Carson Daly Tattoos
Carson has 10 tattoos which he say that they are all about his family, “I’m a family-first kind of guy, so everything on my body is really about my family,” he told Today in 2014.
Carson says the One-Eyed Jack tattoo shows a Jack playing card pierced by a jack playing piece is in honor of his son, Jack Daly. The design on his upper arm also includes his son’s birthdate — March 15, 2009, which was the Ides of March. To get in even more symbolic imagery in, he included the Pisces symbol (his son’s astrological sign), plus an American flag, a little Corvette logo for his dad, and an homage to Budweiser — “which is my beer of choice.”
Another tattoo, Leo The Lion, is designed on his lower arm, Carson went for a lion with a rose in its mane. The flower honors both his daughter London Rose and his paternal grandmother, who was also named Rose. The lion is a nod to London Rose’s birthday —August 20, 2014 — and her sign. Not only is it perfect for a Leo, but it also embodies a message Carson wants to pass on to his kids.
Carson’s older daughter also gets her own astrological-themed tattoo, Women Warrior . Etta Jones Daly was born on September 6, 2012, so he got a picture of a women warrior on his right forearm to represent Virgo.
“It looks like Wonder Woman kinda,” he said on Feherty. There’s also a small Statue of Liberty next to it.
Corvette Hood Ornament is his first tattoo, Carson wanted to pay homage to his late father, James Daly (J.D.), who passed away when he was 5. “He was a Corvette dealer and the tattoo is designed after a hood ornament of a 1977 Corvette that he left me,” Carson told Today. “I actually have the car that it’s designed for. I wanted a nice memento for my father without it being too somber.”
Curly Sark is another tattoo designed as a tribute to Carson’s late stepfather. he choose a modified whisky logo as a fitting tribute.
“My dad drank Cutty Sark,” he said in his Golf Channel interview. “I’m convinced he single handedly kept the company in business for 25 years.” To make it more personal, he changed “Cutty” to his step-dad’s nickname “Curly” and the slogan “Original Pops Whisky.”
“Every bartender thinks that’s the coolest tattoo they’ve ever seen,” Carson added.
Next to the Curly Sark logo, Carson has “Jaden Patricia” inked on his arm in cursive. This honors more family members. Jaden is his sister’s name and Patricia is his mother’s name, and Jaden Patricia is his niece’s name.
On his upper left arm, Carson has the Green Beret emblem in honor of his maternal grandfather. “He gave me, when he passed, his actual green beret that Kennedy gave him,” Carson said in his Golf Channel interview. The Latin motto for the United States Army Special Forces — De oppresso liber — is traditionally translated as “To Free the Oppressed.”
Carson has another tattoo, NYC. “This one I got the day after September 11, here in New York.” Carson told Today. “I went to work at MTV in Times Square and there was a bomb threat the next day, so we had to evacuate the building. As we were trying to figure out if we’d be on the air, I was kind of aimlessly walking around New York … I went to my tattoo shop and sat there listening to music and ended up having him put that on me as a sign of pride for being a New Yorker.”
On his calf, Carson has the logo of his former record label, 456. He got the name from a New York City street dice game. “We had a hip-hop label so it all made sense at the time,” he said on Faherty.
“The Crab Claw Pocket Knife was designed after Carson broke up with actress Jennifer Love Hewitt and started dating Tara Reid, who insisted that Carson should get his ex’s name covered up. In a rush, he turned things over to his tattoo artist “Braino” and requested a quick fix “I asked him, ‘Can you do something really fast on my ankle or my girl’s going to kill me,'”Carson said on Faherty. “I had no idea what he’s doing but I could feel him working … 30 minutes later he goes ‘We’re done.’ I look at it and I go, ‘What is that?’ He goes, ‘That’s a crab claw coming out of a pocket knife.’ I went, ‘Awesome. It’ll work.'”
