Race to Derby Lane, St. Petersburg, FL
It sits there silently as you drive past, on the edge of Tampa Bay.

This is without a doubt, the most dedicated Tampa Bays fan ever. Passed by this lady at a Walgreens and saw this tattoo out of the corner of my eye. I had to turn around stop her and asked her if I could take a look at it. Then I asked her if I could take a picture. It features (from the top down) the sun and the moon over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the Tampa Bay Rays logo (from the Devil Rays days), a baseball, the Tampa Bay Bucs logo, the Tampa Bay Lightning logo (with a goalie mask), and the inscription “Believe” with the “B” made from a heart.
