Worst Fan Tattoo of All Time?
There’s a lot about art that I don’t understand. I don’t know why this is art. I don’t know why Michelangelo couldn’t appreciate Titian’s “Venus of Urbino.” I don’t know why Picasso liked mangling everyone’s face.
Being as kind as I can be, maybe this Pittsburgh Steelers tattoo falls in the same category. Maybe it’s super brilliant, and I don’t understand it. Perhaps you can help me.
Maybe the unsteady, child-like writing of the word “Steelers,” eschewing the bold, stable font that’s usually in the logo, represents an offense struggling to find a new, non-smashmouth, non-traditional identity. Maybe the hypocycloids that don’t touch represent an offensive line that’s been unable to play cohesively together. Maybe the wavering, unsure circle around the logo represents the chaos surrounding an NFL franchise. Maybe all the blank space represents the void left in the souls of Steelers fans when their team fails to win the Super Bowl.
Or maybe this is just an awful, awful tattoo. I don’t know. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.
God knows I have my fair share of tattoos. However, I am also smart enough to know they are stuck there for life and you would think that would take precedence over just being an over the top fan….or maybe not…..help me out here….You’re thoughts? Perhaps someone would like to share their best Victoria Generals tattoo? No takers?
