It’s no secret that San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle has become one of the best tight ends in the NFL. On top of that, he’s also one of the most intriguing personalities in the league as well, with his unique haircut, and animated celebrations on the field.
I mean c’mon, we’re talking about the guy who wore a “F*ck Dallas” shirt underneath his jersey when the Niners were playing the Cowboys, and he showed it off to the crowd after scoring a touchdown.

However, I was today years old when I learned that Kittle has a whole a** tat right on his butt cheek. And not only does he have an a** tat, he has a matching one with fellow Niners teammate CJ Beathard.
Kittle and Beathard not only are teammates in San Francisco, but they also played college ball at Iowa together back in the day, as Beathard was the starting quarterback for the Hawkeyes. Side note, CJ Beathard is the son of country music songwriter Casey Beathard, and the brother of country music singer Tucker Beathard, so he has country music roots in his blood as well.
But, back to the story.
The clip is straight from A Football Life, and Beathard made the a** tat confession:
“He has an a** tattoo, ‘830 Miller.'”
And Kittle went more in-depth:
“So we had a house, 830 Miller. It was a party house. I don’t know if you’ve seen ‘Blue Mountain State,’ it was basically the GOAT house. It was awesome, phenomenal, we had great times there.”
Beathard recalled when they decided to get the matching a** tattoos:
“Before we graduate we have to get a tattoo, we’re together, our address.”
And Kittle chimed back in:
“Our punter went, then I went, and CJ went, it was like $50 it was awesome.”
Then, they got drafted by the 49ers together, and that’s when Kittle said veterans began to notice the matching tats in the locker room:
“I think it was Brian Hoyer walks in and goes, ‘do you guys have the same a** tat?’ But that got out, and all the vets were like ‘why do you guys have matching a** tats?’ I was like, ‘ah, we lived together, I don’t know I’m a weird kid.'”
