Aaron Rodgers getting his first tattoo was probably going to become fodder for jokes regardless of what he put in his skin, but he certainly gave the internet enough material to go above and beyond.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback unveiled the ink on Wednesday via Instagram, shouting out Hungarian tattoo artist Balazs Bercsenyi for the work. Here it is:
The caption from Rodgers:
First tattoo. From the 🐐 himself @balazsbercsenyi
Grateful for his mastery and friendship 💪🏼❤️ 🇭🇺
There’s a deep and meaningful story and connection to absolutely each element of this art piece, and I’ll share a little more about that one day. For now, just thankful for @balazsbercsenyi and his patience and artistry. #tattoo #astrology #theelements #
What does the tattoo mean? Apparently we will have to wait until Bercsenyi is ready to talk about it to find out.
The tattoo is certainly well done as a matter of execution, but it is also an extremely busy piece, featuring imagery from multiple spiritual sources, constellations, a mysterious eye and two lions. It is an odd tattoo, but it's hard to deny it's not a very Aaron Rodgers tattoo at this point.
And because it was Rodgers, a litany of Twitter accounts couldn't resist making jokes once a picture of the tattoo was posted. You can be the judge on which is the best one:
Tattoo artist: “What do you wanna do today?”
Aaron Rodgers: “Have you ever heard Kyrie Irving talk?”
Artist: “Say no more, fam.” https://t.co/YJ4GZUu1KR
