Aaron Rodgers’ first tattoo has Twitter cracking jokes

A new lucky charm! Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took to social media on Wednesday to reveal brand new ink he recently received as he prepares for his 18th season with the team.

Let’s just say Rodgers could use a good omen after his final season as he endured a turbulent time on and off the field. At first, the quarterback star was speculated after missed events, only to reveal he had contracted COVID-19. That was just the beginning of the drama, as the athlete admitted to not being vaccinated and explained he was “immunized” in August 2021, per CNN. And for Rodgers, the COVID controversies didn’t stop there. In November, the star came under fire again for his comments about “COVID Toe.” At first, Rodgers said he had a COVID toe following his battle with the virus, but then retracted that statement, saying he didn’t have a COVID toe and showed his bare foot in a Green Bay Packers press conference to prove it NBC Sports.

Obviously, Rodgers has been embroiled in several controversies over the past season. And after ending a season in which more people talked about his antics than his plays on the field, he seems ready to start over – and has decided to do so with a new tattoo. But little did the quarterback star know that his new tattoo is drawing the same amount of negative excitement that last season brought him.

Followers just don’t like Aaron Rodgers’ new tattoo

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Aaron Rodgers showed off his new tattoo, which is on the inside of his forearm. The tattoo — which features multiple zodiac signs, two lions facing each other, an evil eye, and constellations — has a sentimental meaning that Rodgers would reveal to fans at a later date. “There is a deep and meaningful story and connection to absolutely every element of this artwork, and I’m going to share a little bit more about that one day,” the quarterback wrote, showcasing the artwork.

However, despite the hidden, meaningful message the tattoo carries for Rodgers, it didn’t take long for fans to pour their ambiguity into the tattoo. One fan wrote on Twitter that Rodger’s new tattoo is the “Illuminati confirmed.” Another added that Rodgers’ new ink is the “worst tattoo”. [they’ve] ever seen.” And the fans didn’t stop there. Other fans tweeted that they could “smell the essential oils” coming out of the tattoo and that Rodgers “picks up mushrooms one time” and that’s what happens afterwards.

While some fans obviously felt dislike for the new ink, many came to Rodgers’ defense, saying the tattoo was “sick” and “fire” and there were just too many haters speaking out. But the hate didn’t seem to affect Rodgers – hopefully things can only go up from here!
