Patriots kicker Justin Rohrwasser got some notoriety after the draft when it was revealed that he had a tattoo of the logo of the Three Percenters, a far-right militia group. Rohrwasser has had that tattoo removed.

Rohrwasser began the removal process immediately after the draft and the tattoo is now gone, TMZ.com reports.

When asked about the tattoo, Rohrwasser pleaded ignorance.

“I got that tattoo when I was a teenager and I have a lot of family in the military,” Rohrwasser said, via a transcript provided by the team. “I thought it stood for a military support symbol at the time. Obviously, it’s evolved into something that I do not want to represent. When I look back on it, I should have done way more research before I put any mark or symbol like that on my body, and it’s not something I ever want to represent. It will be covered.”

The Patriots chose Rohrwasser out of Marshall in the fifth round of the draft.

  1. ….good.

    now lets hope the mentality that preceded you putting that thing on your body is gone as well.

  2. Young kids make mistakes and don’t deserve to be judged for a singular misstep. He wasn’t hiding it or anything, and when it was brought to his attention that it didn’t mean what he thought he took full responsibility and got rid of it. That’s what being an adult is and hopefully he avoids anything like this again and has a positive fruitful career.

  3. What nationality is this guy? He admitted he was wrong about something, so he’s clearly no American.

  4. Mature move. Hint to young people: Don’t get an ugly tattoo or if you do, take careful consideration.

  5. Since the Three Percenter movement began in reaction to Obama’s election, it sounds like a good career move to remove the tattoo

  6. Does anyone here have a friend who was a teenager and got a fascist tattoo? Yeah, didn’t think so.

  7. I was a teenager once. I made thousands of bad choices. Getting a racist tattoo wasn’t one of them.

  8. He’s a liar. He knew exactly what it was. You’re not going to put a tattoo permanently on your body without knowing what it is.

  9. In a time where we could pull out our cell phones and do a Google search. This kid knew exactly what he was putting on his body. I guess he never thought he would make it this far. Good choice to remove the ink.

  10. Before we decide whether this is acceptable I need to know who he is planning to vote for.

  11. Tattoo removal is extremely painful. I got my whole chest piece removed and it hurt ten times as much as getting it done. Plus ten times as expensive and long.

  12. “Since the Three Percenter movement began in reaction to Obama’s election, it sounds like a good career move to remove the tattoo”

    False. Three percenters were around long before Obama. They just became an official group in 2008. Their ideology has been around for years without having a label.

    “Does anyone here have a friend who was a teenager and got a fascist tattoo? Yeah, didn’t think so.”

    False. It is not a fascist tattoo. The group is actually more anti-government and is largely made up of former military people.

    “Getting a racist tattoo wasn’t one of them.”

    False. The organization is not racist as there are black and other minority people that are members. Members are largely former military. If anything they are very anti governement.

    I’ve dealt with 3% as well as other groups of interest as a part of my employment. Go research what the group is and don’t let the media tell you who they are. The media couldn’t give accurate information about gangs, security threat groups, and other groups of interest if they tried. There is bad in those groups. Do the research and see for yourself.

  13. The guy got a tat where he thought it was one thing but, it meant another.

    He found out what it really meant and solved the problem.

    I bet there’s more than one hypocritic that posted, regardless of subject matter.
