Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has yet again added ink to his awe-inspiring tattoos and this time it’s a work of No Pains by Ganga. The NFL professional has an extensive display of tattoos all over his body and today we take a look at his exquisite tattoos.
Originally drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2018 NFL draft, Lamar Jackson started his professional career with the franchise as QB. Although many suggested he play wide receiver at the beginning of his career, Jackson excelled at his own position putting an end to the rumors.
Over time Lamar Jackson evolved into one of the best players on the team and even won the NFL MVP in 2019. Aside from his stellar performances on the field, fans are also piqued by Jackson’s extensive and breathtaking tattoos. Here’s all about the ink the 26-year-old has got to date.
Lamar’s latest tattoo is a composite piece that shows off the word ‘Family’, his name, Lamar, and that of his mother, Felicia. Below their names, the word ‘Truzz’ is tattooed just above a circle that is held by two hands.
Inside the circle is inscribed the bible verse from Psalm 133:1, which reads: “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”
Underneath the circle is the trunk and roots of a tree, with three angels drawn around it. The left side of the design displays the serenity prayer, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
