Clemson fan follows through on Dabo Swinney tattoo promise

Monday December 14th, 2015

A Clemson fan has followed through on his promise to celebrate the team’s big year with a tattoo of head coach Dabo Swinney.

Redditor “Disgruntled_AF_EOD” said he would get a “classy” tattoo of Swinney if the team made the College Football Playoff, and would add a Champion banner if they won the whole thing, and he actually followed through with it over the weekend.

The Tigers fan admitted he may have been a little tipsy when he made the promise, but he kept his word with a tattoo that currently resembles a slightly demonic ventriloquist dummy. The poster assured everyone the redness will fade once the bruising has gone away, making it a little less scary.
