Tigers Fan Goes All In With Lip Tattoo Trying to Win ALDS Playoff Tickets

Tigers ace Justin Verlander took to his Twitter account recently to announce a contest to win a pair of tickets to one of the home ALDS playoff games against the Yankees.  All Verlander asked was for fans to use the hashtag #tigersALDS, and to be creative.

I say this guy who had the Detroit logo tattooed on his lower lip definitely qualifies for the latter requirement…and then some.

The lip and the tattoo belong to Tigers fan Jeff Holko, who says that despite tasting blood and ink for a week, the tat was well worth it.  Pretty extreme thing to do just for a pair of playoff tickets, but I’m sure people have done much worse for lesser reasons than trying to score some sports tickets.

And if Holko doesn’t win Verlander’s prized pair of playoff tix, then either the contest is rigged, or someone went and had their torso surgically grafted onto the body of a tiger in order to turn themselves into an actual living, breathing Detroit Tiger.  Of course both the person, and tiger, would die within minutes, but still, that would be damn cool to see.
