There’s fanbase, and then there’s Tom Brady fanbase. Patriots fans are quite a passionate bunch, but Brady’s supporters are by far the most dedicated of them all.
They are willing to go to the ends of the earth for the organization and, as proven during the Deflategate saga, they are willing to suit up for battle to defend Tom Brady in the face of NFL scrutiny.
With Brady’s success growing, the fans’ love for TB12 has also grown exponentially over the years. And the quarterback deserves it, having brought the franchise five Super Bowl titles, the most out of any signal caller in the history of the game.
Given all that, it’s no surprise that Patriots Nation want to immortalize Brady. One way of doing that is getting the quarterback’s signature tattooed.
That’s what 19-year old fan Megan Uhrynowski did after Brady signed her arm following Monday’s in-stadium practice.
Of course, this wasn’t the first time a Tom Brady or Patriots tattoo that’s made headlines over the years.
Back when the Patriots scored their epic 25-point comeback against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, claiming the franchise’s fifth title, another fan decided to get his own piece of Brady. However, unlike Uhrynowski, his tattoo wasn’t on his wrist, rather his rear end.
“He just came in and said, ‘I’m seeing if I could get a tattoo. I wanted to get a portrait of Tom Brady on my left butt-cheek,’” Emily Arsenault, who works at Boston Barber & Tattoo Co., explained at the time. “And we were just like, ‘OK, let’s do it.’”
“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!’”
Point proven – fans’ obsession for Brady is very real, and VERY permanent.
