The tattoo on John Wick’s back is a token of his dedication to his wife and her memory. It is a double-barred cross, a symbol of two lives united in love and unbreakable loyalty. The two crossed bars also represent a wish, made with every stroke of the needle, for a love that is powerful even in his wife’s absence. The cross is inked in a shade of gold, which is a tribute to her beauty, her importance in his life, and her everlasting influence. The tattoo is a powerful reminder of John’s devotion and his efforts to live by the code she instilled in him.
