Found July 16, 2014 on College Spun:
PLAYERS: Jim Boeheim
TEAMS: Syracuse Orange
Jim Boeheim is everything to Syracuse basketball. The legendary coach arrived at Syracuse University in 1962 as a freshman basketball walk-on, and has never left, turning SU from a strong regional program in Central New York into a true national power. It is no surprise that Syracuse fans have a strong attachment to Boeheim. One fan loves the legendary coach so much, that he put it in ink.  The detail in this tattoo is truly amazing. While I don’t even see myself getting a 69-year old man’s face tattooed on my leg, if I do, I hope it shares the artistry of this one. [@GunZoneThree via @BrentAxeMedia]
