@celestialfirebird the tatoo first appears in Wolverine (1988) #160, not sure if theres any significance tho Thanks, pal. Looked up the issue, and the one before it. The one before it he actually has got it, too. Bishop: The Last X-Man (1999) #16 But get this, the issue before THAT is Gambit (1999) #11 where he’s in the hospital dyin’ and Constrictor and Gambit save his life. And he doesn’t have it in any issue…

Of course, this is contradicted later in 2013’s Deadpool #59– BUT, it IS a Deadpool…

“Naaah! I’m too good lookin’… some o’ these ol’ boys look like they been beat up all night with the ugly stick!” Wolverine (1988) #60
