Aaron Hernandez’s Former Tattoo Artists Are Being Investigated

The district attorney is looking to question some of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez tattoo artists to read some of that aink that was placed on his arm in between the dates between February 2012 and June 2013.

Hernandez is now being charged for a double murder in 2012 on top of the murder of Odin Lloyd in 2013.

According to ESPN,

The Suffolk district attorney’s office stressed that the tattoo artists are considered witnesses, not suspects, and “may have made observations of evidentiary value.”

“We’re intentionally limiting our statements so as not to influence any potential observations by tattoo artists,” said Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Dan Conley. “We want unvarnished and unrehearsed information.”

Authorities have not said if there is any connection between those two slayings and the 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player whose body was found in an industrial area near Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough. Lloyd was dating Hernandez’s fiancee’s sister.

He has been rumored to have had numerous gang ties in his life, and may be checking to see if any of the tattoos on his body are part of any specifici gang.
