From Autograph Tattoos to Sports Team Cemeteries

 - Mar 2, 2009
It isn’t hard to spot an obsessive fan. Indeed, we’ve collected 25 different types of obsessive fans in this slideshow alone. There are fans who have their idols’ faces, signatures and artwork inked on their bodies. Others pledge allegiance to the religion of football and swear to have their bodies interred in cemeteries geared towards sports teams.

While most of the obsessive fan behavior we document in this cluster involves those with an affinity for tattoos, there are plenty of other ways their devotion is manifested that are every bit as permanent.
