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."

Hmmmm...wonder what would happen if Green Bay releases him and he goes looking for another team?? How anxious would they be to sign him with a big-ass obnoxious SUPERBOWL RING tattooed to his neck. Not real bright there..

Sorry, but it reminds me of prison tattoos on the neck, like you see in the movies.

It's funny that TMZ has to post the original sketch of the tattoo because the one on this dude is so hard to see.

Get a life, dude.

There's more to living than moving a slab of pigskin over 100 yards on any given Sunday.

Why do Americans call themselves "World" Champions in a sport that's only played in THEIR country?

An ugly tattoo. Then again, I don't know of money tats that are attractive. It barely shows up on Sam's skin. And for those who think they're so hip with their skin ink, let me clue you in. Tats are pre-Y2K! Tattoos are SO mainstream now that there are Sears catalog models sporting tats. Yeah, you're really showing your rebel side! Lame-o.
