Of the Birdman's 300-plus tats, the "Free Bird" on his neck is by far the most eye-catching. He got it in 2009 and it took about 10 to 12 hours to complete. And if he weren't Birdman, it would've cost a couple thousand dollars, his tattoo artist said. What's the story behind it? Well, he was going through a suspension and a breakup, plus he's a fan of the Lynyrd Skynyrd song.


Get the rest of the story behind Birdman's ink

This diehard Bills fan had more than one reason for getting O.J. Simpson's mug shot tatted on his leg. He's also obsessed with the '90s, and considers 1994 (the year of the Simpson trial) to be one of the biggest years. "I've gotten a lot of good comments in the Buffalo area from Bills fans," LaBarron told The Buffalo News. "I've seen a lot of the posts online about it, and they're not-so-nice. I understand why some people don't like it, but I don't really care."
