Sometimes, mythical creatures are real. We have no proof for the existence of elves or fairies, but for a good chunk of the 20th century, a giant walked this earth. We’re talking about Andre the Giant, the highest paid wrestling superstar of the ‘70s and ‘80s. This titan of a man stood 7 foot 4 inches tall, weighing in at over 500 pounds. Despite this massive frame, Andre had the face of a baby and one of the most sincere smiles which helped him win his way into the hearts of wrestling fans worldwide. Given that he has been called the world’s most famous professional wrestler, there’s bound to be some rad Andre the Giant tattoos.
Andre enjoyed a long and prosperous career in the WWF where he rose to worldwide stardom. The capstone of his career came in 1987 when he wrestled Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania III to the largest indoor audience attracted by a sporting event in all of history. Many wrestling historians consider this to be the pinnacle of the ‘80s wrestling boom, with Andre playing a large part towards this end.
