Meanings behind Korey’s tattoos: Explored

Korey has tattoos on every visible part of his body, but appears to have left his left thigh uninked.

He has ink up to his neck, which include ‘Faith’ written in large writing on his left rib, highlighting that he may be religious or spiritual.

One large tattoo on his back is a Egyptian stylized mask. In general, the symbol means to guide the spirit of the deceased back to its final resting place in the body.

The Love Island contestant also appears to have high ambition, as he has ‘The Sky is the Limit’ in large writing on his chest.

On his right thigh, Korey has a rose with thorns and a rope hanging off it, which usually symbolises promise, hope, and new beginnings, while the thorns often mean defense, loss, and thoughtlessness.

Despite all of these possible meanings, these are not definitive of Korey’s tattoos, as he could have his own personal reasons behind them.
