Patriots fan gets Tom Brady portrait tattooed on his backside (pic)
A clearly devoted New England Patriots fan recently celebrated the team’s Super Bowl LI triumph by getting a tattoo. While the notion that a fan would get a celebratory tattoo doesn’t seem all that strange, it’s where the fan got said tattoo that makes for such a bizarre story.
Boston Barber & Tattoo Co. had several visitors on the day of the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory parade seeking tattoos. But one fan’s request was far and above the weirdest of all.
“He had decided the night before that he was getting this done,” said shop employee Emily Arsenault, via Boston.com. “It wasn’t just spur of the moment. We had quite a few obnoxious people coming in, intoxicated from the parade. But he was actually probably the most calm one out of all of them.”
Arsenault noted the fan, of course regaled in a No. 12 Brady jersey, had a plan and plainly requested a tattoo featuring “a portrait of Tom Brady on my left butt-cheek.”
Arsenault reports it took tattoo artist Catarina “Cat” Quintino between two and three hours to complete the job.

Impressive. The resemblance is uncanny. Kudos to the tattoo artist for creating such an accurate representation of Brady despite the … unconventional canvas.
Shockingly, this isn’t even the strangest location for a Tom Brady-themed tattoo (here). What a world.
And thankfully for the Patriots fan in question, he was quite pleased with the finished product.
“We got a few pictures,” Arsenault said. “He was proud of it and showed it off. He wasn’t scared. He was like, ‘Oh, you want to take a picture of my butt? Go for it!’”
Now that’s quite a story. No ifs, ands or butts.
