Update: UK fan follows through with tattoo promise to Willie


In case you missed it: When WCS was making his decision a fan tweeted him and said if you come back I will get your face tattooed on my body. I am not saying this is the reason he came back, but we all know how much Willie loves a well colored picture…even if it is on someones body.

The fan kept his promise and Willie Cauley-Stein has officially joined the Mt. Rushmore of Michael Gray’s body.  He joins the ranks of some of the greatest people in history including Abraham Lincoln and two of the characters from Lost.

 

UPDATE:

Here is the final product. You saw it here first folks.

Willie Tat

I am kinda upset there isn’t a coloring book in the tattoo….but it’s still pretty cool nonetheless. Michael (@Therealmjeezy on twitter)  got his work done by Nate Corder at Quality Custom Tattoos in Somerset, Ky. and I hear he is open to do it again anyone wants to send the twins promises to do the same.

Awesome or Weird?

    Weird, like total groupie status. Same kinda people who go to the airport to greet the team after an elite 8 loss or something.

    I predict that, if the TWINS return and UK wins #9 next year, WCS will go down as one of the most beloved wildcats of all time. (Heck, he already is probably in the top 5 most beloved over the past 20 years already.) This deflate the weirdness factor and make it simply cool.

      Not being a fan of tatoos, I can see how it comes across as weird … BUT … since Willie is, and will always be, one of our most beloved Cats, I’m being swayed to the other side. It’s pretty cool!

    I’ve known Michael for several years and he’s a great guy. I guarantee you all that he doesn’t care what you think. He made a bet and he’s following through with it, which makes him more of a man than most of you message board pu**ies.

    • Michael is a moron
      7:11 pm April 19, 2014 Permalink

      You know what would have made more of a man? Not making the bet in the first place. Think about the risk/reward options. You can definitely tell about a person’s character by the decisions they make in life. This was a horrible one.



    • Haha
      10:17 pm April 19, 2014 Permalink

      It was not a BET!!! How on earth do you call that a bet? He made a promise/bribe. There was never a wager, no one lost anything.



    • Do whut?
      10:17 pm April 19, 2014 Permalink

      BigBlue92 if he doesn’t care what anyone here thinks why do you seem to? And since you’re posting on a message board what does that make you? See how that works?

    It’s neither weird nor awesome. Just a guy doing what he said he would do. It’s what he wants, no need for the rest of the world to jump in on it.



    • schwing
      6:24 pm April 19, 2014 Permalink

      he said he would do something stupid. therefore it is stupid. and since he publicly announced he would do something so stupid, he can face the criticism of the public.



    • Do whut?
      10:23 pm April 19, 2014 Permalink

      SocialMedia is Evil is an ironic name. If his decision wasn’t the public’s concern perhaps he shouldn’t have informed the public and subsequently allowed pictures to be taken and dispersed via social media. He invited the public into his world and thus has no complaint the public is now involved.

    Terrible Work…if you are going to do such a large tat with a guy know one will remember in 30 years..go ahead…we all know you are a dumbazz. But such amateur work surely means you will be regretting this move in barely another year or two.

    I’m totally shocked at the responses! Surely these are creepers from the city of the Little Brother. If one is inclined to get ink they certainly should get WTF they want. If it’s Willie, then GBB!!

    It’s more weird that he played KEYTAR in several bands throughout the 2000’s. And I’d bet you guys commenting on the tattoo work have zero tattoos. It looks good considering the outline isn’t even finished.

      A Bama fan shot and killed another Bama fan bc she didn’t think the victim was upset enough about the loss to Auburn. No tattoo will ever top that. Suck it!

    I just love all of these trashy ace tattoos. Now he needs some earrings, black framed glasses, and a gold tooth to fit in with all of the rest of you federal-aid qualifying degenerates.

    Don’t make dumb bets! Weird, but he gets points for following through. Would’ve made it smaller and maybe his silhouette dunking not his actual face.

    Too many broken hearts have fallen in the river
    Too many lonely souls have drifted out to sea,
    You lay your bets and then you pay the price
    The things we do for love, the things we do for love

    Communication is the problem to the answer
    You’ve got his number and your hand is on the cell phone
    The weather’s turned and all the lines are down
    The things we do for love, the things we do for love

    Like walking in the rain and the snow
    When there’s nowhere to go
    And you’re feelin’ like a part of you is dying (your fro)
    And you’re looking for the answer in tattoos
    You think you’re gonna break up
    Then he says she wants to make up

    Ooh, you made me love you
    Ooh, you’ve got a way
    Ooh, you had me crawling up like John Wall

    Like walking in the rain and the snow
    When there’s nowhere to go
    And you’re feelin’ like a part of you is dying (your fro)
    And you’re looking for the answer in tattoos
    You think you’re gonna break up
    Then he says she wants to make up

    Ooh, you made me love you
    Ooh, you’ve got a way
    Ooh, you had me crawling up like John Wall

    A compromise would surely help the situation
    Agree to disagree but disagree to part
    When after all it’s just a compromise of
    The things we do for love, the things we do for love
