A big addition to that offseason — and Jackson’s chest — was revealed on Instagram Saturday when a Florida tattoo artist posted a picture of his latest work, a massive tattoo covering Jackson’s upper chest and shoulders.
The biggest features of the new tattoo: a football, the word “Family” and feathers that may or may not be Ravens-colored. Also written under the tattoo are “Lamar,” “Felicia [Jackson’s mother],” “Truzz [Jackson’s catchphrase],” as well as a dove on Jackson’s shoulder.

The Instagram post’s caption indicates there is somehow more to add once business can resume following the coronavirus pandemic, and there might be a documentary in the works showing the creation of the tattoo.
That ink is certainly a bold choice, and a development that should be encouraging for Ravens executives when thinking about negotiations for Jackson’s next contract once his rookie deal is up in a few years.
Jackson has made it clear in the past how much he loves being a Raven and the Ravens are certainly happy with their choice to draft Jackson. If the two parties want to stay together, there is little reason to think they won’t.
However, this is also the NFL. Players who look like lifers for an organization end up elsewhere all the time. Jackson seems to be doing his best to show that won’t be the case, but you really never know.
