Who is this Bills fan with the O.J. Simpson mug-shot tattoo?

By Tim Graham

Perhaps it's a reminder about the virtues of turning the other cheek.

Deadspin has shared a Buffalo Bills fan's fascinating tattoo: O.J. Simpson's 1994 mug shot. Large. On the guy's left thigh and rump.

The tattoo is stunning not only in its placement, but also in its sharpness. The tattoo artist is a talented fella. The job took nine hours, according to a vague report on, the site that first posted the photo.

So who is this man? I want to find him -- and the artist.

We're assuming the man with the tattoo is a Bills fan because he also sports a standing red buffalo on his left ankle. We also can assume he's in the restaurant business, given the box of chunk pineapple and bulk egg cartons at his feet.

And I'm pretty sure we can assume this dude has a fantastic sense of humor -- or lost a bet.
