Fan turns Odell Beckham Jr. autograph into a tattoo
Odell Beckham Jr. has already made quite an impression on the Cleveland Browns. So much so, in fact, that one die-hard Browns now has the superstar wide receiver’s signature indelibly marked on his body.
Following Cleveland’s victory over the New York Jets on Monday night, Beckham signed autographs for fans who waited to greet him at FirstEnergy Stadium. One especially excitable member of the Browns faithful, Twitter user Eli_TooNice7, not only had Beckham sign his forearm, but later had a tattoo artist outline the signature for a piece of memorabilia he’ll literally never be without.
This fan got an autograph from @obj and decided to keep it forever … as a tattoo 😳

Eli’s decision is understandable considering how Beckham played against the Jets. The four-time Pro Bowler was the best player on the field in the Browns’ 23-3 victory, catching six passes for 161 yards and a touchdown. His most impressive play wasn’t even his 89-yard catch and run, either. Beckham also put his ridiculously soft touch on display in one-handed fashion yet again, catching a pass from Baker Mayfield with one hand despite being under heavy coverage while running down the sideline.
Beckham was traded from the New York Giants to Cleveland in March in exchange for safety Jabrill Peppers and first and third-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. Though the offseason was fraught with speculation about his commitment to his new team, Beckham’s play on Monday was a forceful reminder of just how dynamic he can be when playing at his best – and how the impact he’s capable of making is worth the distractions that accompany his crossover star appeal.
