Alabama Fan Answers Arkansas Tattoo Challenge

Videos by OutKick

Yesterday we brought you the Arkansas fan with the rabid Razorback covering his entire back. That was an uncomfortable mess of a tattoo. But at least it was fiery, wild, and soaked in masculinity — and meth, lots of meth. In that article we pointed out that Alabama and Kentucky fans were unlikely to take that tattoo standing down. After all, when it comes to idiots, both fan bases rule the college sports landscape and don’t like being challenged. But I didn’t think it would happen this quickly.

So you can imagine my surprise when I wake up this morning and y’all are Tweeting me a story about a $1700 Bama tattoo that took ten hours to create. 

Yes, it’s really an elephant rushing through a Crimson Tide.

And that’s really his back with that image.


Roll Tide.

Every time an Alabama fan does something stupid, I think, this absolutely can’t be topped.

And then it’s topped.

Put simply, this is an amazing tattoo.  

And here’s the thing, if you lived anywhere other than Alabama there’s a good chance people are going to see your tattoo and think an elephant is being attacked by an unseen crocodile. Or attempting to survive elephant genocide. Or deep in the grips of an awful menstrual cycle.

But in Alabama, it’s the Tide rolling in y’all. (Note, my Michigan-born wife mistakenly believed Alabama was near the coast based on the Crimson Tide nickname. She is not alone in this.) 

You can read more about the story of the tattoo here.

In the meantime, which tattoo would you rather have on your daughter’s boyfriend?

The Crimson Tide or the angry Razorback?

I think it’s fair to say both relationships are likely to end on Maury Povich’s “Who’s the father?” episodes.
