You gotta be pretty damn sure about something to get it permanently blasted with needles on to your body. Tattoos are much more acceptable now than they even were just a decade ago, but making that life long commitment is still a really big decision.
You need total confidence in not only the design itself, but the artist to actually give you that finish product you're envisioning when you walk through the doors.
JT Van Huss just added this latest piece of Mets ink to his collection. A big ass Polar Pete Alonso on his arm designed after our t-shirt design, and it came out pretty damn perfect.
"The tattoo artists name is Josh Martell. I got it done at Sacred Art here in Tucson AZ. Not my the first Mets tattoo. Almost have a full sleeve with them. I figured Pete was young and should be with the Mets for a while, and I just really liked the design." says JT.
I'm all in on Pete, but this is some next level shit.
Hopefully for all of us, and the Polar Bear himself, this turns out better for JT than the 33 tattoo he got for Harvey. Might wanna end up covering that one up. Just sayin'.
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
