Colin Kaepernick

PEEP MY NEW TAT

'Money Is the Root Of All Evil'

7/7/2014 5:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Colin Kaepernick New TattooSF 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick -- who just signed a $126 MILLION contract -- just got a brand new tattoo that symbolizes how EVIL money can be.

Kaepernick just posted a photo of his new ink on Instagram ... which shows a pile of money attached at the root of a tree ... with an arm, constricted by a snake, reaching up while holding an apple. 

The image appears to be biblical in nature -- with the snake and apple representing the evil temptation in the Garden of Eden from the story of Adam and Eve. 

Colin included a caption with the photo that reads, "Money is the root of all evil! Amazing work by @carlostorresart #WhatWouldYouDoForSomePaper #WhatAreYouReallyAbout."

Of course, it's probably no coincidence that Colin got the tat after signing his mega-deal -- one of the richest contracts in the NFL. 

We're guessing it's one of those "reminder" tattoos to keep him grounded.

If he really feels that way then he shoulda signed for 126 k instead of 126 million.

That is one jacked up Tat. Its a jumbled mess that has way too much shading, making it hard to tell whats going on. Money is evil because every Celeb gets progressively more stupid, by acquiring more of it.

That was a very detailed tattoo. He should give Miley Cyrus the name of his tattoo artist, and pass it to Melanie Griffith too so she can get her tacky tat covered.

I like it. I'm sure it is to keep his head on strait. That is a lot of money for one person to have. He probably got the tat as a reminder to not let it go to his head and to do some good with it.

truth    

tattoo's are played out, it's no longer art when teenagers, grandmothers and stupid wanna be tough idiots are getting them. People who are getting them are nothing but followers. Get real and stop following.
FU to all you haters.
