It’s Centaur Tebow Time

Note to self: Don’t ever make a bet where the loser has to get a tattoo or this will happen:

That’s an image of Christian quarterback Tim Tebow, football in one hand, cross in the other.

Juan Contreras explained to ESPN how he got the tattoo:

Contreras and his friend Gabe Lopez, who owns Love N Hate Elite Tattoo Studio in Denver, took great delight earlier this season in teasing fellow Broncos fan Josh Lucero about being a Tebow supporter. So Contreras and Lucero, who’s a tattoo artist at Love N Hate, agreed to a wager when Tebow was named starting quarterback of the Broncos: If Tebow won five or more games this season, Contreras would get a “Tebow Time” tattoo; if Tebow won fewer than five, Lucero would get a tattoo disparaging Tebow.

That baby’s on his upper thigh. (Ouch.)

In case you’re wondering how Tebow will react to it… he can’t possibly take it well. For the Bible tells him so:

“Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.” — Leviticus 19:28

    I’ve been joking for years that one day I’ll get a Lev 19:28 tattoo.

      That’s a great idea, my wording would be “Do not…put tattoo marks on yourselves…” — Leviticus 19:28

    Note to self… never get a tat at Love N Hate Tattoo Studio. Seriously that’s some horrible art work, never mind the content.

      It’s called Love N Hate Tattoo Studio. Was it ever really likely to be on your list? It’s like hanging out a sign that says: Specializing in gang and prison tattoos. And we only have black ink.

    • Randy Riggs

      Agreed.  Looks like a jailhouse tattoo.  Awful, just awful.

    Yeesh, at least wait til it heals before taking the photo that will memorialize your bad tattoo forever on the internet. I may lose my lunch.

      Just think what it’ll look like when his dark leg hair starts growing through it.   Shetland pony?

      I ‘m sure the devout Tebow will be shocked to be compared to a lusty pagan centaur.

    Is it only me, or does anyone else think that organized sports involving mythical monsters would be so kickass it would be criminal?

      I hadn’t thought about centaur football before, but it certainly has potential!

        Not just centaurs, tho. Gorgons and beholders and mind flayers and ents and such (yes I play too much Dungeons and Dragons, go away!)

    • Drew M.

      I would actually watch that!
