Tucsonan responds to comments on his tattoo that went viral

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson man has become Internet famous for what some people call his Super Bowl tattoo "fail." The night before the big game, he got ink proclaiming the Denver Broncos the champs.

Christopher Kingman stands by his tattoo and doesn't mind the negative attention he's getting online.

"It actually became an idea a week and a half before that, and I was talking to my best friend about it and he was trying to talk me out of it," he said.

But Kingman went ahead with the idea anyway.

"It came out great!" he said.

Sacred Art Tattoo artist Jibo Barrow was a little weary about doing the tattoo.

"I kind of laughed at him and I said something like, well you know Seattle's going to win. He said I want it anyway," said Barrow.

He said he did everything he could to try to give Kingman and out.

"I said ‘Okay, do you want to leave the Champs off?'" he said.

Flash forward to game night. Kingman held onto hope the Broncos would make a comeback in the second half against the Seattle Seahawks. He said they never showed up to the game.

"Okay, I think this is over and I think there's going to be some backlash on this," Kingman said.

Photos of him and his tattoo went viral. It got picked up by several media outlets across the country. Some comments were positive, but others weren't so nice.

"You know if they make the Super Bowl next year, I told them I'm going to do it again. You got to have faith in something and I just believe in my team," he said.
