J.R. Martinez’s Inspirational Tattoo

J.R. Martinez definitely gets the award for the most meaningful tattoo that we’ve seen in quite some time. The Dancing With The Stars winner, All My Children star (he plays ‘Brot Monroe’), and plastic surgery miracle, is known for his overcoming the odds to survive and lead a great life after being nearly burned to death in a truck explosion during his time serving in the Iraq War. In memory of one of the few parts of his body to not be burned, and to remind him of the time his life changed forever, Martinez got the watch he was wearing at the time of the explosion tattooed on the spot on his wrist where it originally rested. Martinez is a walking inspiration, showing the triumph of the human spirit with every step he takes, and teaching us all that no matter what, life can go on. His tattoo provides a similar reminder to him, and to anyone else lucky enough to meet him.
