Karl Alzner’s tattoo (Video)

Almost two years ago, this note about Karl Alzer’s tattoo was nestled into a Bog post about the Caps defenseman going gluten-free.

Another Alzner note: he’s in the process of getting his first tattoo on his right arm. It depicts a nautical scene, including an old-school sailing ship and a water vista, as homage to his native Vancouver.

“People don’t really understand the vision,” Alzner said. No photos allowed until it’s finished.

I guess it’s finished, because Alzner revealed the tattoo in a series of tweets and a video over the weekend. No wonder it took him two years to finish.
