Worst Sports Tattoos — New York Islanders Pooh Bear
Once a hockey juggernaut that won four consecutive Stanley Cups, the New York Islanders have been relegated to also-ran status in the NHL. This bad tattoo of the Islanders’ logo on Winnie the Pooh’s stomach isn’t helping the team recapture its lost glory or toughness.
Hockey is a violent sport. Players lose teeth, get stitches and are sent to the penalty box for things like ‘slashing.’ They do not get flustered trying to get into a jar of honey. Why not get a fierce tattoo of Pooh boarding Care Bear or pummeling him into a multicolored puddle?
If any A.A. Milne character echoes back to the days when NHL players downed a fistful of greenies and roamed the ice with blood lust, it’s Tigger. The artwork on this tattoo isn’t bad at all, but the concept is awful.
