Hanley Ramirez got a new tattoo during the All-Star break too

I posted this morning about the matching “Mom” and “Pops” tattoos Bryce Harper got on his wrists, but he wasn’t the only player to spend the All-Star break getting inked up.

Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who failed to make the All-Star team for the first time since 2007, got a similar-looking tattoo on his forearm, except his says simply “Hailey” (which is his daughter’s name, says Google).

At first glance I actually thought it said “Hanley” and I had this whole snarky paragraph about how that could come in handy, but then … well, turns out I just don’t read cursive tattoos all that well. They didn’t cover that–or really anything regarding blog posts about tattoos–in journalism school, although admittedly I never did take the high-level reporting classes.

    Nice understated narcissism

      —Facepalm—

      Dammit…I’ll blame that fail on the glare, but I’ll also go get my eyes checked—and never take Aaron at his word again. Bad, bad, bad, warm ketchup eating Aaron!!!!!

    Doesn’t that say “Hailey”?!

      Now that you say that… It just might. Let’s hope it does for Hanley’s sake.

    Apparently he went with his own name because the tattoo artist couldn’t spell douch.

      You might wanna use spell-check, champ.

        RK knows this because he was the tattoo artist.

    Looks like ‘Hailey’ to me. Maybe he picked it off the ‘Eminem’ section on the artist’s wall. Hopefully he doesn’t start squalking about his terrible mom and his ex-wife. It would be a shame if he turned off the Marlins’ fan.

      Just saw your update: Oops.

      Though one could argue that naming your child after yourself is even more narcissistic than getting your name tattooed on your forearm.

    Ironic typo brought to you by Swype

    Does he have a problem remembering his daughters name or something?

      You know what’s next? Ozzie (about whom we have heard nary a peep all through the Yawn Star Break, thank Buddha) gets himself covered with Voodoo veves and Hideki Matsui gets the full-body Yakuza treatment before starring in Takeshi Miike’s remake of The Pillow Book.

    Looks like Hanley’s not worried about his disasterous season. There a some good discussion on Hanley’s 2nd half value at RotoKnow.com. Head over and chime in!

    Brandon Inge had his kids tatooed on his forearms in similar fashion. Now, his kids have to wear the shame of being reminded the guy hitting .180 is actually their father…

      If that idiot had his kids tattooed, at least his batting average is more than twice his IQ.

    I think tattooing is idiotic anyway. So is body piercing. I keep wondering what kind of social or aesthetic statement people think they’re making by mutilating themselves. Peer pressure is a horrible thing.

    • Utley's Hair - Jul 14, 2011 at 11:24 AM

      You’re only saying that because your thick, scaly skin doesn’t allow needles to pierce it.

      • Old Gator - Jul 14, 2011 at 11:51 AM

        Except (sigh) the top of my head. I’ve often thought of tattooing a bullseye on it so that the gulls have a working target for dropping their clams.
