Michael Phelps fan gets tattoo of gameface
Michael Phelps went viral earlier this week when he sat stone-faced before the 200m butterfly semifinals as South African swimmer Chad Le Clos tried to distract him. One fan enjoyed the moment so much he decided to preserve it in tattoo form.
In terms of artwork, the piece is actually pretty fantastic:

Phelps came in second in the semifinal but went on to blow Le Clos and the rest of the competition away to win yet another gold medal. We saw some creative memes born from the gameface (see them here), but we didn’t think anyone would take it serious enough to get a tattoo. That said, nothing surprises us at this point.
