Given the number of atrocious athlete tribute tattoos we have shown you over the years here on LBS, it is with great pleasure that we show you one that is actually not all that bad. In fact, it’s pretty impressive.
A Twitter user who goes by @OH_Kai_ shared the photo you see above with Patrick Willis over the weekend, who decided it was worth passing along to his more than 250,000 followers.
“Wow! I can’t say I have ever seen myself tatted on someone before,” Willis wrote. “That’s wild! Thanks.”
As you can see, the ink includes Willis, Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Bill Walsh and some other Niners legends. The most important thing is that the artwork is well done, which is much more than we can say for tattoos like this and this. Don’t worry, I’m sure someone will come along who makes us lose our faith in tribute tattoos again very shortly.
