FONTANA, Calif. — Kasey Kahne will leave California with something he didn’t have when he got here — a tattoo.

A photo on Kahne’s Twitter account revealed the new ink job below the driver’s left bicep. The tattoo read “RDP/KSK,” the initials of Kahne’s two late grandfathers, Richard Peterson and Kenny Kahne.

“I’ve thought about it,” said Kahne, who got the tattoo from renowned artist Tim Hendricks. “For a while there I wasn’t really into tattoos, but then over the last… probably a year, I’ve thought about it, and that’s been really the only thing that I wanted, up to this point.”

The tattoo was Kahne’s first, and its purpose was to remind him of the good times he had with his grandfathers.

“I’m glad I did it,” he said. “I saw it this morning when I woke up, and I was like, ‘Man, I like that…’ For now, that’s really it. I just enjoy the part of good memories, lots of memories. I’ll see it all the time now and think more about some of those memories — I like what I did.”
