hearts and stuff. That would have been really stupid. Victor Perez, the tattoo artist said ‘I don’t do that. I can not do that’. I said ‘What do you think I should take?’ Because I was confused. Victor Perez is a good guy and said “Come back in a few days, I’ll try to write some stuff”.

Mike Tyson continued:

“Two days later he called and said ‘Mike, I have some tribal stuff’. I said ‘Wow! put another one over there.’ I like it.’ So he did.

Mike Tyson explains how he tames his aggression

Mike Tyson recently revealed how he controls his inner aggression these days.

In an interview with Muscle and Health Magazine, the former heavyweight champion shared that he used mushrooms and weed to tame his inner rage. He also claimed that cannabis might have helped him inside the ring during his fighting days. Tyson said:

“I like to take shrooms and smoke before I fight. I take psychedelics every day, shrooms.”

He continued:

“Cannabis is good for training. I just wish I smoked when I was fighting – I really lost there from an athlete’s perspective. If I had smoked during my boxing career, I probably wouldn’t have been so aggressive.

Tyson was recently spotted in a wheelchair, being wheeled through Miami International Airport by an attendant. The alarming scene has narrowly sparked rumors about his health, but the boxing icon said it was because of a flare-up of sciatica, which he says is the only illness he currently suffers from.

According MayoClinic.org, sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body.

Although the pain associated with sciatica can be intense, most cases resolve with non-operative treatments within a few weeks.
