Nicole Gavin probably has the best Bill Belichick tattoo.
The Massachusetts woman and die-hard Patriots fan commissioned an amazing tattoo of the New England head coach’s face earlier this month in celebration of the concept of “genius.” Taunton, Mass., artist Ryan Jones inked the Belichick tattoo on Gavin’s leg, where it features next to the face of Albert Einstein.
“He’s (Belichick) a smart guy and I’ve read a couple things about him,” Gavin said, according to the Taunton Daily Gazette. “He bases all of his coaching on this book called ‘The Art of War’ by Sun Tzu. He is just a genius.”
Gavin originally wanted to ink the Belichick tattoo prior to Super Bowl LIII, but a scheduling conflict prevented her from doing so at the time. After a delay of seven-plus months, she enlisted Jones to work his magic on Sept. 8, the day the Patriots unfurled their sixth Super Bowl banner and opened their 2019 regular season slate at Gillette Stadium. Jones spent six and a half hours on the Belichick tattoo, which is nothing short of a masterpiece.
Even Belichick would be proud of such a job well done.
