After Carlos Correa defended Jose Altuve's highly-speculated decision to ask his teammates not to rip his shirt off due to an unfinished, "bad" tattoo on his left collarbone, and not because of exposing a buzzer as many have thought, Altuve showed off the tat while walking by reporters Monday.

ESPN's Jeff Passan says Altuve walked past reporters shirtless and a collarbone tattoo was present.

Former Baltimore Oriole Adam Jones was one of many not buying Correa's story, which could be why Altuve felt it necessary to give people a glimpse of his ink.

Whether this was intentional by Altuve or not is up for speculation, but it certainly proves there is, in fact, a tattoo on his left collarbone as Correa said.
