Detroit Lions Fan Gets An 0-16 Tattoo On His Chest To Commemorate Their Perfect Season
NFL

What Do You Do When Your Favorite Team Goes 0-16? Tattoo It On Your Chest, Of Course.

1/7/09 in NFL   |   Pat   |   5147 respect



One Lions fan followed up their 0-16 disaster of a season with a disaster of his own. Instead of sulking away in shame like he probably should have done, one fan identified only by his first name, Dan, decided to forever have "0-16 2008" etched into his chest, under a Lions logo. He hopes to one day add "Super Bowl Champions" underneath it, but my magic 8 ball says he has a better chance of starring in 8-Mile 2 before that happens.

Is this the stupidest sports related tattoo ever? Maybe, because it's definitely not something to be proud of. The fact that it signifies arguably the worst feat in the history of the NFL definitely puts it right up there. But if Dan really wants to hide his tattoo, he can just put on a shirt. The same can't be said for this guy, who started working on this tattoo a couple years ago. There's no hiding a tattoo of Tom Brady's helmet on your head.



Now if Dan Orlovksy (or maybe Sam Bradford) blows out his knee in week 1 for the Lions, the circle of tattoo stupidity will finally be complete.

At least the Ford's won't benefit financially from this tattoo.

I thought the same thing.....it's easy to gloat about "your team" when they are winning. I will at least give the guy credit for being a true fan of his team.

I hate to say it about my Lions, but he may need to add a comma and add 2009 in about 11 and a half months.

OK, who gets a Tattoo on there HEAD for the first place.  Next, the Lions fan is gonna get a tattoo with how the Lions did each season until he is 55.  And when the Titans win the Super Bowl, someone is probably gonna get a Titans logo by the Lombardi Trophy somewhere on there arm or butt.  GO TITANS

This is apparently the 2008 version of a "Born to Lose" tattoo.

I think the 16 and lion should be placed on the lower right cheek and let the 'O' speak for itself

He should add a Matt Millen Tat...that would help with the LADIES

An 0-16 tatoo on your chest? Hilarious! If my Browns go 0-16, I fire the players, coaches, and management!

Wow. The Lions thing is funny...but the Pats helmet...? That is just freaking creepy.
