FRISCO, Texas — Ezekiel Elliott has not been shy about exhibiting off his midriff.
After scoring a landing towards the Los Angeles Rams within the season opener, Elliott lifted up his jersey to indicate off a “Feed Me” tattoo, full with a spoon.
“That is my model, Feed Me,” Elliott stated Wednesday.
He began making the gesture after large runs throughout his rookie yr, and it has been a staple for Elliott since.
He bought the tattoo in Dallas shortly earlier than coaching camp began. Whereas he had the concept for the tattoo, he let the Dallas artist deal with the design.
Oh, and the situation of this one harm greater than his different tattoos.
“It was tremendous painful,” Elliott stated. “I feel like the subsequent day we went and threw at [Dak Prescott‘s house], and it was all swollen and puffy. It was terrible. Not going to lie, it was painful. However pleased with the outcome.”
His mom, Daybreak, didn’t appear to be a fan of the brand new ink when requested on Twitter.

The working again thought in another way Wednesday.
“At this level, my mother is like over getting mad at me for getting tattoos,” Elliott stated. “Now she’s coming round to them.”
The workforce actually appears to succeed when Elliott is fed. The Cowboys are 22-4 when he rushes for greater than 100 yards in a recreation.
Large receiver Michael Gallup likes the tattoo and the message.
“Feed him. Do not see why he would not, but it surely ain’t too dangerous,” Gallup stated. “Zeke’s at all times arising with one thing humorous to get everyone going. For him to get that new tattoo, elevate it up when he scores, he is simply telling you plain and easy, simply feed him.”
Added defensive finish DeMarcus Lawrence: “I imply, I bought children, so I would not say I approve it, but it surely’s a dope tattoo. So long as he takes care of it, they maintain feeding him and he get the touchdowns, I ain’t bought no downside with the tattoo.”
