Florida Gulf Coast has easily put on the most entertaining show of the entire 2013 NCAA Tournament. For starters, they are the first ever 15th-seeded team to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. That alone was probably enough to inspire a fan to pay tribute to the team with a tattoo on his forearm, but there is so much more about this team to love.

Florida radio station B1039 shared the photo you see above on Wednesday, proclaiming it to be the first ever Dunk City tattoo. While I don’t know if that’s true, I can almost guarantee it won’t be the last. For those of you who don’t know, Dunk City refers to the nickname that has been given to FGCU because of the sick dunks like this they have thrown down throughout the tournament. Even the university itself has embraced the tag line.

And that’s not all. Their head coach also has a former supermodel for a wife and a tremendous sense of humor about it. The team has captured the hearts of thousands of people across the country with their up-tempo style and unique postgame celebration antics. The more we discuss it, the more I’m going to want a Dunk City tattoo. Since I don’t know how my wife would react to that, it’s probably best if I stop now.

H/T Game On!
