Colin Kaepernick’s Tattoos Explained to Fellow Christian Kurt Warner

“Tell me about your tattoos a little bit, being a man of faith I know that they represent some things for you,” Warner asked.

“Most of them are religious. My first tattoos was a scroll on my right arm, Psalm 18:39,” the young quarterback explained.

Presumably the scroll tattoo is the one Kaepernick “kisses” after celebratory plays, which has come to be known as “Kaepernicking” (move over Tebowing!).

Psalm 18:39 reads: “For you equipped me with strength for the battle; you made those who rise against me sink under me.” (ESV)

The young former University of Nevada QB went on to explain, “All my tattoos have been something I’ve thought about for at least a year in advance to make sure it was something I really wanted, something that really meant something to me and that I could take moving forward.”

“It’s just my way of showing everybody that this is what I believe in,” he added.

That’s one focused kid!

Now, Kaepernick and the rest of the 49ers are headed to the Super Bowl after beating the Atlanta Falcons 28-48 in the NFC  Championship… where they’ll face either Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens or Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. If Lewis and the Ravens make it to the Super Bowl, needless to say, that will be one very high-stakes game (Lewis has been trumpeting Psalm 91 since announcing his retirement… we’ll have to see which Psalm wins (91 vs Psalm 18: 39… so glad they’re not using eye black).
