Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez's love for tattoos may have accidentally revealed his guilt in a pair of murders from 2012 and 2013.

As Andy Rosen and John R. Ellement of the Boston Globe write, Hernandez allegedly entered a California tattoo shop in spring of 2013 and had three new tattoos done. Two of those tattoos were handguns and third was 'God Forgives' spelled backward so it could be read in a mirror.

Prosecutors say the tattoos of the handguns match the descriptions of the ones used to murder  Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in 2012 and then in 2013, a man believed to be a former friend of Hernandez that witnessed the murders.

Both of the guns portrayed in the tattoos match those used in the shootings, Suffolk First Assistant District Attorney Patrick M. Haggan said in Suffolk Superior Court Tuesday, arguing that the body art “is in fact an admission by Mr. Hernandez.”

However, Hernandez's legal team says that the tattoos are mere speculation that could "violate the defendant’s right to a fair trial."

Hernandez was sentenced to life without parole almost a year ago for killing Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player. He is set to serve out his sentence at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center near Boston.
