Patriots kicker now says he wants to have his tattoo removed.

Following the Patriots’ decision to select Marshall kicker Justin Rohrwasser in the fifth round of the NFL draft, his choice of tattoos immediately became a point of controversy.

Rohrwasser carries a Roman numeral three tattoo, which is the symbol for the Three Percenters.

Rohrwasser said after the draft that he got the tattoo when he was a teenager.

“Obviously, it has evolved into something that I do not want to represent,” he told reporters.

In a follow-up interview with WBZ’s Steve Burton that aired Monday night, Rohrwasser said he only recently discovered the tattoo’s full connotations.

“The first time I found out what [the tattoo] was linked to was on Saturday,” Rohrwasser explained. “And that’s why it was so surprising.”

He now says he wants to get that tattoo removed.
