Steeler fan has over 200 hours' worth of tattoos: This guy was my Little League baseball coach--though he didn't have the tattoos back then. Bonus fun fact: he named his son after Mel Blount. More pics here.

I hate when articles about tattoos don't show photos, so I did a little research and found out that Chris "Blick", owner of American Tattoos, apparently did Ron Vergerio's Steelers art. Click on the black and white photos to see larger, full-color images. I am assuming these are the tattoos referenced in the article. Too bad the poor guy has Kordell Stewart forever on his back ;) Thanks mookieproof.

You know sometimes people take things way too far.

Football fans should not be allowed in tatoo parlors. This guy may be almost as bad as the guy who has the signatures of the Chicago Bears players tatooed on him. I love the Rams, but sports teams come and go.

I love the Rams, but sports teams come and go. Just curious, but do you feel that way because you are the fan of a team that has moved cities? I love the Steelers, but I doubt I would consider putting their logo on my body. I might consider my college mascot, because I have more of a connection to it than a sports team that just happens to be from where I was born. I like the Steelers for more reasons than their location (I think the way the ownership works, etc), but I am not connected to the team. But it isn't just sports fan who go overboard with the body art. I saw a photo of some idiot recently who had "MR ICE" tattooed all over himself. Takes alll kinds, I suppose.

So when the Steelers lose the superbowl is he going to have a bullet hole tattooed on each temple?
