GB Packers Stud

Gets Super Bowl Ring

TATTOO

7/20/2011 1:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Most NFL champs rock their Super Bowl ring on their hand -- Green Bay Packers cornerback Sam Shields is wearing his on his NECK.

The 23-year-old defensive stud -- who was a rookie when the Packers won the Super Bowl this year -- rolled into the Ultimate Designz tattoo shop in Miami last week ... and pitched his ink idea to tattoo artist Sergio Garcia. He even brought in the ACTUAL ring for Sergio to study.

Sergio tells us it took about 3 hours to draw out the design of the tat (pictured above) -- and a little more than 2 hours to ink it onto Sam.

We're told Shields was a "really nice guy" throughout the whole process -- and even left a fat tip.

Fun Fact: Sam's actual Super Bowl ring has 109 diamonds in it, but his tattoo ONLY has 60 pictured ... because we're told putting that many small diamonds in the tattoo would have been "impossible."

Sam, that ugly tat is permanent,.You KNOW that right? Actually it CAN be removed but the pain and cost involved is pretty bad! Why do people feel the need to ink up to commemerate big events like a child being born or a Super Bowl win? Do you REALLY think you'll forget it? Also, tats do not show you to be any kind of a stand-out rebel. They are so passe' and pre-Y2K. Do you know how mainstream tats are? There are now models in Sears catalogs who sport tattoos! Wise up and lose the ink!

Great job! No sense in wasting any of his money on dumb-sh*t like investing into the early childhood education system or any any education system.

Say what you want to about Tiger at least he has invested substantially into the education system.

Different Rules Apply    

I think tatoos can be cool and/or sexy - but maiming one's own neck for all to see is just plain foolish. Not attractive and will only get worse with time.

Well said Mick! Tattoos once had meaning. Head-hunting tribesmen, pirates, Grandpa's with tattoos from WW2. Now everybody and their grandma have tattoos. The meaning of tattoo's has changed. It's now a way for one lame-o to recognize another lame-o. Unfortunately, once a person has a tattoo, its forever and its impossible to convince then of how lame tattoos are. Fuggin tattoos are lame.

Hey Mr. WANNABE...If you knew you were going to get brain damage from all the hits you took in football and you thought you were going to FORGET you won a SUPERBOWEL ring, you should have WORN IT IN YOUR NOSE or better yet moved the tat to the front of your neck and maybe a few inches higher.......

STEP AWAY FROM FROM THE BONG!

SERIOUSLY LAME...look at me! Pppppppppllllllleeeeeeeuuuuuse!

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with it. He's obviously excited about his victory. That is the biggest accomplishment for a team and who are you to judge how he wants to show it?? While I would never get it...who cares! It's his body and let him do with it what he wants! Hopefully the Pack will win another Superbowl and he'll get the other side of his neck tatted! GO GB!!

It's refreshing to see that there are still a few people who don't have tattoos commenting here. One way to detract away from an attractive woman's beauty is to slap an ugly tattoo on her. These women need to realize that when they reach the golden years these tattoos are going to change. Add 50-100 pounds and wrinkles and that tattoo is going to look like a multi colored raisin. As far as this tattoo on the guy here, his skin color makes the image unrecognizable. Fuggin tattoos.

Horrible lettering. Bad perspective. A guy with that kind of dough could have at least had enough taste to have a better piece of artwork on his NECK?

Wow! what a bunch of racist whiners with no sense of humor whatsoever. I personally wouldn't do it, but this is not the first neck tattoo ever done on a law-abiding citizen. It's really a shame so many of you are racist pigs who feel the need to comment negatively on his blackness.

That Super Bowl ring is a one-of-a-kind symbol of the highest achievement possible in one of the biggest professional sports. It can't leave you like a wife or girlfriend; it can't go out of favor like a favorite band; it can't fire you like an employer; it can't become passe like some stupid tattoo cliches out there.

No matter what happens after this in his life in or out of the league, that achievement will never go away and that ring will always mean something truly awesome to him. Players on other teams will understand that if he gets traded, and a few of his new teammates would probably wish they had one too.


Go Pack!! Repeat, baby!!!
