Bruins fan gets dumb Shawn Thornton-P.K. Subban tattoo

- June 19th, 2014

This might be the worst hockey tattoo ever. At the very least, it wasn’t well thought out.

For some reason, a Boston Bruins fan got a tattoo commemorating Shawn Thornton spraying Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban with water from the bench during the playoffs this spring. It was designed by Charlie Robbins of Sacred Addition Tattoo.

Let’s recap why this was a bad idea.

1. Thornton’s actions were widely criticized as unsportsmanlike, something the NHL agreed with in handing him a fine.

2. Boston lost the series. Not something worth remembering.

3. The Bruins will not re-sign Thornton. His career in Boston is over.

4. An old-school Jofa helmet? Really?

Remember kids, tattoos of insignificant and forgettable sports moments last forever!

    1) did we expect classyness from Thornton?
    2) did we expect some from his fans? Or the teams fans?
    3) Boston’s loss is always worth remembering, especially at the hands of the Habs
    4) the old jofa helmet shows just how ignorant a fan this came from.
    5) what’s up with the #6 on the Subban helmet? Why is it so deformed as to look like a bent 0, or a really ugly B

    I think we could say for sure that stupid is what stupid does.

    What a nut case, he now has a habs logo 4 times the size of the bruins logo on his leg…permanently. Maybe on the other leg he could get a tattoo of Lafleur shooting the puck past Cheevers that was a pretty memorable moment in Boston history too.

    why is this even a news story? Plenty of other stupid tatoos around. But I guess anyway to paint all Bruins fans the same I guess. I do get a kick out of people calling Thornton classless while being alright with the diving tactics of the Habs. The tactics that the refs tired of in round three and cost Montreal the series

    Knew Thornton was gone when he pulled that; especially when the cameras caught him laughing about it on the bench – you don’t pull stunts like that under Chiarelli and stey a Bruin – who’s laughing now Shaun!

    That has to be the worst tattoo I’ve ever seen!

    If the guy is a Bruins fan, why is the Habs logo bigger?!? He has a HUGEEE Habs logo on his arm for ever! LOL!

    And really what is with the jofa helmet & the awful deformed #6! Also nice finger nails on Thornton…looks like a lady’s hand!

    Omg this guy probably already regrets this monstrosity.
