Seahawks fan tattoos team logo on her head, but still no free tickets -- yet

Maybe we should call McKenzie Jane Brown the "13th Woman."
The Kennewick, Wash., hairstylist isn't shy about showing her support for her beloved Seattle Seahawks, and recently she made it permanent by getting a tattoo of the team's 12th Man logo etched onto the left side of her head.
According to Washington state's Tri-City Herald, the already heavily tattooed Brown has been a Seahawks fan since she was young, but has never been to a game in person. She heard about a radio station contest -- courtesy of 98.3 The Key -- that was offering two tickets to Seattle's divisional playoff game vs. the New Orleans Saints to the fan who had the best Seahawks-themed photo.
"I always wanted to have a Seahawks tattoo, but I didn't want a logo to interrupt the other tattoos," she told the Herald. "That's why I felt the head would be perfect."
So Brown shaved the left side of her head and let her tattoo-artist husband do the honors.
Unfortunately for Brown, she came in second place, behind another Seattle fan who dressed up as a Seahawks-themed Batman, the newspaper reported. We don't have photos of that guy, but it had better have been one darn good costume.
"I came in second, but nothing else changed," Brown told the Herald. "I may have a little bit of an itchy head, but I'm still loud and proud."
And her fight may not yet be over, either. A video on YouTube, purportedly from one of Brown's friends, documents the painstaking steps Brown went through on behalf of her team, and it claims Brown is willing to go even further if it means she could get Super Bowl tickets.
"She's willing to shave the other side of her head and get an 'Ellen' tattoo on the side of her head," the friend in the video says:
Nominating your friend for a trip to the Super Bowl as one of the Seahawks' biggest fans? That's a cool move ... even if it condemns that friend to another painful stint in the tattoo parlor.
