Kid Rock Arm Tattoo
The ‘Paul’ tattoo that Kid Rock has on his left arm is a tribute to a deceased cousin to whom Kid Rock was particularly close. It is widely suggested that Paul tragically took his own life.
Kid Rock Back Tattoo
Another Kid Rock tattoo that may be of significance to many of his fans is the American Eagle that adorns his upper back. The tattoo is a typical example of the ‘Americana’ genre of tattooing, which is a form of ‘old school tattooing’ recognizable by its use of heavy outlines, lack of shading, and an abundance of black or dark blue ink. Often, the subject of these tattoos will portray a particularly ‘American’ symbol, with a bald eagle being a perfect example.
