A fan of the Argentine soccer team River Plate had an idea for a tattoo. Just like every tattoo, it began as what seemed like a great idea that ended up being terrible.
What kind of tattoo would a true River Plate fan get? Their favorite player? The jersey number of a River Plate legend? The RP crest? Nope. This super fan got a QR code linked to a highlight video of his favorite team’s goals over their rival, Boca Juniors.
Legendary. Well, at least at the beginning. Since the tattoo was linked to a Youtube video, it was only a matter of time before the inevitable happened. Surely enough, the video was taken down due to copyright issues. The tattoo that once actually had a meaning to it, is now just a square occupied by a bunch of smaller squares.
Now, there could be a bigger conspiracy going on. As the tattoo made national headlines, the news had to have fallen on the ears of rival fans. If you thought the NBA was petty, you have seen nothing yet. The pettiness of soccer fans is unmatched. I’m sure fans of some other Argentine club saw the tattoo and decided it was time to ruin it all while giving him a giant middle finger to the face.
