Getting your team’s logo inked on your flesh is a relatively common way of declaring your sporting allegiance, but what if you want to go the distance and really set yourself apart from the rest of those Johnny-come-lately bandwagon fans? Then read on
- Portraits. Think that Tom Seaver is the greatest Mets pitcher ever? Or that Kobe deserves all the praise that MJ got? Or that the Refrigerator should be in the NFL Hall of Fame in addition to the WWE Hall of Fame? Then put your money where your mouth is by getting his portrait inked on yourself. Not only will it send a clear to the world about which team you root for, but it will also set you apart from your fellow fans as a their undisputed king. Unless, of course, you meet a fan who thinks Ryan, Shaq or McMahon is more deserving. But then again, when you’re the one with the tattoo on your chest, how could you lose that argument?
- Never forget. If you’re considering getting a sports themed tattoo, then you probably not only watch the games on television, but regularly attend them. No doubt you’ve seen some historic games, so why not ink reminders of them on yourself? A no-hitter can turn into a date on a baseball; a cycle into a jersey number and a bat. You can line pennants you’ve seen won in person along an arm, leg, or shoulder. This is your chance to tell your team’s history—as seen by you—indelibly on your body.
- Rub it in. Sure, it’s a little childish, but what passionate sports fan isn’t? Let’s say you’re a Cardinals fan who lives in New York and the next time you’re at a Mets game and your team is losing, you pull up your shirt to reveal “2006 NLCS Champions: With Special Thanks to Carlos Beltran.” You’ll make them so apoplectic with rage that they’ll stop taunting you for wearing your Cardinals gear—for a minute, at least.
- Pick a letter. If you can find enough ink enthusiasts among your friends to spell out your team’s name, one letter and person at a time, then you’ll be guaranteed not only of air time at every game you attend as a group, but a beer at every sports bar in your neighborhood. It’s the ultimate testament to your loyalty to your team: and to the very concept of “team” itself. After all, if one of your inked friends is missing, your tattoo becomes meaningless. That’s what’s called hardcore.
