What's more fun than continuing to collect all the mistakes, gaffes and outright idiocies athletes have tattooed on their bodies? Links to the pictures!
What about Greg Ostertag's Fred Flintstone on his calf?
LaDainian Tomlinson has the misspelled "INSPERATION" on his arm. Sigh.
--Mike (San Diego)
You could've mentioned David Bey, a former heavyweight boxer who had his own name spelled incorrectly on his arm.
--Scott Shaffer (NYC)
I never understood "Big Dady" as written on former Oklahoma State basketball player, Jason Keep. Maybe that was intentional.
--James Kerr (Edmond, Okla.)
Bobby Maze, starting point guard for the Tennessee Vols, has a tattoo on his leg that reads "Stuggles Made Me," instead of "Struggles Made Me." Which leads everyone to ask: Who's Stuggles?
I am a tattoo artist in the Phoenix valley area and I can honestly say that athletes' tattoos are a never-ending source of entertainment for us. One would think with the millions of dollars they make, they could afford better work. At the end of the day, I get a good chuckle and make a little extra money on the cover-ups I eventually do on all of the kids that decide to copy these athletes.
-- William Allen (Chandler, Ariz.)
Former Boston College RB Josh Haden tattooed the BC logo onto his right pec -- before he decided to transfer.
--Tom White (Farmingdale, N.Y.)
The fastest player in USC football history (Sultan McCullough) has a woman's name tattooed on his chest in letters four inches high: MABLE. Never mind that his mother spells her name Mabel.
--Eli Karon (Los Angeles)
