Kentucky Pickers: UK tattoo edition


If there’s one thing Kentucky fans love more than their teams, it’s the stuff they can buy to support them. KSR wants to see your odd and unique UK memorabilia. No, not just your run of the mill UK flag or t-shirt collection. We want the weird stuff. Have a stuffed Wildcat eating a cardinal? Send it in. A portrait of John Calipari made entirely of popcorn? Send it in. The odder, the better.

We all know Kentucky fans are passionate, but some love their Cats so much they get it stitched on their skin. I’ve seen some cool UK tattoos in my life, you know, your standard interlocking U-K and a Cat paw or two, but these fans go above and beyond in expressing their fanhood.

Jason Wigginton:


Another Wildcat eating a Cardinal:


Jesse Logan’s Japanese Wildcat:


Ryan Masterson’s UK football tattoo:


KentuckyDude’s UK basketball tattoo:


This guy took his love for Adolph Rupp to another level:


JT Gibson’s tattoo, which he got while watching UK lose to Indiana in the 2011-2012 season:



Think you can do better? Send us a picture of your unique “UK junk” along with the story behind it and we’ll post the best ones on the website. Email pictures to [email protected] with the subject heading “Kentucky Pickers.”

    Nothing wrong with representing BBN…..but for God’s sake men, find a tattoo artist and not someone who can’t even color by numbers.

    You can do a lot with a tattoo considering the rather abundant surface area most of those guys are working with. Sorry, I admire the dedication, but that is some redneck sh*& right there

    That Japanese Wildcat was the shiiiiiiiit. The one of Adolph Rupp will give me nightmares though thanks a lot.

    Tattoos are wonderful ways for people to express themselves, things they like, their life story, etc. I just recently got my first, as a matter of fact. All that said, with the exception of KentuckyDude’s, those are some of the ugliest tattoos I’ve ever seen.

    How are you going to feel about yourself when a Fortune 500 CEO ask you to play golf with yourself and they see a tatoo on your leg or arm, neck or face? Most likely negative…It’s like cigarettes. It’s a negative….

    9 – I’d probably feel just fine. If a Fortune 500 CEO (or anyone for that matter) has a problem with my tattoo(s), they can kind go bugger themselves.

    This is the exact same type of thing that this site and the fans make fun of Louisville about. Seems kind of hypocritical…
