“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.”
