AJ McCarron adds to his glorious chest tattoo (Picture)


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” are to the left.

Call me crazy, but I actually think it looks better now.

Here’s what it looked like before:

Texas A&M fan gets ass tattoo of final score after win over Alabama (Picture)

Texas A&M shocked the college football world on Saturday when it came way with a road victory against No. 1-ranked Alabama that included a goal-line stand to seal the game. The photo you see above was posted on Reddit over the weekend, and according to an Outkick the Coverage reader the rump actually belongs to an Aggies fan.

If you’d like to see a more hairy and disturbing photo of the tattoo, click here. The victim of the lost bet is named Calvin N., and it turns out Calvin is the victim of a lost bet. At first we thought this had to be a Crimson Tide fan since Texas A&M won the game, but apparently Calvin is one of those pessimistic fans that likes to bet you his own team has no chance of winning just so he’s not disappointed. His roommates said they would pay him $100 if he turned out to be right and Bama won but that he would have to get an ass tattoo of the final score if Texas A&M won. The rest is history.

Pete Rose got a tattoo of the Reds mascot (Picture)

It would appear that Pete Rose came down with a case of playoff fever earlier this week. When his former team held a 2-0 series lead over the Giants and was on the brink of an NLCS berth, the 71-year-old Cincinnati legend decided it was time for some new ink. As you can see from the photo above that our friends at Busted Coverage shared with us, Rose got a classic tattoo of the Reds mascot.

B.C. spoke with the tattoo artist, Howard Teman, who said the tattoo had something to do with Rose’s upcoming reality show that will air on TLC called “Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project.” Teman also said it is the baseball legend’s first tat.

Unfortunately, San Francisco erased that 2-0 lead and came back to win three games straight and knock the Reds out. The good news is unlike this tattoo which was the result of a lost bet, Rose doesn’t have to feel ashamed of his ink. He’s a Cincinnati Red for life.

Michigan State LB Max Bullough has ‘Spartan Pride’ tattoo across his biceps (Picture)

If there is a family that embodies the Michigan State football tradition more than the Bulloughs, I’d like to know about them. Max Bullough is a junior linebacker for the Spartans and one of the team captains. He’s following in the footsteps of his father, Shane, who was a linebacker in the ’80s and also a team captain. But that’s not where the Bullough-Michigan State football legacy ends.

Bullough’s grandfather, Hank, was a guard for the Spartans from ’52-’54. Two of Max’s uncles played for Michigan State. Another uncle played college football for Notre Dame, as did Bullough’s other grandfather.

Max’s younger brother, Riley, is currently a freshman linebacker on the team.

“Green blood runs through our veins,” Bullough said in a clip featured on ABC during the Michigan State-Notre Dame game on Saturday.

Yes, it clearly does. I just wonder if all the family members have that sick “Spartan Pride” tattoo.

Mat Latos has a ‘Family Guy’ tattoo on his right leg (Picture)

“Family Guy” may be a cartoon, but a lof of grown men and women — well, mostly men — enjoy it. In fact, I wouldn’t recommend letting children watch is unless your 10-year-old is a fan of crude humor like I was at that age. That’s a story for another day.

It would appear that Reds pitcher Mat Latos is a “Family Guy” fan as evidenced by the tattoo he has on his lower right leg. Latos is not the first professional athlete we have seen proudly displaying their love for the show. Remember that awesome haircut Tracy Porter had a couple years back? Considering Latos’ Stewie and Brian tribute is permanent and Porter’s wasn’t, we’ll go out on a limb and assume the hurler is the bigger fan.

Jared Sullinger says he’ll never get a tattoo

One of the first things NBA rookies seem to do when they sign their first contract is hit the tattoo parlor. Finding an NBA player without ink is far more rare than finding one who has a tattoo, and it sounds like Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger is planning to remain among the minority. The 20-year-old former Ohio State star says he made a promise that he intends to keep.

“No tattoos,” he told CSNNE.com. “I promised my mother. You know if you break a promise, you’re not going to be living for the next days (laughs). I want to live as long as I can, so I’m not going to break that promise.”

In terms of body art, Sullinger will not be fitting in among his teammates. Jason Terry recently got this tattoo to symbolize how confident he is in the upcoming season and Kevin Garnett got some new ink during a trip to Canada this offseason, according to CSNNE.com.

The important thing here is that if the big man keeps his promise, he’ll never end up with a tattoo that looks as atrocious as this one. And that, my friends, is a very good thing.

Can anyone show us a worse Steelers logo tattoo than this one? (Picture)

How many times do people have to be told that giving 6-year-olds a tattoo gun is not a good idea? Wait until they’re at least 14 before giving them that type of responsibility. Unfortunately, a Steelers fan recently brushed off that advice and the end result was the photo you see above that the folks at Deadspin discovered on Reddit.
