Northern Illinois linebacker Victor Jacques may have a tattoo that’s a first of its kind. The redshirt senior middle linebacker recently got a tattoo that’s a tribute to Miami, and it features the Orange Bowl logo. Jacques told reporters this week that Northern Illinois reaching the Orange Bowl inspired him to get a tattoo he had been contemplating for three years. According to CSN Chicago, the tattoo features the Miami skyline, the Biscayne Bay and the Miami-Dade county logo. It also shows a marlin jumping out of the water, and the Orange Bowl logo as the sun shining over the scene. Jacques got the work done in four hours at Spider Tattooz in Sycamore, Illinois. “It wasn’t hard to find someone to get the logo right, but I had to get the money right. It’s not cheap.” Jacques joked. “I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do — it definitely had to do with Miami — but it all came together. The Orange Bowl just topped it off. It was the icing on the cake.” Northern Illinois plays Florida State on Jan. 1. The 12-1 Huskies were a BCS at-large selection and are looking to prove a lot of detractors that they belong in the game. As far as the tattoo goes, it looks pretty nice, though I would say Nate Robinson has a better city tribute tattoo. Photo via HuskieWire H/T Pete Thamel
