Dog lovers will appreciate this … Catch New York Mets Tomas nido just showed great love to her adorable puppy – by having the dog tattooed on her leg!
TMZ Sports learned that the baseball player wanted to get ink to celebrate his beloved pet last week… so he hit the performer Keith hernandez of Bang Bang Tattoo in New York.
We’re told the 27-year-old handed over a portrait of his Yorkie, Louie, which he had 8 years ago … and Hernandez then went to work.
The artist took a few hours to make the piece … and it all ended up being pretty amazing !!
Check out the details … Louie’s design – which will now stay inside Nido’s shin forever – looks SUPER real, right down to the fluffy hair and little doggy outfit.
We are told that Nido got another tattoo while he was in the store… getting the letter “E” inked behind his ear – a shout out to his 8 month old daughter, Eleni.
In total, Nido ended up sitting in the chair for about 3-4 hours… and we’re told he plans to return to the store in the near future to do more ink.
In the meantime … will you be able to spot Louie on Nido during the next Mets game broadcast?
Our sincere thanks to
