The tattoo is considered by many to be one of the most significant personal forms of expression, tribute and dedication in modern culture. For thousands of years, humans have been permanently inking themselves with personal and unique markings, and Capitals fans are no different. Here are just a few examples of Caps fans and their dedicated artwork.

Former Washington Capitals’ centerman Kevin “Killer” Kaminski created a full “sleeve” tattoo which he dedicated to each of the teams he fought and gave blood for. The artwork includes two prominent Capitals logos. We asked Kevin if he had any cool pics of his sleeve tattoo and he said “hold on a second”:

We love Kevin’s dedication. Thanks for sharing your ink, Killer!

Former Capitals’ players are not the only ones permanently showing their support for the Caps. Fans are also doing the same. Here are a few pics :

    Haha so the front picture is my knee-Caps. I always said I would never get a sports team tattoo unless it was something really original and not just a logo. After a night out with some friends and a particularly good Capitals win, the idea of the knee-Caps ink was born. I have to explain it a lot, especially since I moved out to Oregon and there are like zero Capitals fans out here.
