This understated fellow, to whom I was introduced by the leggy vixen at This Suit Is Not Black, is Glenn Timmerman, the self-proclaimed World's Biggest Bears Fan. Yes, that's a Bears logo tattooed in his head. Yes, that's Mike Ditka's signature below it. And yes, those are autographs of 44 present and former Bears. I don't know what else to say here, so I'll leave the words to Glenn:
Why the Tattoos? That has to be the Question that I hear the most. My answer is that I'm a Die-Hard fan, that wasn't happy just wearing the t-shirt with the Bears logo on it. To show my team colors. I wanted to show mine all the time.
And I won't even buy a Seahawks jersey (although I do have Seahawks memorial liver-scarring). Alas, one Bears tattoo, as you know, is never enough.
[T]he next step was a little more bold! I shaved my head bald, which was a big deal since i actually looked good with hair… before you know it I was walking out with the tattoo on my head. Now I was getting the responses that I wanted. everyone that saw it was amazed and had to stop me to let me know how cool it was.
Amazed? Yes. Cool? Uhhhh… me and Glenn must hang with different crowds. And I'm gonna go ahead and bet that his crowd is a little tougher.
Oh, and Glenn? The head tattoo isn't regrettable. But Rex Grossman's signature*? Really? The Sex Cannon? Buddy, c'mon. Those tattoos are permanent.
*Grossman's signature, I believe, is "INT." Zing!
