Robert Downey Jr. Arm Tattoos
The first of the two Robert Downey Jr tattoos is the word Susie Q on his upper part of his left bicep. In 2003, when Downey met producer Susan Levin, his checkered past of drugs and arrests seemed to magically turn around. He said that she was motivated, grounded and a really hard worker. While he may have fell in love with her, Levin would not marry Downey until he gave up all of the drugs for good.
Susan Levin sure must have been something special. Downey changed his life around, married her and introduced her to the world as his new wife on the Oprah Winfrey show. She landed a place in his heart and on his arm as one of the meaningful Robert Downey Jr tattoos.
The second of the Robert Downey Jr tattoos is a tribute to his son Indio. It is a peculiar tattoo that must hold some type of meaning that no one has yet to unveil. His son’s name, Indio, is written on his right bicep, surrounded by some type of hanging picture frame and a blue head that seems to be watching over it. It is sweet and intriguing yet somewhat dark and mysterious.
