Pete Hegseth Tattoo

Pete : I always wanted tattoos. Thankfully, my father dissuaded me early in life because what I wanted out of high school was a basketball hoop with a flaming basketball going through the hoop. All I cared about was basketball, I played basketball in college, my dad was a basketball coach.

It started with a cross on my forearm with a sword on the middle of it. It was designed by my wife and I to represent Matthew 10:34: ” I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” Then it was off to the races. I had a lot of real estate and a lot of ideas.

The first one was on my left bicep, so small you wouldn’t even know I have it. Then the other ones, so far I said I’m going to confine myself to my right chest and my right arm. So I have 11 or 12 more on my right arm. I’d have it even more full if it were not for COVID at this point. I have a few blank spaces that are staring at me.

I knew inside my soul this was something I wanted to do and I’ve finally hit the chapter in my life that I’m able to do it.
