Morian decided to call the Dave and Chuck The Freak Show, which airs on 101 WRIF in Detroit, where he had first heard the Seattle tattoo story. The show’s producer, James Campbell, contacted John Motyka of Elite Ink. Soon after they arranged tattoo artist Rick Finney, of Elite Ink to perform the tattoo.
“Today being Friday the 13th, it’s a full moon, it just worked out,” Campbell said. “Maybe the tattoo will become a prophecy.”
So Morian woke up, put on his favorite Calvin Johnson jersey and drove to Elite Ink in Centerline. The tattoo reads “Super Bowl 2015 Champs,” and is inked permanently onto his lower left leg. The words go above and below a Lombardi Trophy and a Lions logo.
This morning he, quite literally, bled Honolulu blue.
“I saw that out in Seattle and I thought it was pretty neat,” Morian said Friday afternoon, his new ink still fresh after spending just over an hour in the chair. “I love the Lions; I always have. So I figured why not see if it will turn things around.
“Mentally, maybe it will get everybody together. I don’t know. I didn’t really think it was going to be as big as it seems to be now.”
Morian’s childhood home was less than 10 miles from Ford Field, although he’s never been able to go to a game. Instead, Morian, 23, grew up watching games with his father in Hazel Park.
“My Dad watched them all the time growing up. We would always watched them on Thanksgiving,” said Morian, who is considering the possibility of getting the tattoo altered annually with a new year until it happens. “Everybody loves the Lions and then everybody hates the Lions.
“It’s mixed emotions for everybody, but I’ve always loved them.”
There will no mixed emotions in the streets of Detroit should the Lions — who have never even been to the Super Bowl — win it all in 2015.
“Obviously the tattoo won’t totally be responsible,” Campbell said. “But if the Lions do well and they make it to the Super Bowl, this could be what caused it. Or it could just be a guy who’s got a Super Bowl tattoo on his leg for the Lions that never really sees fruition.”Read More

Check out the following article pertaining to tattoo removal:
From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20140119/METRO01/301190012#ixzz2qxNMhVYD
One option that many people turn to instead of complete removal is fading the tattoo to the point where it can be covered up by a different design, said tattooist John Motyka, owner and operator of Elite Ink Tattoo Studios, which has tattoo parlors in Warren, Center Line and Dearborn Heights.
“Before getting a tattoo, the person should consult with the tattooist and see if they are capable of taking on the project and if it’s what they really want,” he said.
In his 22 years in the business, Motyka says he has seen a definite shift in attitudes toward tattooing.
“More than ever, it is a form of self-expression,” he said. “When I started in this business in the early ’90s, it was considered a form of adult entertainment. Now tattooing is a legitimate industry.”
As for undoing the ink, the best thing to do, says Motyka, is go into it accepting that it is forever and plan ahead.
“In my opinion, removal is not an option if you are putting a tattoo on your body,” said Motyka. “As long as people take the impulse nature out of getting a tattoo and do their homework, more often than not, there’s less chance of buyer’s remorse.”Read More
