nightmare QB Mark Sanchez better clean up his act if he wants his jersey to stay on Rex Ryan's arm -- so says the head coach, who claimed he'll ink a NEW number onto his infamous tattoo ... if Mark doesn't start playing better.

Rex was questioned about the tat during a news conference today -- and Rex joked, "Obviously, if Sanchez doesn’t play better, that number’s changing. That’s a given."

As we reported, Rex unveiled the bizarre tattoo while on vacation in the Bahamas last week -- a tat of what appears to be his naked wife wearing ONLY a Mark Sanchez jersey.

During the news conference, Rex insisted the tat's just a coincidence -- claiming he got the ink job long before Sanchez came to the Jets.

Rex said, "It’s funny. It’s actually a tattoo I’ve had for like three years ... I’ve been married for 25 years, and through my eyes, my wife’s the most beautiful woman in the world. So that’s what it is."

For reference: here's a list of every other player to wear #6 for the Jets ... Bill Demory, Bubby Brister, Joe Prokop, Ray Lucas, Doug Brien, Kellen Clemens, and Reggie Hodges.

So Sanchez making millions won't motivate him...pride doesn't seem to do the trick...being the butt of jokes doesn't faze him but good god, Rex will alter his tattoo...YEP that'll light a fire uunder Mark's rear. Really? The Jets are quickly becoming the joke of the NFL.

He should change it anyway... what a horrible tattoo. As much as he makes, you'd think he could get quality ink.
