She got the tattoo back in 2014 and explaining about it, she said:

"My brother and I had agreed on a simple design: XLVIII, for the Super Bowl, on the inside of our right biceps. We were escorted into separate rooms. I asked my artist, Matthew, to print out a smaller template of the roman numerals for my tattoo. When he obliged, I asked him to go even smaller. Hands shaking, I stood up, walked outside and paced for a few minutes. Was I making a huge mistake? I managed to calm myself, then returned and let him work."

She further explained the moments after she got inked and said:

Days later, I was still thinking about that moment -- how I had panicked, as though suddenly aware that I was forever besmirching my body with a signifier for professional football. But that wasn't it. I was uneasy, I realized, because the tattoo seemed provisional -- a signifier of fidelity, but not faith. Compared to those willing to go out on a limb to profess their beliefs, I felt woefully inadequate. What if Jason Terry had it right all along?
