Rick Pitino Gets His Tattoo
Rick Pitino Gets His Tattoo

After his team fell to a pedestrian 7-4 in the Big East with a five-overtime loss to Notre Dame in mid-February, Louisville coach Rick Pitino boosted the Cardinals’ spirits by promising to get a tattoo if they won the national championship.

A closer look at Rick Pitino’s tattoo (via Kenny Klein)They held up their end earlier this month, so now Pitino has as well.

Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein tweeted the above photos early Friday morning of a shirtless Pitino showing off his fresh ink. The tattoo beneath his left shoulder features a Louisville script “L” logo adorned with the words “2013 NCAA Champions 35-5″

Credit Pitino for not only following through on his promise quickly but also not wimping out with a barely visible tattoo. That “L” takes up prime real estate on his back and appears to be about the size of a wallet.

The only remaining question now is what Pitino will do if the Cards go back-to-back, a real possibility with leading scorer Russ Smith announcing Thursday that he is coming back for his senior season. At this point, anything from a matching tattoo to an eyebrow piercing seems like a real possibility.
