Mississippi State is having its best season in a very long time, which is obviously going to increase fan interest in the team, but a man named James Denton took his love of the Bulldogs, and social media, to the next level by getting "#HAILSTATE" tattooed on his forearm on Saturday.

For those not in the know, Hail State is the name of the Mississippi State fight song and is second only to cowbells in the ethos of Bulldogs football.

While sports tattoos are always a tricky proposition, getting a hashtag tattoo seems like something that could never possibly be construed as a good idea.

As Busted Coverage points out, the oddest thing about this ink is that Denton seems to have never even used the hashtag on his Twitter account, yet is still so fond of it he had it etched into his skin forever.
