Countless fans have gotten Richard Petty’s autograph over the last six-plus decades.
But only one race car driver can now say he actually took The King’s signature and turned it into a tattoo.
That’s what Bubba Wallace did Monday, living up to his promise he made a little over two weeks ago that he’d get a tattoo of Petty’s signature after Petty surprised Wallace by putting his autograph on Bubba’s left forearm.
Now, it’s official: Bubba will forever and proudly have The King’s signature permanently emblazoned on the back of his upper right thigh.
Bubba live-streamed the inking and pain on Instagram.
There were also other tweets either by Wallace or about his eventful day, as well.
