"Now he’s getting a tattoo yeah,he’s getting ink done. He asks for a 13 but they drew a 31. Friends say he’s trying to hard and he's not quite hip. But in his own mind de’s the—he’s the dopest S***!" — Pretty Fly for a White Guy, the Offspring
Getting a tattoo is a big decision that should not be made in the spur of the moment. Anyone who's seen our “ Backstreet Boys 4 Life ” tattoo across our heart can attest to the fact that what is cool one day will not be the next. But look at these guys — we're assuming they are guys who have done gone and gotten Oilers tattoos . You have to respect the guy who loves the Mighty Oil so very much that he went and got the 1986-87 Oilers lineup tattooed on his arm.
You think you're an Oilers fan? Do you have the name Reijo Ruotsalainen tattooed on your bicep? No! We bet you don ’ t. Until you're willing to put ink to arm and have the words “ Mark Napier ” tattooed on you — that will follow you until science invents a cheaper form of tattoo removing laser — you can wake up in the morning look yourself in the mirror and say “ Chuck Haynes of Troy, Ohio is ten times the Oilers fan that I am. ”
