Christy Mack’s “War Machine” Tattoo RegretBy: Mike Tuttle - August 18, 2014
Porn star Christy Mack fell hard for an MMA fighter named War Machine. Now she is keeping as far from the guy as she can. According to Christy Mack’s tale, War Machine beat her half to death, stabbed her with a knife, and threatened to rape her.
No relationship between any man and woman should ever be construed to permit such violence. The relationship between War Machine and Christy Mack is no exception. But during all the post-beating analysis, there is a particular point that gets missed a lot.
War Machine tweeted on his own Twitter account that Christy Mack was his “property”. That point has been highlighted numerous times to demonstrate his callous attitude about women, or at least about this woman.
The challenge is, Christy Mack herself wears a tattoo that declares proudly in big, red stenciled letters that she is the “Property of War Machine”.
Perhaps Christy Mack regrets ever sitting for that inking.
Of course, War Machine himself, not to be outdone, wears her name inked up his neck.
Christy Mack caught the worse end of the deal, allegedly. She was hospitalized with a list of injuries that makes most people wince to read about: broken teeth, stab wounds, hair chopped off, face swollen and bloodied from beating.
When most women want to show their undying devotion to a man, they wear a ring. A few get his name tattooed somewhere on their body. Christy Mack must have been sold on this guy enough to get the ink done. The tattoo is visible on her right shoulder in this tweeted photo from her.
But she also said in her Twitter recounting of the beating: “He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly.”
There are all kinds of relationships. Most people would have difficulty with the notion of being in a relationship with a porn star that was serious and supposedly long-term enough to qualify for a pair of highly visible tattoos. But it takes all kinds.
The question now is: What will she do with the tattoo. Johnny Depp famously had a tattoo that read “Winona Forever”, from his days with actress Winona Ryder. Nowadays, it simply says “Wino Forever”.
Maybe Christy Mack could go for a simple alteration like that, though that would take some linguistic creativity. Perhaps a simple coverup would be a better choice.
