PHOTO: Ernie Els autographs fan’s massive tattoo of him

What do you do when someone tells you they have a tattoo of you, when they've permanently inked your likeness on their body? Ernie Els decided he would add his signature to the tattoo.

On Wednesday at the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills near Denver, a fan presented himself to Els, showing off a massive tattoo of the Big Easy on his leg. Els' teacher, Claude Harmon III, captured the four-time major winner's reaction: autographing the man's leg near the tattoo.

Oh, you say, that John Hancock won't be permanent. Actually, it will be. Harmon told SB Nation via Twitter that the fan intends to have the autograph turned into a tattoo exactly where Els signed it.
