KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In Kansas City, people are clearly passionate about Chiefs football, but one Kansas City man has taken his love of Big Red to the next level.
“To me, heâ€™s the greatest coach, so I had to have him,” Robert Gaskins explained while getting a tattoo of Andy Reid’s face on his leg at Limitless Tattoo in Midtown.
Gaskins has been a fan of sports his entire life and credits it with helping him through hard times.
“Greatest coach, greatest coach, I been a big fan of Andy Reid since he was in Philadelphia, and then when Kansas City got him, I was super excited about it,” he said.
Gaskins has a lot of ink, and his tattoos feature a lot of popular sports figures.
“Oh, I got a lot of people. I have Kevin Durant, Jean Claude Van Damme, George Brett, Travis Kelce, Floyd Maywehther, Mike Tyson, Joe Montana, Patrick Mahomes. Weâ€™re doin’ Andy Reid. I have the Honey Badger,” he said referring to Tyrann Mathieu’s nickname.
And Gaskins isn’t the only one getting a Chiefs-related tattoo. The owner of Limitless Tattoo, Jeremy Taylor, said since Patrick Mahomes came to Kansas City, Chiefs tattoos at his shop have increased by 75%.
“A lot of people that donâ€™t have a lot of tattoos, it’s because they canâ€™t think of something they want forever, but if theyâ€™re a fan of the Chiefs, theyâ€™re probably always gonna be,” he said.
