We wrote in 2013 about a new tattoo Kaepernick had inked onto himself, and on Monday, Kaepernick gave us even more visual aids to enjoy.
From his Instagram account.
Kaepernick's description reads as follows: "Money is the root of all evil! Amazing work by@carlostorresart #WhatWouldYouDoForSomePaper#WhatAreYouReallyAbout"
(I'll tell you one thing I wouldn't do for a bunch of money. Hold a snake that looks like that.)
Regardless, it sounds like the 49ers quarterback received some blowback for the ink, possibly because he recently signed a six-year, $126 million contract. Which, in some people's minds, might point right back to the first seven words of his statement.
Yall perspective is so narrow you don't realize what's really being said? I know what Tim 6:10 says but love is not the only factor!— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) July 7, 2014
According to the King James Bible online, Tim 6:10 says, "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."
Either way, that's a nice-looking tattoo and a tasty-looking piece of fruit.
