The social media world took note when ex-WWE superstar Dave Bautista debuted new social justice-inspired tattoos this weekend in support of the George Floyd protests and the Black Lives Matter movement.
This past weekend the former WWE champion and Guardians of the Galaxy star posted a picture to Instagram of fresh tattoos he received on each hand.
“Be relentless in the pursuit of justice,” he wrote in the caption of the black and white photo. “Unintimidated in the fight against oppression. We’re together to remind each other what we’re fighting for.”
The 51-year-old had the opening words to the Preamble of the United States Constitution, “we the people,” inked on the outside of his left hand, and in reference to Floyd’s May 25 death, he had “I can’t breathe” tattooed on the side of his right hand.
Bautista, who went by the ring name “Batista” during his storied career in the WWE, has been outspoken about his support for social justice reform and his criticism of President Donald Trump.
