Well, the Crab was tattooed on his leg on top of the name of an ex-girlfriend. In an interview with Today, he explained that he wanted the name blacked out and allowed the artist to make whatever he wished to. Carson ended up with a crab claw, coming out of the pocket knife.

He further talks about wanting them to be strong women, so he opted for the symbol of strength. Furthermore, the flower honors his daughter London Rose who is named after Carson’s grandmother, Rose.
Similarly, Carson also has a tattoo to honor his older daughter, Etta Jones Daly. She’s a Virgo, so he inked a picture of a woman warrior. He says, “It kinda looks like Wonder Woman, also, here’s a Statue of Liberty next to it.” Carson is such a sweet father.
