Seahawks fan gets Super Bowl champs tattoo
EDMONDS, Wash. -- A lot of Seahawks fans are showing their appreciation for the team this championship week. But, perhaps, none more than Tim Connors.
At the beginning of the season, Connors felt so confident the Seahawks would win the Super Bowl this year he got a tattoo on his right forearm that already declared the Seahawks as champs.
"I'm not crazy. I'm not crazy at all," Connors said.
Connors says 95 percent of 'Hawks fans approve of his tattoo. And to the 5 percent who think he's going to bring the team bad luck, he says he's a true fan who believes in the Seahawks' ability. However, even his tattoo artist, Lonnie Moon of Good Karma Body Art in Edmonds, was apprehensive beforehand.
"I said, 'hey man, people are going to attack you... that you're the jinx of the team,' " Moon said. And when Connors convinced him to go through with it, Moon answered: "He's right, you know what, you think like that, you're not a real fan."
Lonnie and his fellow artists are now offering discounted Seahawks tattoos through the end of the playoffs. Instead of charging $150 per hour, their fee is down to about $100 per hour.
And for all the skeptics still out there, Tim says: "There's no tiny little bit of doubt at all - anywhere in my head."
