That headline may be a little harsh. Too harsh, in fact. In an attempt to discredit my own headline (a strange practice, indeed), let’s roll through a few well-known awful sports tattoos.

I’m gonna start off with my personal favorite, this horrendous Manchester United back tattoo. Just feast your eyes on that abomination. I can’t stop staring at it. The penmanship on “Sir Alex Ferguson” is beyond atrocious, as if a 6-year-old provided the template. This is the actual Man U logo. It’s not a good logo, mind you, but it looks a hell of a lot better than the tattoo portrayal. My favorite parts might be the “1986-2013” and “…LEGEND…” parts, though. The dates are meant to represent how long Ferguson managed the club, but it makes it look like he’s dead. And I just flat-out don’t get the ellipses around “LEGEND”. Like somebody’s whispering gently into our ears.

Our next entry is this dandy. I don’t think there’s really much to be said, even. I’m a little nervous to say anything, because there’s a greater-than-zero chance that that’s our own Kevin Roberts.

We’ll end it with this ridiculousness. That one is so bad that I have a hard time believing it’s actually real. Somebody gave this the green light? What’s with the font? And the ring surrounding the whole thing? Think the tattoo “artist” fell asleep halfway through.

Anyway, we’re here for the aforementioned Bills fan and his awful tattoo. Let’s take a look:


“I love pizza and I love buffalo so here new tattoo”. Solid, simple reasoning, despite coming up short on actual, readable English. Is this a Bills-shaped pepperoni pizza with a streak of pizza sauce through the middle? And what’s on the streak? Owl pellets? And what are those little specks behind the buffalo? Is it pooping cheese sauce?

Don’t ever change, drunk people with sweet tattoo ideas.
