Joe Rogan may be known for hosting the who's who of interviewees on his podcast, but over the years he's become a public figure in his own right. Whether you know him for his color commentary in the UFC, hosting Fear Factor or headlining comedy specials on Netflix, Joe Rogan is undoubtedly a household name.


And when it comes to being a household name, there are a few things that come with the territory of fame and fortune. One of those things is having your likeness replicated in a portrait tattoo. While most celebrities today have become accustomed to seeing their face in a tattoo, it's great to see a star humbled by the experience.


A few days ago, Rogan showed his appreciation for a portrait tattoo of himself by reacting in astonishment to the craftsmanship of the artwork, calling the artist a "wizard!" The tattoo was inked by the one and only Steve Butcher, an elite realism artist based in New Zealand. Butcher is known for creating incredible celebrity portraits and has a soft spot for inking sports figures in the NBA. Looks like he's branching out to MMA these days.

However, this isn't the first time Rogan has given a tattoo a shout out on his Instagram. It appears that this experience never gets old for the podcaster and we can't blame him! Can you imagine having your face permanently tattooed on a stranger's body?
