Chuck Solomon is undoubtedly the Philadelphia Eagles' #1 fan. Better known as “Tat Man,” Solomon has more than 100 tattoos dedicated to the team. He’s so devoted to the Bird Gang, that not only has he “never missed a home game,” his Eagles tattoo collection includes portraits of players and former coaches.
So, naturally, Tat Man celebrated the Eagles winning their first Super Bowl in franchise history, by getting two large Super Bowl LII logo tattoos. One for each side of his head.
Tat Man also received his very own Super Bowl ring, which includes his nickname.
He captioned the pictures of his head tattoos that he posted across social media: “This is step one of a long full head tattoo. I’m doing the super Bowl helmet and this is the way it looks. There’s a lot more to go.”
At 6ft and 305 lbs, Solomon wears a customized Eagles jersey to every game, and while it has the original shoulders of the jersey, the torso is made of clear plastic, to display his collection.
The 48-year-old has a construction business and works outside, and is used to showing a little skin.
“My game day outfit is a pair of flip flops, shorts and my see-through jersey. No matter where we’re at, that’s what I wear,’’ Solomon said.
Across his stomach, the Eagles fanatic sports the Eagles’ former home, Veterans Stadium, being imploded. On his lower back he has a tattoo of the new stadium, Lincoln Financial Field.
“Tat Man” has assorted autographs of former Eagles players, including linebacker Bill Bergey and Chuck Bednarik, inked.
“They actually sign my body, and then we ink them right in,” said Solomon.
His tattoo collection also include portraits of such former Eagles as Kevin Kolb and Mike Quick.
On his calves, he has tattooed portraits of former coaches Andy Reid, Buddy Ryan and the late Bill Johnson.
“I’ve never missed a home game,” Solomon said, wearing green and white face paint and a faux fur headpiece.
