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."

For all of you talking trash about people liking tattoos cause they wanna be a rebel or that they are just pointless and stupid.Maybe you just care WAY TOOOO much about what other people are saying and think.I have tattoos and i dont get em for any other reason except.....(this may suprise some of you)....I LIKE EM!
I dont understand are you being judgemental is it because its a Green Bay Packer and your team didnt get a ring to even tattoo on their neck or is it because hes black,rich and ur being a judgemental stuck up yuppie?Either way...I'm going to keep getting tattoos whether you bastards are starring,talking,or judging me,it doesnt bother me.Cause i know youll be saying it under your breathe to yourself!

Why do these black atheletes get the crappiest tatoos? All that money going to back yard tattoo parlors. They need to realize a good large tattoo is easily over $1000.00. There are NO DEALS IN TATTOOS YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR and they need to open their eyes.

"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."


Yea, as a millionaire he has absolutely no room to shell over 500 dollars for a tattoo.

Seriously?

I can understand the representation of loyalty to his team and the obvious excitement over the accomplishment of a super bowl ring, but a tattoo on his neck?

What was he thinking? Or was he thinking at all?

Wrong positioning (distortion), bad color design and by the way kid...you're black. That thing is gonna need touching up every few years.

Most of the responders, like me, are anti-tat. And ladies, if you are considering getting inked, remember this old saying:
"Today's blooming rose on a young woman's chest, is tomorrow's wilted weed on an old lady's stomach."
