This Michael Phelps Fan Actually Got #PhelpsFace Tattooed On His Leg!

no title

Well, that didn’t take long!

Michael Phelps has been making headlines all week for kicking some serious ass in the Olympics, but one of our favorite things to go viral from the 2016 Games was his death stare Monday night!

The swimming star was sporting the most intense game face EVER as rival Chad le Clos was warming up in front of him!

And we aren’t the only ones who loved #PhelpsFace!

The owner of Canadian tattoo parlor Chronic Ink enjoyed the viral sensation so much that he got Michael’s mean mug inked on his leg FOREVER!

The acclaimed athlete’s fan, whose name is Ricky, got the glorious glare permanently tattooed on his leg this week by employee Livia Tsang, who also documented it on Instagram and Snapchat.

The blue-haired beauty confirmed to Buzzfeed News that the tat is the real deal, and explained her boss wanted #PhelpsFace on his body because of the medalist’s perseverance and determination.

And, also because it’s going to be part of a bigger piece:

“Those are elements that he really respects about him. We’re planning on doing more portraits of star athletes on his leg and we figured Phelps would be a good one to add.”

Livia admitted that she had a feeling it would go viral, adding:

“We knew what we were getting into when we did the tattoo and when we put it online.”

Totally fair, especially considering Miz Tsang is the same artist who gifted Shawn Mendes with his very first tattoo!

Another masterpiece well done!
