In the pantheon of bad tattoo ideas, there’s not much worse than getting the wrong Hebrew word inked onto your forearm or allowing 29 versions of Miley Cyrus to be imprinted permanently on your body.

But here’s something that might top them all. Getting a tattoo predicting that your favorite team will win the league championship only to watch as said team falls short of the goal, leaving you with the sports version of a Jeb neck tattoo.

That’s what happened to this poor dude who believed the Arizona Cardinals would win the Super Bowl next month.

After witnessing the Cardinals’ complete implosion vs. the Panthers in the NFC title game on Sunday night, the answer to that question is pretty clear: TOO SOON.

Of course, it’s too late now.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time a fan has been too early to the title-winning celebration. It happened last college basketball season with Kentucky. (Hint: The Wildcats did not win the NCAA tournament).

And it’s happened before with NFL teams (neither of these predictions, of course, came true either).

Those three tattoos seemingly could be covered up without too much difficulty. That might not be the case for the Cardinals fan unless he can get creative. The only solution: find a talented tattoo artist who can cover up the Cardinals logo and transform it into the face of Betty White.
