Stephanie Rice adds to her Olympic rings tattoo (Picture)

Stephanie Rice better not swim too much longer otherwise she might run out of tattoo room under her arm.

The Australian swimmer added to her Olympic rings tattoo and showed the updated ink off on her Twitter and Instagram account Thursday. Rice got her tattoo after participating in the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing where she became a star after winning three gold medals.

At just 24 years old, she still has plenty of time to participate in more Olympics, though a shoulder injury has derailed her career recently.

When star swimmers like her get the Olympic rings tattoo, it’s no wonder someone like Missy Franklin wanted in on the act.

Missy Franklin got her Olympic rings tattoo (Picture)

Missy Franklin said before the Games that she was planning to get an Olympics tattoo, and she went through with her plans. The 17-year-old swimmer got a small tattoo of the Olympic rings around her right hip and shared a picture of it on her Twitter account Thursday.

Franklin had the approval of her parents and says this will be her only tattoo.

“Getting a tattoo has never been something ever thought I would do, but this one just has so much meaning to it and it is really something that you have to earn,” Franklin told TODAY.com. “Not a lot of people have the opportunity to get it, so I just feel like it’s an honor to get it.”

“This will be the only one, and she’s earned it,” Dick Franklin told TODAY.com while in London.

We’ll see if this is her only one — lots of people say they’re addictive. Maybe she’ll end up adding to it if she participates in future Olympics the way Stephanie Rice did.

Jason Terry gets tattoo of Celtics’ leprechaun holding championship trophy (Picture)

Jason Terry revealed a new tattoo that is sure to endear him to Boston Celtics fans.

Terry, who played with the Mavericks the last eight seasons before signing with Boston in July, shared a few pictures of his new tattoo via Twitter on Saturday. His new ink features the Celtics’ leprechaun logo with the championship trophy swapped in where the leprechaun would otherwise be balancing a basketball on his finger. The tattoo appears on the inner part of Terry’s left biceps, opposite the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy tattoo on his right biceps.

Terry’s original championship trophy tattoo became a source of controversy when it was revealed he got the tattoo before the 2010-2011 NBA season began. At that point he hadn’t won an NBA championship, and he promised to get it removed if the Mavericks didn’t win the title.

As fate would have it, Dallas rallied to beat Miami in the NBA Finals, making the tattoo decision look prescient. Celtics fans are hoping the new ink will result in the same outcome.

As an interesting note, the Celtics’ leprechaun logo was actually designed by Red Auerbach’s brother Zang in the early ’50s.

Reuben Foster changes commitment to Auburn, gets tattoo to prove it (Picture)

Reuben Foster is the top-rated linebacker for the 2013 recruiting class according to multiple recruiting services, and he made some waves when he changed his commitment from Alabama to Auburn last Thursday.

The Auburn (Ala.) High School product said he was announcing his decision so he could put it behind him and begin getting prepared for college.

Foster dressed up his daughter in an Auburn outfit and used her as a prop to announce which school he chose. He also showed off a new tattoo with the Auburn logo on his forearm to show his commitment was really sealed in ink:

This Luc Robitaille armpit tattoo is one of the grossest things you’ll ever see (Picture)

As you know, the Kings won their first Stanley Cup in team history on Monday night. Above you see a picture of Kings legend Luc Robitaille celebrating the win with the team. Although he spent 14 seasons and three separate stints in Los Angeles, Robitaille had to venture to Detroit to win a championship. He did, however, score a ton of goals and rack up a ton of points. Unfortunately, he also left a lasting impression on Kings fans. Why is that unfortunate? Because it led to arguably the most disturbing tattoo in the history of sports tattoos. Proceed at your own risk.

Fan has a hideous Tim Tebow Florida tattoo on his shin (Picture)

Well before he put together a winning season and won a playoff game in Denver, Tim Tebow was a major celebrity. Tebowmania was just as real when Tebow was leading the Florida Gators to national championships as it is now. The photo above that Clay Travis shared with us on Twitter is walking proof of that — no pun intended. As you can see, some fan has one of the worst tattoos we’ve ever seen of Tebow in his Florida uniform on his shin.

The sad (but by no means surprising) part is that this is one of the ugliest tattoos known to mankind but it isn’t even the worst Tebow tattoo. It still has to compete with this tattoo that a radio host was forced to get and this lost bet that may be have resulted in the worst tattoo in human history. Keep doing you, Tebowmaniacs.
