A.J. McCarron’s chest tattoo has reached some sort of folklore status. When the Alabama quarterback’s ink job first appeared on the Internet last summer, the reactions were strong. Our own Steve DelVecchio called it “just embarrassing.” Others described it in far worse ways. We later came to find out that the tattoo actually had some strong personal meaning for McCarron. We had also heard that McCarron added to it, but there were no photographs to support such claims. Until now. Outkick the Coverage posted the above picture on Saturday of McCarron’s chest tattoo, which has undergone several additions. A cross now hangs at the bottom of the design, and plenty of ink was added to both sides. The phrase “Home team” appears on McCarron’s right pectoral, while the words “God in control” is to the left. Call me crazy, but I actually think it looks better now. Here’s what it looked like before: The tattoo has been updated since at least the summer, which is when a girl apparently snapped the photo. Twitter user @RMS3 says the photo wasn’t posted online until today. Aside from it looking like McCarron has a permanent piece of armor hanging around his chest, I think it has improved.
