Whether you’re looking for Bills-related ink or not, we strongly encourage you to support a member of the #FAMbase when considering your next tattoo!

Once you get inked, send us a pic and we’ll put it in a photo gallery to commemorate the pact!


Ok so what started as a joke between @JMetzelaars and me has become a real thing.

After hearing that Mark Anderson was in town at Tempo with Bills brass on Tuesday night, I impulsively tweeted this out:

…to which Jonathon replied:

We both agreed and then BOOM, this comes across my timeline:

And just like that, it got real.

@CALLYLICOUS showing us how it's done.

So here’s the deal, I created a Twitter list and we’re up to 62 people as of the time I’m writing this who are down to get inked. Here’s the parameters we’ve come up with:

  • WHEN the Bills win the AFC East, you’re getting inked. Or, you can say “make the playoffs,” or when they make their first first down of the year, or you can go get it tomorrow. Whatever you want. I guess the division clinch is the last threshold you would wait on.
  • Any design you want but it would have to be Bills-related obviously, duh. Bonus points and neverending respect if you actually get the #BillsMafia hashtag or term “Bills Mafia” placed upon your body forever.
  • You’re paying for it. Again: obviously, duh.

You want in on this? Send me a tweet¬†or an email and I’ll put you on that Twitter list.

Questions? Leave a comment below. And no, I’m not really going to make my tattoo be a portrait of Buddy.

At least not until after I see how the draft goes.

About Del Reid

Del Reid became a Bills fan shortly after coming into this world, having been raised in a home that actually had a framed picture of OJ Simpson on the wall in the living room (until it came down in 1994). Del has always had a passion for bringing people together to celebrate things they share in common. As a result, he (quite accidentally) ended up co-founding the #BillsMafia movement among Bills fans in social media -- which to this point is the coolest thing that has ever happened to him aside from his relationship with God, his wife, and his two awesome kids. Follow him on Twitter at @mrdeadlier.
