Many athletes have tattoos, however when a controversial, 38-year-old, four-time NFL MVP will get his first tattoo and claims the intricate picture has every kind of meanings, it will get consideration.
That’s the case for former Cal quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who displayed his first tattoo on Instagram this week.
The tattoo was drawn by Hungarian artist Balazs Bercsenyi and Rodgers added this info together with the tattoo:
First tattoo. From the 🐐 himself @balazsbercsenyi
Grateful for his mastery and friendship 💪🏼❤️ 🇭
There’s a deep and significant story and connection to utterly every aspect of this artwork piece, and I’ll share a bit extra about that someday. For now, simply grateful for @balazsbercsenyi and his endurance and artistry. #tattoo #astrology #theelements #
Hmmm. The plot thickens.
So presumably it’s everybody’s job to strive to determine the meanings, and, in fact, lots of people did simply that – generally critically, extra typically humorously.
The New York Submit reported on perhaps the most newsworthy interpretation, claiming it pertains to his rumored girlfriend, Blu of Earth.
Blu, whose actual names is Charlotte Brereton and is a well-liked podcaster, motivational speaker and entrepreneur, shared a tattoo on Instagram in 2019 that was drawn by the identical artist (Bercsenyi) and had related photographs.
“An initiation. A return to fact. A stand for unconditional love. A proper of passage. A reclaiming of my very own physique,” Blu wrote on the time. “Thanks to my soul brother @balazsbercsenyi for adorning my vessel along with your gentle.”
Final month, the Post reported via SideAction that Rodgers has been linked to Blu.
Whether or not any of the Submit report is true is unsure, and it doesn’t finish the seek for the that means of Rodgers’ tattoo.
The 2 lions – one docile, the opposite roaring – are the primary issues that appeal to consideration, and NFL of us will be aware that the Packers face the Detroit Lions twice every season. Extrapolate that a bit additional and you could possibly interpret this as an allusion to Lions quarterback Jared Goff, who, like Rodgers, is a Cal alumnus.
OK, that interpretation is a bit far-fetched and self-serving, however most web sleuths are arising with wild decoding solutions.
CBS Sports suggests (facetiously) that the attention pertains to his new contract extension, which makes him the best paid NFL participant in historical past by way of annual earnings.

My guess right here is that Rodgers included the all-seeing eye within the tattoo design to let the Packers know he needs his total $150 million contract paid out in a single greenback payments. It is the one factor that is sensible. The one greenback invoice has an all-seeing eye on the again.
SportsBlog Nation notes the constellations atop the tattoo could have that means for Rodgers, whose birthday is December 2, making him a Sagittarius:
Rodgers has the intersection of Scorpio and Aquarius on the heart of the design, which represents the Winter Solstice, bisected by Sagittarius, which is his star signal. At this level I’m 1,000 p.c satisfied Rodgers read this 2020 article from the Sonoma Gazette on the significance of the Winter Solstice to every signal and held on each sentence of this like his life trusted it.
“Sagittarius: As your ruling planet, Jupiter, transits into Aquarius, you could possibly calm down right into a framework that’s extra snug that’s extra accepting of individuality and freedom. This suits proper in with your personal drive to independence, of motion and thought than the previous 12 months has allowed.”
Someplace in that tattoo should be a reference to his guess with Charles Barkley by which Rodgers will minimize off his man-bun if he finishes behind Barkley on this weekend’s celeb golf event in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
OK, possibly not.
Plenty of tweeters have their very own interpretation of Rodgers’ tattoo.
Listed below are only a few:
To be sincere I used to be anticipating extra creativity from the twitter universe.
In the meantime, we anxiously await Rodgers’ clarification of the tattoo’s that means.
