Tua toughening up.
Miami Dolphins’ star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa turned heads this summer with his extensive new arm tattoo.
Sharing photos on Wednesday, the Dolphins revealed Tagovailoa’s full sleeve tattoo on his right arm, despite him being left-handed.
Many Dolphins and professional wrestling fans see the tattoo as a cultural reference resembling WWE champion Roman Reigns.
Wrestling enthusiasts have taken to the comments, drawing comparisons between Tagovailoa and Reigns. Meanwhile, Dolphins fans interpret the tattoo as a symbol of his toughness and potential to lead the team to a Super Bowl victory.

Commenting on the pictures, one fan expressed their belief that this would be Tagovailoa’s year, overlooking his ranking and emphasizing their belief in his ability to win a championship.
Another fan referred to Tagovailoa as the “true Tribal Chief,” referencing Reigns’ nickname. Additionally, the tattoo reportedly influenced a fantasy football player to move Tagovailoa up to the top spot in their rankings.
With Tagovailoa’s Pro Bowl performance and leading the Dolphins to the playoffs last year, fans anticipate a bright future for the quarterback, as long as he manages to stay healthy throughout the season.
