(USA TODAY)-- When Joba Chamberlain saw the scar left from his Tommy John surgery in 2011, he apparently saw an opportunity for an amazing tattoo. The Detroit Free Press first noticed the Tigers' reliever arm this week, though SB Nation traced it back to last year.

The Detroit Press Press photographer caught Joba Chamberlain in his Detroit Tigers debut against the Braves in spring training, and noticed exactly how he used a tattoo to cover up his Tommy John scar.
