It’s Rascal Flatts’ Joe Don Rooney’s Tattoo!
Compared to other country trios, Rascal Flatts are heavily underinked. The eagle tattoo on Joe Don Rooney’s left forearm is the only known ink in the group, although these fellas aren’t prone to removing shirts or wearing sleeveless tops to show off their arms. Perhaps Gary LeVox has a giant wolf on his back? We just don’t know.
It’s not easy to find a clear photo of Rooney’s eagle, either. It’s often covered by a sleeve or his guitar. In many pictures, he stands to the right of his bandmates with his left arm over a shoulder, protecting the ink work. We had to go back to 2008 to find a clean shot, with Rooney making a point after the group’s win at the ACM Awards.
