It’s awesome to have dedication to your team. Miami Dolphins star Lynn Bowden Jr. gave himself a tattoo to celebrate his dedication. It probably didn’t turn out as sick as he would have preferred.

Lynn Bowden Jr. showed off this ink to Go Long with Tyler Dunne. The wide receiver was very proud of his work. He did it himself, and that’s never easy.

The tattoo features the number 15 and a dolphin. Some fans have taken to grilling him for his homemade artistic effort. Getting a tattoo is a serious decision, because it lasts forever. Giving one to yourself is on another level.

He has a leg dedicated to practicing his ink, and he grabbed a tattoo gun while talking to Dunne. Then he proceeded to freehand a design that kind of looks like his team’s logo. He didn’t have any type of design to use as reference and did it by memory as well.


Here’s the bad part. That ink says 15, but that jersey number won’t last long. In late April, league owners approved a proposal to expand the pool of position numbers. Now far more players can get single digit numbers, and Bowden picked 6. Now he’ll have to give himself a new tattoo.

What do you think about Bowden’s new ink? Sound off in the comments!
