As we speak of inks, five-time Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton is never the one to be left behind. Known for his stunning drives and breathtaking maneuvers, Hamilton has gathered several accolades as well as critics for his off-the-track antics.
Be it as it may, he is living his life to the fullest, making sure his fans stay motivated and get positive vibes from their hero. And as far as getting new inks go, he has added four new designs to his already voguish magazine and his fans are absolutely loving it.
First in the list is a Swordsman design. Getting into the detail would be a vague thing to do really because a Sword carries several meanings. To start with, a sword can be inked to represent strength, bravery, courage, power and of course, Protection. In Hamilton’s case, it is likely to demonstrate the latter, as his story suggests such.
Then there is this hourglass, which is designed to remind, “Time is all we have.” Born on January 7, 1985, having a design of his sun sign – Capricorn – is a no-brainer really. And as we speak of Capricorns, Hamilton represent every trait of it. He may divide several opinions, but he is hardworking and fully in control of his destiny.
He himself has made his way to the top of his game, hence justifying the attribute, “a Capricorn always get what they set their mind to, in both personal and professional life—no excuses.” Lewis Hamilton is a believer. He believes in the power of God and in order to make it judicious, he has inked “Divine Love” on the side of his hand. The term divine can be perceived in different manner, but the basic remains that it is something angelic.
Well, to say Hamilton – who turned 34 last month – lives an extravagant life would be a clear understatement.
Need proof? Well, just surf through his Instagram feed and the recent uploads are sure to give you some major #Wanderlust vibes. Of late, he has kept himself occupied in surfing through the west coast of America. And if you think that’s enough, let us remind you that he has also acquired his sky diving license.
