Start at quarterback, score a touchdown, kiss your tattoos. Then get ready for instant Internet superstardom.

A few years ago, "Tebowing" -- immediately dropping to one knee as if in prayer while on a football field, no prompt needed -- was all the rage. Now, thanks to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, there's flexing your large bicep and kissing your large bicep's large amount of tattoos. That'd be "Kaepernicking," according to the San Jose Mercury News.

After Sunday's win over Miami, Kaepernick -- or @Kaepernick7, for the Twitterati -- retweeted a photo sent to him by a fan. The meme-ready JPG was a picture of the quarterback flexing and flossing a ripped arm, with the caption, "Score a touchdown. Kiss your tattoos. #KAEPERNICKING," the newspaper reported.

The Kaepernicking express heads to Massachusetts on Sunday, when the 49ers face the New England Patriots with the NFC West title on the line.

Will Kaepernick add a #WinningDivisions hash tag to his resume?
