At the 2008 MTV Movie Awards,Johnny Depp revealed a new tattoo with the three words:“Silence,Exile,Cunning.”
Johnny Depp tattoo meaning:These words actually have a deeper meaning. It was taken from the James Joyce book,“A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.” The book’s main character Stephen says near the end of the book:
“I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe,whether it call itself my home,my fatherland,or my church:and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can,using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use –silence,exile,and cunning.”
