After a crushing loss in the Super Bowl on Sunday, it looks like Colin Kaepernick has returned to the tattoo parlor for a little ink therapy. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback tweeted the above photos on Thursday, and the before-and-after looks show how the country's most famous body canvas is coming along.

Just pec-tacular, it would seem.

One interesting note: Kaepernick's work wasn't done by Nes Andrion, the Reno, Nev., artist who our own Dan Wetzel brilliantly profiled before the Super Bowl. Rather, this session was handled by Orly Locquiao of Humble Beginnings Tattoo in San Jose. Locquiao writes on his shop's Facebook page that the work lasted until 2:30 a.m. and that the tribal design represents Kaepernick's "family, inner strength, spiritual growth and humility."

Well, it certainly beats one that says "NFC champions." What do you think of the ink?
