As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words ... but we're totally speechless.
A few years ago, Tom Mitzner, a St. Louis native and lifelong Cardinals fan, was lucky enough to get signatures from Tony La Russa and Mark McGwire.
Mitzner wanted to savor them, we mean really savor them, so he decided to head right to the tattoo parlor to get them permanently inked on his arm.
Oh, but this masterpiece isn't done quite yet. He hopes to add Yadier Molina's John Hancock to his arm-y of signatures as well.
Mitzner brings a whole new meaning to self-portrait.
