The tattoo on her stomach area is from her favorite weapon, a Glock 19. In an interview before UFC 238, Shevchenko explained the meaning. “I did a lot of sports. It’s one of my greatest passions. Now I feel like it has the same part of my life as martial arts, ”said ‘Bullet’.

“I really love taking photos with the Glock. It’s a very good weapon because it can fire anywhere. It is very easy to carry. It can survive in different weather conditions or whatever, and that’s why I have a tattoo on my body of a Glock 19, ”she added.

So this tattoo is her favorite weapon, it’s that simple. In another interview she said, “It’s universal, just like an MMA fighter. That’s why I got a tattoo on my lower abdomen a few years ago. Now I can always keep it close to me. “

The Kyrgyz fighter has another tattoo of a snow leopard that likely indicates her connection to Muay Thai, as suggested in her 2018 Twitter post.
