Paul Booth Tattooed the Undertaker With a Demonic Portrait
The Undertaker actually approached Booth at a tattoo convention in New Jersey. To give the WWE superstar some privacy, Booth decided to work on Taker’s gigantic right arm in the wrestler’s hotel room.
“[Undertaker is a] big, menacing guy,” describes Booth. “He had to duck and turn sideways to walk in the hotel room. I’m like, ‘Holy crap, this guy is huge.’ His arm was so huge it was like doing a back piece, I couldn’t even wrap my hand around it.”
As for the demonic portrait Paul Booth tattooed on the wrestler, it was inspired by the supernatural and unholy character the Undertaker has brought to life for three decades. “The way he would come in to his victim … I did this tattoo of a demon lurching forward,” Booth says while mimicking the piece.
Booth also credits the Undertaker as perhaps the toughest man he’s ever inked. Taker didn’t even flinch once during the session, sitting like a rock while Booth inked the black and white portrait.
