Rich Franklin Tattoo Update: He Got a Henna Dragon

Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin bet that the loser of their UFC 126 fight would have to get a tattoo. We figured it was all in good fun, until we learned last week that Franklin was actually going tattoo shopping on Friday. We commended him for living up to the bet, but now we have learned the whole story was just a hoax.

On Monday, Franklin posted pictures of his “tattoo” on his website:

Yup, he went out and got a gigantic henna dragon tattoo on his back. Two more pics:

Free Steelers Tattoo Offered by Billy Hill Before Super Bowl

That’s right, passionate fans, now is your chance to show your devotion to your favorite team with some permanent ink. As I learned from PSAMP, Billy Hill and his tattoo parlor are offering free Pittsburgh Steelers tattoos leading up to the Super Bowl. They’ve made a lame video to go along with the promotion, but it sucks so badly I won’t post it up. Just know that in a week and a half, this guy’s artwork may be outdated:

I guess he figured his team was never going to win another championship. Just as long as nobody is going overboard like this guy or this nut job, I think we’ll be OK. And is it just me, or has this just become a played out trend?

Oakland Raiders Fan Face Tattoo: Commitment to Ugliness

It seems to be somewhat of a tattoo week here at LBS, but most of it can be attributed to Jimmy Traina’s Hot Clicks. Things started when we posted this ridiculous tattoo the loser of a fantasy football league had to get. Then through Hot Clicks we were exposed to the San Diego Padres fan who inked friar tuck all over his noggen. But the worst of all was this Raiders fan to whom I was introduced on Wednesday:

So Raiders fans are so hard they can tattoo their entire mugs, but they can’t afford tickets to the game? Maybe if he saved the cash from the eye black tattoo he could have managed a few ducats. Oh wait, forgot tattoos only cost a few packs of smokes in jail. Honestly though, Al Davis should consider something similar. It has to be better than what he’s got going on now.

A San Diego Padres Head Tattoo? Now That’s Hardcore

Are we all familiar with People of Walmart?  If you aren’t you should be, because it produces gold like this on a regular basis.  Anyway, if I were to tell you there was someone out there with a rather large San Deigo Padres tattoo on their head, would you think that person is a nut job or respect them as a hardcore fan.  Personally, I’m all over the latter.  Check out this picture that SI Hot Clicks shared with us:

Who’s more insane: this Padres fan or Colts fan Matt Ellis?  If you said the Padres fan because the Padres haven’t won jack — ever — I’m with you.  The Padres have changed their logo six times in their 40-plus year history.  While you might be inclined to think that means this ink will soon be outdated, I think that means it will soon be throwback and make this guy even more hardcore.  Are there really people out there giving this guy crap?  Come on.  It could be worse.  For eample, he could have a tattoo of a unicorn because he lost in fantasy football.

Losing Fantasy Football Bet Resulted in Unicorn Tattoo for Spud Mann

I’m not exactly the type of person who will put permanent ink on the line as the terms of a bet, but apparently some people are. In fact, in a fantasy football league between friends in Omaha, the guy who lobbied for the terms of the bet is the one who lost.

The Omaha World Herald has the story of Spud Mann who finished last in his fantasy league and had to get a tattoo agreed upon by the other nine members of the league. Here’s what they came up with:

He should have a fun time explaining that one to future girlfriends. Thinks he regrets it? Give it a few years, though we’re interested to hear how you think it compares to this tattoo and these ones.

San Francisco Giants Tattoos on the Rise After World Series Run

In addition to Tim Lincecum hoping the city was smoking and my facebook news feed being littered with Giants-related updates, there was another consequence of the Giants running through the playoffs and winning the World Series. Many San Francisco fans have been getting the team’s logo tattooed on their body.

San Francisco Examiner says on Monday alone, one given tattoo shop had five people come in to request the ink job and about 20 did in all throughout the postseason. Another shop says there were requests coming in throughout the season but there was a rush during the playoffs too.

You figure that would be something the players would do, but with them changing teams constantly it’s really only the fans who can do it. Players come and go, but fans can love their team for life.

Chris Birdman Andersen Went a Bit Overboard on the Neck Tattoo (Pictures)

It feels like we’ve been down this road so many times before so I really don’t even know why I’m bothering, but this must be addressed. Nuggets icon Chris Birdman Andersen is already well known for his wild hairstyles and crazy tattoos, but now he’s just taken things to a whole new level. Last year we saw the outline for a neck tattoo reading “Free Bird,” and apparently he spent the off-season filling it in. I don’t know what the proper term is for a filled in neck tattoo — neck sleeve, turtleneck — whatever it is, Andersen has it. He also added on to all his other tats and it doesn’t look like there’s an ink-free inch on his exposed skin.
