Larry Johnson's Maryland flag tattoo
When I saw this photo of Larry Johnson by The Post's Jonathan Newton, I of course wondered about that pseudo NFL shield.
Turns out it refers to both his father and grandfather, with the initials standing for "A Son Never Forgets," which Johnson said he borrowed from "Men of Honor."
Johnson has a whole bunch of unique tattoos, including the lyrics from Billie Holiday's "God Bless the Child" on his right arm. Not too terribly many NFL players with Billie holiday lyrics on their body, I wouldn't think. Johnson said he's a big fan of several eras of jazz, mentioning Coltrane and Miles in addition to Billie.
Of course, his musical tastes also run to the more modern, and so on his left arm are some lyrics from Tupac's "Fame."
But when I asked Johnson about any other tattoos worth mentioning, he turned that left arm to the inside and showed me and Matt Terl one of his newest additions, which he got right before he signed with the Redskins. Yup, that's the Maryland state flag.
