I know Jon has a Superman tattoo on one arm and there is a tattoo on his other arm, but I don't know what it is? Does anyone know what it is?

It's a long horn skull and of course the superman tattoo. Jon also has a tattoo on his ankle, which I think is a dragon. Dorothea has one on her ankle. It's one of those,her/him tattoos, where couples get.

A long horn skull? Does that go along with Jon's interest in Westerns? A Superman tattoo I can understand even a his/her dragon, but a long horn skull?

Hmm, I've looked at a lot of pics of Dorothea at formal/informal public events where she is wearing dress and have never seen a tattoo on her ankle. Supposedly Jon got his 3rd and last tattoo of a dragon because he was really "dragging" at the end of a tour.

The superman tattoo was not his first choice; he wanted a Hell's Angel symbol but was advised against it as it would piss off real Hell's Angels. I wish he would have kept up with the color of the superman tattoo but he has allowed it to fade off.

His got his second tattoo when he accompanied a friend to a tattoo parlor and his friend chickened out getting one. In a recent interview a few months ago it sounds like he kind of regretted getting tattoos as they were permanent and unchangeable.

No, she does have one. Just it's above her ankle and I have also heard what LisaS71 heard. It is supposely a his/her tattoo. Maybe they didn't get it at the same time but it's suppose to symbol where the man has one and then his wife, has the other. I have seen a few pictures of it over the years. There are some pictures of Jon, Dorothea and Stephanie having lunch and you can see it there but I can't find the links to that picture. I did find these two pictures and you can see it here.

Here is another link of pictures where you can see the tattoo. I can not make these pictures bigger but you can see it clearly in the first picture and the third picture. It's on her right leg.

Cool pics ! Thanks for sharing. I was wondering about Dorotheas tattoo. It is a nice size! I know I love mine. My husband has a really cool eagle on his right arm. I love when he wear certain t-shirts because the on claw and foot of his eagle peaks out. I looks like he is trying to escape out of the shirt! Wierd I know but I love it!

It's nice to know the background stories about Jon's Tattoos. I never knew that instead of Superman, he wanted a Hell's Angel. Whoever advised him on not getting that tattoo, was very intelligent. The other one on his arm, he got that on his wedding day. Reading back on Jon's history, he spoke about wanting something to celebrate because he was very happy that they had a number 1 single in I'll Be There For You. So he got a tattoo and then he got married that night. What a way to celebrate having a number 1 single.

Does anyone know what year Jon got the Dragon tattoo? I know that I have seen pictures as far back as 1997 but can not find the year where he got it. His wife does have a tattoo on her leg too. Thank you to Rosa for posting those pictures. The story is that Jon has the male symbol and Dorothea has the female one. It's a Japanese tradition where a husband and wife have these tattoos done and it symbolizes their marriage.

Actually, Jon didn't want to get a Hell's Angel tattoo, he wanted to get 'Bon Jovi''New Jersey' in the same style like the bikers have their name and location on their jackets.(Bon Jovi in a half circle on the top and New Jersey in a half cirle on the bottom) The artist advised him that some gang members wouldn't take to kindly to this type of tattoo and if they saw it they'd likely rip his arm off and beat him with the wet end.(this is the story Jon told)

Thanks for sharing the photos. I thought I'd never forget the second tattoo, but I see them so rarely now...boo hoo! Was wondering what it meant. THanks for all the posts about it.

Thanks for the pics of Dorothea's tattoos. It is kind of behind her ankle and the photos that I was accessing were just front photos of her.

That is fine. I have to admit that it took long for me to find those pictures of her tattoo. I know that she has a tattoo because I had seen it over the years but then when I was trying to find the pictures, I couldn't find any that showed. Also for me, when I heard the story behind the tattoo it was a AWWWWWW moment and so I knew that she had one too match Jon's.

For some reason, I'm thinking the dragons were done in the early 90's, but don't remember for sure.

I think so too. I have seen pics of the both of them with the dragon tattoos in the nineties. Jon definitely in 1997, he had it. So around that time.

Thanks for the links Rosa.
