Fan Gets Massive Back Tattoo of Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Everyone has someone in their lives who claims to be a big sports fan of a league, team or player. But while a superfan might name his children after his favorite athletes or paint his house in team colors, it takes a special sort of fan to tattoo their entire back in honor of a sports star.
