Andy Ruiz had added to his inked frame but having a massive tattoo spanning across his back and bum.
The Mexican's new tattoo certainly raises eyebrows and is a big addition to the several tattoos he has across his body.
Also noticeable in the picture of his new ink is the amount of weight Ruiz has lost in the past few months.
Ruiz was a massive 20/1 underdog for his upset heavyweight title win against Anthony Joshua in 2019 and looking at his physique for the fight, it's easy to see why.
He weighed almost 20lbs heavier for the rematch six months later against Joshua and would lose the heavyweight titles to the Brit.
Ruiz then parted ways with trainer Manny Robles – who guided him to victory in the first fight with Joshua – and didn't fight again for 18 months.
He told TMZ Sports his poor preparation cost him the fight: "I think I ate everything… that’s why I gained so much weight. I was having too much fun, I was celebrating too much."
Ruiz partnered with Eddie Reynoso – the longtime trainer of pound-for-pound No.1 Canelo Alvarez – for his comeback fight earlier this year against Chris Arreola.
The Mexican survived an early knockdown against Arreola to win by unanimous decision.
Ruiz has targeted a return to the ring in December as he hopes to get another win under his belt in 2021, keen on taking fights against either Adam Kownacki, Charles Martin, or Luis Ortiz.

And talking before his win against Arreola in April, Ruiz said he's become much more disciplined since his loss to Joshua.
He said: "We started losing weight slowly but surely. People are wondering if I’m still going to have the same power after losing weight, but I’ve been working hard for this moment and the power is definitely staying with me.
“The main thing I’ve learned here is discipline. That’s something you can’t buy, you have to do it on your own. You have to want it.
“I’ve learned so much here. We try to perfect every punch and every movement. I’m not just a fighter who comes forward. I have more abilities. Losing weight is going to let me show more of what I can do.
“I come to the gym with a smile on my face now. I’m not where I want to be yet, but I’m a lot better than I was before. I just have to keep working and stay disciplined. I have to be in the gym, even when I don’t have a fight date. It’s got to be a lifestyle."
