Tattoo Artist With Super Bowl Connection

Posted: Updated:

Colin Kaepernick is making quite a splash on the NFL scene headed for the Super Bowl just two years out of the University of Nevada. And so are his tattoos. Most of them were done right here in Reno. Nes Andrion, who owns Endless Ink in Reno, says he's done all of them but one.

"I met him in 2007 and that's when it started. He only had one back then and I've done all the rest. That big one on his back with the angels and demons, it took 18 hours and we had to get it done in two days so that he could get back to San Francisco," Andrion says.

Not only that, business at Endless Ink has really picked up.

"I was working on Kaepernick back as he was going through UNR and that got me some business from other athletes. Now the phone sometimes doesn't stop ringing. I've been getting calls from the west coast like San Francisco, a few from the east coast and even a few from like Texas. And now that he's headed to the Super Bowl it's crazy."

"One of Kaepernick's favorite ones," says Andrion, "says, 'Let God lead the way.'  And I kind of feel like that he did. I did what I love, Kaep does what he loves and now everyone watching the Super Bowl will see my work. I feel like God did lead the way."

Will Kaep be back? Probably. Andrion says when you really love the art, you add to it. And he expects not only to see Kaepernick back in town but hopes he'll bring some new friends with him.

Channel 2 will be your home for Super Bowl XLVII on February 3rd. Complete coverage starts at 8am -- with kick off set for 3:30pm.

    Reno Dentist Serves Veterans for Free

    It's a common misconception that veterans get dental care covered along with the rest of their benefits. But while the VA does offer dental, most vets don't qualify. So a Reno dentist's office is taking on the mission to serve those who have served. Every year the Sala Family Dentistry office in northwest Reno opens its doors for a full day of free care for veterans.
