After the Super Bowl parade the city collectively feels … hungover.

The past week of shenanigans is catching up to us. But it’s OK, because we’ve had our fair share of (deserved) fun.

Maybe too much fun.

Fans across the city have been tweeting out photos of their #BirdGang badges of honor—large, small, colorful, hidden in creative places and inventive Eagles tattoos to remember their historic win.

We figured it was only a matter of time, but fans were quick to get their local tattoo artists to work. It’s likely even more will get Eagles tattoos this weekend during the 20th Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention.

The tattoos are everything you would expect them to be: the good, the bad and possibly the regrettable.

But for dedicated fans, their new ink is just a reminder of that enduring Underdog Pride.

We’ve chosen a sampling here for you. Maybe one will serve as inspiration for your own.

Enjoy.
