Jason Momoa Debuts New Head Tattoo After Shaving Off Hair For Cause
Jason Momoa has an all-new bold look.
After shaving off his head for a cause, he had that part inked, which Entertainment Tonight said to be a “tribal tattoo.”
The 43-year-old celebrity debuted the look on Wednesday via Instagram. He posted a short clip on his official account, featuring his new ink as he boards an airplane.
In the clip, Momoa yells, “Chief of War comin’, baby,” as he removes his hat, unveiling the new ink. It also serves as his last words from the video before he left for the plane.
Elsewhere in the post, the “Aquaman” actor declares that he is “proud to be Hawaiian,” noting that he is flying to New Zealand via Hawaiian Airlines.
ET said Jason Momoa may be flying to New Zealand for his new and upcoming Apple TV+ series, “Chief of War.”
Earlier in April, Variety reported that the “Game of Thrones” alum is set to executive produce, write, and star in the series for Apple.
As noted, it follows the story of the “unification and colonization of Hawaii from an indigenous point of view,” adding that it has already received the platform’s green light for an eight-episode run.
With Momoa, who is of Hawaiian descent, writing the series, alongside Thomas Pa’a Sibbett, it will reportedly mark the first time he has written for television.
“Chief of War” is also the second Apple series led by the DCEU actor as he currently stars in “See.” The show is now on its third season run on the platform.
Meanwhile, Jason Momoa made headlines earlier this month after shaving off his head. He said he did it in protest against single-use plastic.
On Instagram, the “Dune” star posted a video, showing the shaving process. As the clippers work on his head, he talks about the cause, noting that he is “tired of using plastic bottles,... plastic forks, [and] all that s*** [as] they go “into our land,” “into our ocean.”
People, in its piece covering the matter, quoted part of Momoa’s sentiments, stating, “I’m here in Hawaii right now, and just seeing things in our ocean, it’s just so sad.”
It continues, “Please, anything you can do to eliminate single-use plastics in your lives. Help me, plastic bottles are ridiculous… we’re going to keep going - oh, man. Love you guys. Aloha.”
Jason Momoa’s post has since obtained nearly one million likes. It has also amassed more than 21,800 comments, with many netizens seemingly applauding him for the cause.
