Wilfredo Bueiz wasn't worried when the new Miami Dolphins logo got leaked.
It just meant he was getting his new tattoo a little sooner than expected.
"I wanted to be the first one," says Bueiz, a Miami Dolphins season ticketholder since 2008. "I actually had the appointment with the tattoo artist the very next day it was going to be released. Then all of the sudden it got leaked."
Bueiz already has a tattoo of the old Dolphins logo on his right forearm. Figuring his old "TD the Dolphin" would be outdated by late April, he made a quick phone call to Fins season ticket representative DeAndra Paul, who made a subtle suggestion.
"I just threw it out there: 'Why don't you get the new logo tattooed?" said Paul. "He just ran with it."
Bueiz's new ink made its grand unveiling at the Tattoo & Company parlor – inked on his left forearm – and he was thrilled with the result.
"It's going to be the throwback, and the new one. Out with the old, in with the new," he said. "And this one we'll win Super Bowls this time."
The tattoo was performed by Tania Rivera, a.k.a "Vicious T," at Tattoo & Company, which is located at 9550 SW 40th St.
