If you are a big Sci Fi fan like I am then you are going to love the new Netflix TV series called Altered Carbon. Of course, the plot is set in the future where human consciousness is digitally stored and gives people the power of immortality. A rich guy restores an ex elite military man’s (Takeshi Kovacs) consciousness into a new body to solve his own murder mystery. You must be asking if someone is murdered how can he hire someone to solve his own murder case? You gotta watch this TV series to find out the answers.
If you have already watched Altered Carbon then you must remember the tattoo that Takeshi Kovacs had on his inner forearm matching with his sister Reileen. I was really fascinated by Kovacs’s tattoo design of a dragon eating its own tail.
Takeshi Kovacs’s Tattoo Design from Altered Carbon
Meaning of Takeshi Kovacs’s Tattoo
The tattoo design of Takeshi Kovacs is actually called Ouroboros. The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol represents a serpent or a dragon eating its own tail creating an infinite symbol that symbolizes the eternal cycle of things. A perfect analogy for life being recreated out of death or rebirth through death.
Which actually makes perfect sense based on the context of the story-line of the TV series (Altered Carbon).
