From Larry Brown Sports:

Missy Franklin said before the Games that she was planning to get an Olympics tattoo, and she went through with her plans. The 17-year-old swimmer got a small tattoo of the Olympic rings around her right hip and shared a picture of it on her Twitter account Thursday.

Franklin had the approval of her parents and says this will be her only tattoo.

"Getting a tattoo has never been something ever thought I would do, but this one just has so much meaning to it and it is really something that you have to earn," Franklin told TODAY.com. "Not a lot of people have the opportunity to get it, so I just feel like it’s an honor to get it."

"This will be the only one, and she's earned it," Dick Franklin told TODAY.com while in London.

We'll see if this is her only one -- lots of people say they're addictive. Maybe she'll end up adding to it if she participates in future Olympics the way Stephanie Rice did.
