Ohio State fan gets realistic tattoo of Urban Meyer's face

Friday February 6th, 2015

Ohio State fan Kevin Alexander has found a striking way to commemorate the team's most recent national championship and the coach who led them to it.

Alexander, a life-long Buckeyes fan, initially wanted a tattoo of OSU's Block O logo, but left the tattoo chair on Wednesday with a remarkably accurate portrait of head coach Urban Meyer.

Meyer's face joins Woody Hayes and Archie Griffin on Alexander's arm, and the plan is to add an aerial view of Ohio Stadium as well as banners with Ohio State's championship years.

"I thought about maybe getting [Jim] Tressel on the backside of my arm," said Alexander, "but we're still in the thought process."

If Alexander follows through with his plan to further honor the Buckeyes, he might get the chance to have his ink done with Meyer himself.
