When it comes to Cub Swanson, every picture tells a story, and his body is the canvas.

Swanson is one of the most identifiable fighters in the UFC with his multiple tattoos on his body. Ask him exactly how many he has, and Swanson won’t be able to tell you. His back is nearly covered with a large tattoo, and Swanson said it’s actually one that took four two-hour sessions to complete, and is full of details.

In total, Swanson estimates he has spent 40 to 50 hours getting tattoos. Cub Swanson, Mixed Martial Arts fighter Thursday June 13, 2013. Swanson will fight in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand July 6, 2013.
