Meet Victor Thompson, a resident of Laconia, N.H., who decided to tattoo the Patriots logo on both sides of his head before Super Bowl XLII. Mr. Thompson will be watching this Sunday's rematch from prison, where he's serving three months for shoplifting. Fortunately, jail will be the perfect place for Thompson to get the facemask portion of his tattoo, which is now his "number 1 goal." Read more about this unusual fellow in his interview with Deadspin.
The only thing more psychotic than getting a tattoo of Eli Manning giving a patronizing noogie to older brother Peyton is getting that tattoo on the creepiest part of your anatomy. So to be perfectly clear, this man walked into a tattoo parlor and requested a complex brotherly relationship between two football players he doesn't know be placed on the first spot he was spanked by his own mother. This is the type of scenario that would have sent both Freud and Shakespeare into early retirement.
Football fans are among the most passionate in sports. They shell out thousands of dollars for game tickets, devote countless hours to their fantasy teams, subject themselves to life-threatening quantities of beer and cased meats, and forsake their families and God to watch their favorite genetic freaks repeatedly concuss each other on Sundays. They're also known to walk drunk into tattoo parlors. Collected here are the worst permanent ink stains commissioned by the world's most undiscerning fans.
