Gary Gootman is an everyday American expect for the fact the he has a tattoo bodysuit dedicated to Boston!!

Gary Gootman is 41 years-old and the owner of an outdoor living business in Texas. At first glance he looks like an average American, only he has an awesome tattoo bodysuit with a large part of it inspired by Boston! Gootman's bodysuit pays tribute to the city of Boston and the famous sports teams that call it home. Certainly a one of a kind tattoo!

Born and raised in Brockton, Massachusetts, roughly 25 miles outside of Boston Gootman moved to Texas aged 20 when he got a job offer. Due to the high costs of moving and the cold winters back in Boston, Gootman has decided that Texas is now his home and is now admiring Boston from a distance, showing his Boston pride in ink. Gootman's tattoos are insane and totally awesome and you definitely feel that Boston love when looking at it.

“The back piece, I’ve got almost 150 hours on it. I met with my artist and wanted to do something a little different. He knows what I was into with the sports, so he kind of came up with this.”

“Lime green is my favorite color. I’ve got a motorcycle that’s lime green. I didn’t want to keep the sleeve skin-tone color like everyone does – I wanted to do something different – so I figured why not.”
