Tattoos adorn the torso and arms of Ravens reserve cornerback Chris Johnson, covering his body in a mosaic of smiling faces and names. It's Johnson's way of paying tribute to his family, of ensuring that those loved ones remain close to his heart. "This way, they're always a part of you," Johnson said. "They're literally on your skin permanently, just like family is permanent to me." On the left side of his ribs is a tattoo of a face and two numbers. The face is that of his sister, Jennifer Johnson. The numbers are the years she lived: 1978 to 2011.
