Every big fan of the Marvel movie franchise has already heard of this sad news. US actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for playing Black Panther in the hit Marvel superhero franchise, has died of cancer aged 43.
Boseman died at home in Los Angeles with his wife and family by his side, according to a statement posted on social media. Four years ago he was diagnosed with colon cancer, but he did not make the information public. The news surprised the fans and the movie world.
I will not elaborate on the details of his death and the fight against cancer. You can read about it on other pages. To honor the memory of this actor, I decided that today’s post will be devoted to black panter tattoo.
Below I present to you some of the most interesting character tattoos portrayed by the deceased actor.
The character of the Black Panther was designed with a specific animal in mind. This animal is used in this common tattoo depicting both a real animal and a superhero. The details of both faces make up this detailed and descriptive tattoo of both Black Panthers.
As with all animal tattoo, the symbolism of a black panter tattoo is strongly related to the animal’s characteristics. Panthers are agile, clever, intelligent and fearless animals. They stand at the top of the jungle food chain. A hungry panther is able to hunt a deer, a human, and even a lion. Aggressive nature of the panther also translates into mad love and care for the young. A mother is willing to sacrifice her life to protect her offspring.
The filmmakers wanted to show that people with different skin colors can be superheroes. This new respect and new understanding that heroes can look like anything.
