Michael J. Fox Gets First Tattoo; Pays For It With Hoverboard

 

The story behind the tattoo is amazing.

 

At age 57, Michael J. Fox has decided to get his first tattoo!

 

 

Fox was inked at legendary Bang Bang Tattoo in NYC. In exchange, he hooked is artists up with a hoverboard and self-tying shoes (from Back To The Future, duh.)

As for the tattoo, the story is pretty remarkable.

First tattoo, sea turtle, long story

A post shared by Michael J Fox (@realmikejfox) on

 

His tattoo artist, Bang Bang McCurdy, explained the significance:

 

“Michael was telling me that there was a transformation for him with his career decisions when he was swimming in Saint John. He spotted this turtle with a chunk missing from its fin and a scar on his face. And that turtle let him swim with him for about a half an hour. He made a transcending decision right after that. So that turtle was pretty significant to him.”
