In an episode of WWE.com’s Superstar Ink in August of 2015, Seth sat down with fellow superstar and long-time friend, Corey Graves and explained the meaning behind his two tattoos. You can find photos and direct quotes from Seth himself below in additon to links to all the photos and video from Seth’s episode.
Bushido “The Way Of The Warrior”
“This is my first tattoo. Bushido, it’s essentially the samurai code. It’s the way they live their life. Ironically enough I found it in a movie. The Last Samurai, with Tom Cruise. Which is actually a phenomenal film. The movie was along those lines too. The dude trying to figure himself out and stuff like that and he found that peace in samurai and I thought it was a really cool message and kind of a really cool, simple way to live your life.”
“Remnants of a burning page”
“I got it when I was 19, and I haven’t had it touched up in a long time. I was straight-edge when I was a teenager, an introvert. So I stayed home and listened to, at that point, what was like Korn and new metal and stuff like that. But whatever they were singing about was what I was feeling. Burning page and saying Forever, like is mostly a reminder of where I came from and, like that period of my life cause that’s when I really started to focus on WWE and you know turning sixteen and trying to figure out what you want to do with your life and not really having any answers.”
