Quote CM Punk reveals the origin of his Pepsi tattoo in a new article on ECW.com that talks about Punk working for FUSE TV this past week covering the Vans Warped Tour.

Bad Religion guitarist Brian Baker has a tattoo of the Coca Cola symbol on his arm, and when Punk was in high school he read an interview with Baker in a music magazine where the musician said he got the Coke tattoo because he enjoyed Coca Cola. Punk says since he liked Pepsi and was very impressionable at the time, he went out and got the Pepsi tattoo on his arm.

Haha, I love that story. Some of you probably have heard it before from his earlier career in the independents, but i've never heard that story before. Nothing wrong with having a tattoo of something you love on you. However it's usually not something that you can drink lol. More likely something to do with a person or team you admire. Having seen his old school snaps, I can believe he was impressionable. However he must like the tattoo to still have it now.

Yup, I've heard this story. I've also read an interview where he said he got asked all the time why he had the Pepsi logo tattooed to himself and that each time he'd try to give a different answer but soon got sick of it and now just comes out with "because I like Pepsi". As far as tattoos go... it could've been worse... lol.

It's funny. I think of CM Punk with that symbol more than I do Pepsi. Same with COBRA.

Interesting. I knew he was straight edge but never exactly knew the inspiration for his tattoo.

As I drink mondo Pepsi, that is one of the reasons I like Punk.


Thanks to Pac for the sig.
