Originally written July 23, 2012 on The Last Angry Fan:
I’m not keen on the lettering, but the gorilla portion of the tattoo is fantastic. Redskins OT Trent Williams is a big, big man, and whether you know it or not, he’s been given the nickname”Silverback” (by himself actually) in deference to his size. He so thoroughly enjoys his animalistic moniker that he went and had this tattoo of a Silverback gorilla inked on his back. From TMZ…
WIlliams — whose self-annointed nickname is “The Silverback” due to his aforementioned massive size — got the tat a few months back of … what else … a silverback gorilla. The ink cost Williams around $3,000 (plus a “nice tip”) … courtesy of Sergio Garcia at Ultimate Designz in Miami. We’re told Williams had to sit through two separate seven-hour sessions … which he took like a champ.
Whatever floats your boat, amirite? But in my opinion, if you’re going to get a gorilla tattooed on your back, you’ve got to go with Koko, the ape who could do sign language. That chimp’s alright. High-five!
