Eyecandy: N.Y. Giants Devin Thomas Explains The Meaning Of His Tattoos!
New York Giants wide receiver Devin Thomas recently showed off all his well-sculpted and inked up body parts for the Wall Street Journal while revealing the meaning behind his body art. He’s all ready to go hard at Super Bowl XLVI this weekend against the New England Patriots but aside from football, getting tattoos has been a good and alternative way for him to “vent”.
The tats include a spartan, a Wolverine (name of the college team in his hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan) , a prayer that use to be located on his mom’s wall (he had it inked after she passed away) and a scene from ancient Egypt. He also had a Broken Heart and HK (Heartbreak kid) inked behind his ear after his heart was broken by a girl during his second year in the NFL, a cartoon warrior name Goku on his back (to protect him) as well as the words ‘Love, Live Life’ (to represent his key to happiness: “Love and then you’ll be able to live life”).
his first tattoo inked when he was just 16:
His mother had two sons and had decided her third pregnancy would be her final one. But then that third baby, a girl already named Starlight, died in the womb. Because of that, Thomas’s mother had one more child: Devin. “My sister was sacrificed so I could be here. So to me, I always felt my life had to have a purpose,” he said.
