Pats Rookie Justin Rohrwasser Says He’s Removing The ‘Three Percenters’ Tattoo On His Forearm

ESPN


Speaking to WBZ-TV in Boston on Monday, New England Patriots rookie kicker Justin Rohrwasser said that he will be removing the “Three Percenters” forearm on his tattoo because it does not represent who he is. Rohrwasser, now 23-years-old, said he got the Three Percenters — which is a right-wing militia group — tattoo when he was 18-years-old.

Rohrwasser, who says he was unaware of the tattoo’s meaning, says he wants to get it removed because it’s “shameful” that he had it on his body “ignorantly”.

“As soon as I saw what it was linked to on Saturday, it was exactly that time I knew I had to get it totally taken off my body. I said cover it up [to reporters], but I want to get it removed from my body. It’s shameful that I had it on there ignorantly,” Rohrwasser said.

“I’m sorry for all my [friends] and family that have to defend me. Putting them in that compromising position is one of the biggest regrets I’ll ever have. To them, I’m sorry,” he said. “I’m going to learn from this. I’m going to take ownership of it. This is not who I am. No matter what, that’s not who I am. Hopefully, you will all find that out.” [via ESPN]

Rohrwasser, who played college football at Marshall University, was selected by the Pats in the fifth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday. He was the #159 overall pick in the draft and was the first kicker to be taken in the 2020 NFL Draft.
