Mike Tyson Definitely Does Not Regret His Face Tattoo

Iron Mike said in a recent interview that he doesn't regret his face tattoo.

Mike Tyson is one of the most famous boxers of all time. His dangerous and fast style of punching was prolific and it awarded him numerous accolades.


All of that aside, probably the most notable feature of Tyson is his facial tattoo. The piece that surrounds his eye is immediately recognizable, and has gotten its own bit of fame after being spoofed in the movie The Hangover 2.

Tyson recently sat down with Sports Illustrated for an interview where he was asked if he regretted the tattoo he got from S. Victor Whitmill. 


Tyson didn't seem the least bit regretful, "No. A lot of stuff happened out of this tattoo, a lot of good stuff. Other young athletes come to me and say, it's because of you they call it the Mike Tyson."

Thank goodness Tyson doesn't regret it! He'd probably lay a mean beatdown on anyone who would question his decision to keep it. I'm still afraid of those right hands. They don't call him "The Baddest Man on the Planet" for nothing.
