Clint Dempsey made his Seattle Sounders debut on Saturday, and his new biggest fan may have already been established. The US soccer star came over from Tottenham and was a major signing for the MLS. Was the move big enough to warrant a neck tattoo? That’s debatable.
There are athlete tribute tattoos and then there are tattoos of a player’s face on your neck. One Sounders fan decided to go with the latter and take the concept of rooting for your favorite player to an entirely new level.

Unfortunately, this is not the first horrible tribute tattoo we have seen. Whether it’s Davis Love III or Stephon Marbury, fans have some interesting ways of showing their dedication to a particular player. There’s just something about the neck tattoo that makes it that much more disturbing.
