San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick spent a few more hours in a tattoo artist's chair Wednesday night. Turlock's favorite son had an intricate design added to his chest around the words "Against All Odds" that was previously inked there. Orly Locquiao of San Jose's Humble Beginnings Tattoo parlor posted pictures of his artwork on Instagram, describing the design as representing Kaepernick's "family, inner strength, spiritual growth, and humility." The new art was inked like a permanent football jersey below Kaepernick's neck and extends around his chest like shoulder pads. Click here to see it: http://instagram.com/p/Vb2laAP0UM/
