Full Answer

Williams has several picture-based tattoos. One is a pagan Celtic cross on his right hip. Many people wear a Celtic cross for protection. He has another cross tattoo, which he calls "the Christian," on his right arm. It features Jesus Christ, angels and the Virgin Mary and is presumably religious.

Williams had a pair of swallows tattooed on his stomach in 2003. The birds are symbolic of freedom and loyalty. He also has a lion's head, the universal symbol for masculinity, power and virility, on his right bicep. The Eye of Horus, the all-seeing eye in Egyptian mythology, is tattooed on the back of Williams' neck. It's considered a sign of protection.

Williams has a traditional Maori tribal tattoo on his right shoulder that was done at famous Dutch tattoo artist Henk Schiffmacher's studio. It tells the story of his life. A more obvious story is the teddy bear on his left arm wearing a T-shirt with the letter "T" on the front. It's a tribute to Williams' daughter, Theodora Rose, whose nickname is Teddy.
