Few regions of the world wear their team colors as loud-and-proud as Boston’s own, and the Red Sox have long held a place of fierce pride and protectiveness among native Bostonians and outsiders alike.
Founded in 1901 and formerly boasting the legendary player Babe Ruth, the Boston Red Sox have scored monumental highs and devastating lows throughout their nearly 120 year run.
Many Red Sox fans aren’t content to show their pride in mere jerseys and baseball caps, but prefer to go deeper—skin-deep, in fact. The tattoo world is rich with various styles of Red Sox ink art, with each and every design personalized to suit the individual.
Red Sox fans aren’t just loyal to their team and one another; they are each their own man. From the number 9 (after Ted “Splendid Splinter” Williams’ retired jersey) to the world-famous Red Sox B, there is truly no limit to the ways in which a Red Sox fan can declare his team pride on his own terms, and thus in the true spirit of the flesh-and -blood Bostonian.
