Brock Lesnar’s Bad Tattoo Can Now Actually Kill You

The Beast’s chest ink gets turned into a real-world weapon; how long until he brings the Lesnar Knife to the ring?

Brock Lesnar is a bad man with an even worse tattoo, though we’ve yet to meet anyone brave enough to tell him that to his face.

Instead, people make real-life versions of the knife Lesnar has inked on his chest, which is yet another testament to the pants-shitting fear the Beast Incarnate is capable of instilling in mere mortals. The man who just earned a lifetime reprieve from Suplex City? New York artist Jimmy DiResta – famous for pieces like this AK-47 guitar or his WTF-worthy “Which Blade” – who saw Brock’s tat and decided to bring it to life.

“When I saw Brock’s tattoo, it jumped out at me,” DiResta told “I had to make it.”

Smart move, dude. Much like the man himself, the Lesnar knife is genuinely terrifying to look at, and can slice through watermelons with ease (we’ve never actually seen Brock do this, but, c’mon, you think a piece of fruit could withstand his power?)

If you don’t know the story behind Lesnar’s tattoo, as he revealed in his 2011 biography, he got it while involved in a legal dispute with the WWE that prevented him from competing in New Japan Pro-Wrestling. Because Vince McMahon wouldn’t allow him to work with the organization, Lesnar felt as though the WWE CEO was holding a sword to his throat, so he decided to get the tattoo on a random drunken night to remember the feeling forever.

Whether or not it’s the worst tattoo in sports has been a topic of much debate, but it’s definitely the only bit of ink that can actually kill you. You know, kinda like Brock.
