The star of the cult trilogy of Robert Zemeckis "Back to the Future", Michael J. Fox, at the age of 57, made his first tattoo.

The idea came to Michael while sailing in St. John's, when he noticed a turtle in the water, with a missing part of the fin and a scar on his head. This turtle has become some personification of the transformation of his own life and career.

Remind that almost right away after the release of the last part of the trilogy, in 1990, doctors put Michael a terrible diagnosis - Parkinson's disease. The adoption of this disease was very difficult for him, problems with alcohol started. For a long time, Michael was looking for consolation at the bottom of the bottle, but in the end he was able to control himself and escape from this abyss. In order to help people experiencing similar situations, Michael wrote several books about his fate, became the curator of the Foundation research of Parkinson's disease.

The author of the first tattoo of the actor was one of the most famous masters of the Bang Bang Tattoo studio in New York - mr. K.
