Patriots fan gets 'Tom Brady' tattooed on the inside of his lip

Friday January 16th, 2015

People in their early 20's are not the wisest bunch. Johnny Nichols, a 21-year-old Patriots fan, is a perfect example. 

Nichols is from the Boston area but he's been traveling through Southeast Asia. While in Indonesia, Nichols decided to get "Tom Brady" tattooed on the inside of his lower lip.

"Have to represent from 9,000 miles away!" he told Boston Magazine.

Judging by a post on his Facebook page, he might not have been thinking clearly when he walked into the tattoo shop.

"You ever wake up one morning after a crazy night and just realize you have Tom Brady tattooed on your lip?…I did…LETS GO PATS!" he wrote, according to Boston Magazine. 

The Patriots' game against the Colts Sunday starts at 7:40 a.m. Indonesia time. Brady's biggest fan had better not oversleep.
