The Tribal Chief has spoken about the meaning behind the tattoos and also described Umaga’s influence by claiming that most of it revolved around him.

It all revolves around our cousin Eki – Umaga. At the time, he was a big WWE Superstar and he passed away way too early, but he was the one that was the fuel behind us getting tatted up. He had this lady back in Pensacola that was kind of hooking him up, giving him a little bit of a discount here and there, and he was getting a lot of work done at the time.” “He was just showing her different prints and trying to give her the heads-up of our culture, and the customs, and the patterns, and the sequences that kind of fit and how they mould together.”(h/t Hot New Whip Hot)
