Colin Kaepernick just started his offseason, and he is not wasting any time adding to his tattoos. Kaepernick tweeted the photo you see above on Thursday. The San Francisco QB added a tribal design around his pectorals and trapezius. The photo below via tattoo artist Orly Locquiao shows what designs were added: According to a post by Locquiao on Humble Beginnings Tattoo, Kaepernick was tattooed until 2:30 in the morning. Locquiao says the tattoo represents Kaepernick’s “family, inner strength, spiritual growth, and humility.” Kaepernick’s tattoos became a source of controversy last season after a Sporting News columnist questioned the quarterback’s ink. Kaepernick’s parents were upset with the writer, and Kaepernick says he started the “Kaepernicking” trend in response because he is proud of his tattoos. Locquiao also owns Cukui boutique in San Francisco. The clothing store sells designs inspired by Pacific Islander and Chicano cultures. They worked a deal with Kaepernick to sell shirts and sweatshirts inspired by the quarterback’s tattoos. Needless to say, business has been booming ever since.
