Fans pay homage to their teams in all sorts of ways, but I can't say I've ever seen such a large team tattoo. Joe Montana and Steve Young are included, as is current linebacker Patrick Willis.

Willis responded to the tweet with some thanks, and maybe a hint of reverence.
@OH_Kai_ wow! I can't say I have ever seen myself tatted on someone before. That's wild! Thanks

For that fan's sake, we really hope Willis never goes through an ugly breakup with the 49ers, because if that happened, the tattoo would go from being a tribute to a running joke among that man's friends.
