Steelers fan gets JuJu Smith-Schuster autograph tattooed on his head for season tickets
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster has a strong personality. It shines through quite often and has made him a fan favorite in Pittsburgh. Now he’s adding another quirky reason to the list of why fans love him so much.
Smith-Schuster autographed a fans head. Then he told the fan he’d give him season tickets if he got the signature tattooed onto his body. The fan did exactly that – and now Smith-Schuster is sticking to his word.
Yup, I got him, he’s got season tickets now. Respect!! 🤝 https://t.co/67KIpFkdau

This definitely has to be up there with the weirdest ways to get season tickets. It’s also something that makes you thankful for social media.
If this ever happened prior to social media, we wouldn’t have heard about it as much. The guy’s friends definitely never would’ve believed the story either. He’d be telling anyone who’d listen and they’d just laugh at him.
Now he’s got definitive proof though and Smith-Schuster definitely has a fan for life.
The question now is probably, how many people are going to try similar things? The wide receiver will definitely be hounded for season tickets by fans offering up other crazy exchanges. Meanwhile, other teams will have fans looking for tattoo-for-ticket trades all training camp.
Let’s all remember though that players are people too. Harassing them and asking for favors isn’t the way to treat them. This is a special case because based on how the tweet goes, it sounds like Smith-Schuster offered up the tickets, and wasn’t asked about it.
Juju Smith-Schuster is one-of-a-kind. He’s a stud on the field and a fan favorite off it. His personality shines through often and the Pittsburgh Steeler and the NFL are better off for it.
