Kenny Vaccaro

A lot of guys get tattoos just to have ink on them, but I can explain everything on my body. I wait until I get a truly great idea and have had a plan for everything I wanted to get.

The majority of my tattoos are Christian and family-based. My first one I got when I was 17 years old [on my upper right arm] for my father who passed away two years before. It is a cross with the words `I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.’


Kenny Vaccaro Wrist Tattoos

Tattoo: Kenny’s right and the left wrist is inked with the words, “WALK BY FAITH”, “NOT BY SIGHT”, respectively.

Meaning: The words have been taken from the Bible Verse – 2 Corinthians 5:7 which reads from the Greek text, “for by means of faith we walk, and not by means of sight.” Hereby The WALK represents the way and manner of our life, as to how we conduct ourselves. This ink basically represents his strong belief in Christianity and its beliefs. Kenny believes in taking everyday timely decisions of his life by keeping strong faith in God with respect to the outcome of his decisions. We should have faith in God for everything.

Kenny Vaccaro Cross Tattoo

Tattoo: Kenny has a huge cross inked on his right bicep. The cross has the words K.D.V.Sr. (Kenny Dwayne Vaccaro. Senior) inked under it. Followed by the writing, “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.”.

Meaning: Kenny was very young when his father died. He was very close to his father and on his demise that too when Kenny was just 15 years old led him to get his father’s initials inked along with the cross and this quote.

“This was my first tattoo. My dad passed away when I was 15. The inscription says, ‘I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.’ I mean, anytime I’m going through something, any type of adversity, it’s a reminder that my dad is watching me. Anytime I’m going through anything, I talk to him spiritually. Especially during the football season, week in and week out, it reminds me of what I’m playing for. Before he passed, he told me to always take care of the family. That was when I was like 15. We come from nothing. We were dead broke. But he always told me I would be the key to getting us out of poverty. Anytime I want to quit, anytime I want to not work as hard as I need to, I always think about what my dad told me. It’s kept me going all these years. I support my whole family. Putting both of my sisters through college, taking care of my brother, taking care of my mom. Basically, the whole family rides on my back.”
