It’s Tattoo Time! Where we count down to the launch of TELESA by celebrating tattoos and the Polynesians who rock them. This week’s feature is NOT Samoan. But, he is Hawaiian – which means he’s a longlost Samoan cousin of someone somewhere because everyone knows that all Polynesians originated from the same homeland somewhere. (Drumroll please…) May I present for your tattoo viewing pleasure:
He was born in Hawaii in 1979, of Native Hawaiian, German, Irish and Native American ancestry – and what a beautiful blend that turned out to be. (Please only look at the tattoo.)
In 1999, Jason won Hawaii’s “Model of the Year” and that same year, landed his first acting role in ‘Baywatch Hawaii.’ (Sorry, no tattoo in this picture but it was necessary for providing historical background.)
Jason was mainly known for his role as Ronon Dex in the sci-fi TV series ‘Stargate Atlantis’.(Please zone in on the tattood arm. Ignore everything else that sizzles.)
Jason is married to Lisa Bonet ( remember the Cosby Show?) and they have two children.
In 2008, Jason was attacked with a broken beer glass and needed over 140 stitches in reconstructive surgery. ( which could explain that dashing eyebrow. I am currently trying to figure out how I can convince the Hot Man to shave his eyebrow in a similar fashion.) His most recent role was as Khal Drogo in the scorching TV series ‘Game of Thrones.’ ( I myself have never seen the show, since I never watch R Rated tv. Ever. Ever. Ever.)
Next week, you will be able to see Jason’s tattooed self in action on the big screen as the star in Conan, a role he prepared for by undergoing a strict exercise regimen of 6hr daily workouts and sword training, so he “could move like a lion” when it came to wielding a sword.(Umm you need to close your eyes and imagine the tattoo in this one.)
More reasons why we love Jason Momoa’s tattoo.
And more reasons why we just love Jason Momoa, even if we can’t see his tattoo.
That’s all folks! Yay for loving Tattoos on Polynesians everywhere. (Even when we cant see them.)
