Dodgers: Julio Urias’ dad gets beastly World Series tattoo to celebrate his son
If there’s any way to truly celebrate a World Series victory, it’s covering your body with the moment in permanent ink. And that’s what Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias‘ father recently did.
As LA fans vividly remember, Urias, the young left-hander, came out of the bullpen and recorded the final out of the Fall Classic against the Tampa Bay Rays this past October and the iconic snapshot of him celebrating on the mound by himself for that brief moment officially ended the team’s 32-year title drought.
The 24-year-old had appeared in just 74 regular season games before making his mark on Dodgers history, and his father recently decided to get some artwork of Urias bringing home a championship to Los Angeles.
Check out this awesome tattoo posted by Ortega_Ink on Instagram. That’s Urias’ dad’s arm, fully covered from shoulder to elbow.
That’s some commitment from pops. Julio’s inked up all over so he definitely had to convince his dad to get something, and what better than a snapshot of your son reaching the pinnacle of the sport at just 24 years of age?
Andres Ortega Rojas, the tattoo artist, told TMZ that it took nine hours to complete and confirmed it was Mr. Urias’ first tattoo ever. He must be one tough dude if he was able to endure the pain for that long having never been anywhere close to a needle like that.
On the left side of the trophy you can see Julio’s autograph with his No. 7 underneath, too.
The 2020 season sure was an epic ride for the Dodgers and the Urias family and it’ll be one they never forget. But with such a bright future ahead of Julio, maybe Mr. Urias should have went a little bit smaller with his first tat.
What happens when Julio appears in his first All-Star Game? Wins his first Cy Young? Wins the World Series MVP? Alright, we’ll take it one achievement at a time.
After all, he’ll have his entire back to cover if need be.
