NFL player Chad Ochocinco continues to become a target for the media after revealing a new leg tattoo of estranged wife Evelyn Lozada.
Ochocinco revealed the body ink this week, nearly a month since his domestic violence arrest in Miami.
Dumped Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson can't seem to let go of his estranged wife -- and proved it by tattooing her face on his right leg. Johnson, formerly known as Chad Ochocinco, showed off his latest ink featuring Evelyn Lozada and the name "Eve" scrawled below it. Lozada, 36, filed for divorce last month -- three days after she told police that Johnson allegedly became violent when she confronted him about a receipt for condoms. (New York Daily News)
Despite the gesture, sources claim Lozada is unfazed by his new tattoo.
Johnson posted the photo on his Twitter page today ... the image is his new profile pic featured at the top of his page. It's unclear if the tat is real ... or of the temporary variety. Sources tell us Chad got the work done this past weekend. Either way, Chad may not be getting his money's worth from the ink -- sources close to Evelyn say she still feels strongly about divorcing Johnson ... and she's made it clear to friends she will NOT be getting back together with the former NFL star.

Last week, the fallen NFL star briefly addressed the aftermath of striking his wife.
"I got to start life over and create a new one... RT @Widsontheking: @ochocinco why did you delete your bio?," he tweeted August 29th.
"Don't feel bad, my black ass messed up, I made the bed now I gotta lay n it RT @MissShaiMUA: I actually feel bad for @ochocinco Idk why tho"
"How we feeling this morning? A little love from the "Black Guy" enjoy ya Saturday I was just thinking bout y'all...," he tweeted September 1st. (Chad Ochocinco's Twitter)
A few nights ago, Lozada appeared on "Nightline" and discussed her state of mind.
Evelyn Lozada says despite his arrest for allegedly head-butting her, she still loves estranged husband Chad Johnson -- but adds she can't imagine speaking to him any time soon. In an interview with "Nightline" that airs tonight, Lozada described the alleged domestic violence incident as "a bad choice that destroyed his life ... But it was his choice, it wasn't mine." Lozada said she hopes Chad is getting help and she wants "the best for him," but says that being apart is "the right thing." Johnson is expected to be arraigned in September. Evelyn filed for divorce 2 days after his arrest. (TMZ)
