Michael J. Fox Just Got His First Tattoo and It Has a Very Special Meaning


I've always wanted to get a tattoo, but almost always have problems with coming with a design that's "meaningful" to me. By the time I finally settle on something I think will be a good choice, I end up losing all enthusiasm for it and think of another image that'll "speak" to me, and the whole cycle continues all over again. Maybe one day in the future I'll come up with a design I like.

I shouldn't feel too bad about it though, because one of the most likable actors of all time, Michael J. Fox, didn't get his first tattoo until he was 57 years old, and the story behind the design he chose is absolutely adorable.

So there's a good chance he won't regret the ink on his body, unlike these people, I'd imagine.

If you're not familiar with Michael J. Fox, his story is an incredible one. He was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 1961 and grew up wanting to be a professional hockey player. I'd imagine that's a passion for lots of young Canadians growing up. It wasn't long for him to discover that his real calling was to become an actor, and he did. He starred in some huge films, most notably the Back to the Future trilogy.
