Benjamin Christensen might be an Oakland A's fan, but he has every MLB team covered, with the American League on the right side of his torso and the National League on the left. But the designs for many of them are more intricate than you think:

The Pirate Parrot has red eyes as a tribute to Dock Ellis's no-hitter on acid, plus the fact that the person who once was the mascot had a role in the 1980s MLB drug trials.

The handle on the bat of the Baltimore Bird is emblazoned with the words "Fuck Face" as an homage to Billy Ripken's notorious baseball card.


Wally the Green Monster has a grounder going through his legs.

And so on. You can view more details about the tattoos on Christensen's blog here.
