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.

0720-green-bay-tattoo-exd
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."

Note to self, never ever ask for a tattoo from SERGIO GARCIA.

How long has this "artist" SERGIO GARCIA been tattooing? Looks like he was self taught in prison.

Makes you feel bad for the real tattoo artists out there when some chump named SERGIO GARCIA does work like this.

He's a WORLD CHAMPION, he could put a tat anywhere he wants. And to the people who said the NFL should regulate tattoos, that's just stupid because most of them come INTO the NFL tatted and for the last 100+ days they haven't even been in the NFL.

UNFAN ME PLEASE!    

uuuhhhh...actually he is NOT a WORLD CHAMPION. He is a champion of the United States of America NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. It is only if, as in the World Cup of Soccer, there were countries from all over the world that competed could you say that.......

UNFAN ME PLEASE!    

uhhhh.... he is actually champion of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE only....which is a GREAT accomplishment, but not really a WORLD champion. IF and ONLY IF there were teams from all/most counties in the world could you accurately make that claim. I am just saying....

Why is everyone hatin on sam? All of you ppl that have nothing better to do are just jealous that you will never have a superbowl ring, ever be superbowl champs, or never even probly have enough money to blow on a tatoo. This guy is just a rookie and already an awesome player starting on a superbowl winning, and will probly end up winning 1 or 2 more if he stays with the Packers.
Yea down the road when he gets all wrinkly it will probly look bad but im pretty sure he'll still be well off financially and he can just get it removed (if he even wants to). And for all of you idiots talking about how hard it would be for him to get a job... your retarded. First of all, he probly wont need to get a job after the NFL, this was barely his first year and he played a big part in packers superbowl year. The next time this Sam negotiates his contract he's gonna get big money! And if for some reason he does end up blowing all his money, someone will hire a forner NFL all-star and superbowl champ.
All you ******* haters need to shut up and go drop your stupid comments on a Lidsey Lohan article, or Cedric Benson beating the **** out of his roommate, or pac-man jones getting arrested again!
Go Packers baby!! Back to Back champs 2012!!!
