Drew Brees called Brian Henry “one of the most loyal members of the Who Dat Nation I’ve ever met.”

That may be an understatement.

While other superfans can take off their costumes and makeup between games, Henry lives with the symbols of his devotion all day, everyday.

Over the past dozen years, Henry has collected 64 Saints autographs, which he’s had tattooed across his back. Permanently. In the flesh.



Henry asks players to sign his skin with a Sharpie marker, then dashes as quickly as possible to his personal tattooist, Dominic Sgro at Catahoula Tattoo, who converts the signature into a scrupulously accurate tattoo.

In time, his back has become like the bottom of the U.S. Constitution, a selection of important though largely illegible scribbles. He wears a custom-made jersey with a transparent back made from a clear shower curtain, to let his collection shine through. He calls himself the “Signature Saint.”



Henry, 38, said he grew up on the West Bank and moved to Metairie when he got married four years ago. He began collecting Saints autograph tattoos because of a burglary that took place nine years ago.

You got them lasting until 2040? That might be generous.

That's pretty cool, even though I generally dislike tats.

Does he have any of players before the Payton era? I'd imagine Rickey Jackson, Morten Anderson, Vaughan Johnson, Eric Martin, Dalton Hilliard, La'Roi Glover, Wayne Martin, Joe Horn and Deuce McAllister are on there somewhere.

Tattoos used to mean you were a bad ass mofo not to be F’d with. Pretty much exclusively worn by sailors and bikers who would just as soon rip your head off and **** down your throat than look at you. Now all it means is that you’re a cook who can make a lovely pork belly with pomegranate drizzle.
