PHOTOS: Rickie Fowler's new tattoo among our favorites in golf

By

You may have noticed Rickie Fowler’s new ink.

The Olympian’s right arm now bears the Olympic rings, a Twitter photo by U.S. Olympic diver Sam Dorman revealed Thursday, about a month after Fowler represented the U.S. in Rio de Janeiro.

So Fowler’s latest tattoo got us thinking: what are some of our other favorite tattoos in golf? Here’s a look at a few of them, including Fowler’s tattoo from last year:

• • •

Rickie Fowler

Rickie’s other tattoo makes this list. Fowler revealed the tattoo – which is his grandfather’s name, Yutaka Tanaka, written in Japanese – on his Instagram account last January.

Lydia Ko

Ko’s tattoo on her right wrist commemorates her first win as a professional, at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic, with the date – April 27, 2014 – in roman numerals.

Bubba Watson

Watson’s tattoo says, simply, “Angie,” and he got it to celebrate he and his wife’s 10-year wedding anniversary.

Carly Booth

OK, so we might not have known about this one if Booth hadn’t posed in ESPN’s Body Issue. So what’s the ink of? It’s a Shakespeare quote.

Mel Reid

Reid has her parents’ birthdates tattooed on her left arm. Reid’s mother died in 2012 from injuries sustained in a car crash near Munich, Germany.

Seve Ballesteros

This might be our favorite. The late Ballesteros won the 1984 British Open, then decided he wanted that image permanently inked on his left arm.
