"Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans and her new husband, Courtland Rogers, got tattooed this weekend -- and one of their pieces is pretty controversial.

The 21-year-old reality star showed off photos of the couple's new ink Sunday on Twitter.

While the Ke$ha-loving Jenelle got a skull with a flower and feather (left), her hubby sparked racism accusations with his Confederate flag art (right).

Yes, a Confederate flag.

Fans quickly began calling the ink racist -- but Rogers claims it's not racially motivated, telling his followers that his grandmother picked it out for him.

"I love black people !! This tatto [sic] was dedication to my grandma," he says. "The flag don't just mean racist !! It was her culture back then !!"

"well I def am not racists my bestfriend is black," he added.
