Many people have tried to tempt fate with tattoo's attempting to predict the future, one Dallas Cowboys fan already believes he knows the winner of this years Super Bowl and has it inked on his arm.
Having confidence in your team is one thing but going to the length of tattooing your body predicting the world championship is another, especially if the franchise you follow is not particularly a title contender.
There was a famous incident last season when a Seattle Seahawks fan believed so strongly in the unit built by Pete Carroll, that he proclaimed in ink that his team would be triumphant in Super Bowl XLVIII and when they succeeded, he was rewarded for his prediction.
For the few stories of when tattoo prediction become a reality, there are many more of failed tales which are now just an incorrect statements plastered on the bodies of fans.
It is a permanent mark of shame and can sometimes be a reminder as to how your beloved sports team don't quite reach your expectations.
In this particular case, a rather optimistic (or deluded) Cowboys fan has big expectations for Jerry Jones' team.
You can check out the process of designing this remarkable tattoo and actually having the words "World Champions - Cowboys" marked on his body here.
This fan has an optimistic view point that continues to deceive Cowboy fans at the beginning of every NFL campaign.
The last three seasons have been abysmal by the standards expected from Owner Jerry Jones, they have posted consecutive 8-8 seasons in the prior three years and have failed to reach the playoffs each time.
The timing of their collapse continues to astound Dallas too and unfortunately for the fans, the trend looks set to continue with the Cowboys not expected to be a contender this year, no matter how many tattoo's you tempt fate with.
