This is no ordinary ink as one might think; his tattoo is a powerful depiction of a Chinese dragon. Usually, people get a dragon inked to symbolize freedom, strength, and wisdom. But, Rodgers’ dragon is elegantly looping over itself to form the number “8”, which represents his current jersey number. Flanking this majestic creature are the words “two” and “twelve.” The number ‘2’ is a tender homage to his birthday on December 2.

The number “twelve” holds an additional layer of sentimentality, as it was the jersey number he donned at the Green Bay Packers. This wasn’t his first meaningful tattoo, as his previous tattoo had a deeper meaning.

Not very long ago, the world got to know about Rodgers’ first tattoo. In an interview with the NFL Network, the QB happily revealed the meaning when asked about it.

He said, “If you’re not a student of astrology, there’s going to be some weird things to look at in there.” Later, he added that his tattoo consists of “three signs at the top: Aquarius to the right, Sagittarius in the middle, and Scorpio on the far left.” The meaning behind the tattoo was that he got it for his godsons.

So, to represent them, he got that tattoo. Scorpion was for his own self as he resonates with that sign the most. What do you think of Rodgers’ tattoos?
