Kentucky Fan With "2014 National Champions" Tattoo Will Not Get It Removed

Despite a miraculous run through this year's NCAA Tournament, Kentucky did not win the national championship. But that doesn't mean that Tyler Austin Black will be getting his tattoo, which claims otherwise, removed. Black told ESPN's Darren Rovell after last night's title game, won by UConn, that he will be keeping the ink in commemoration.

Just spoke to @tizzblack, who has this tattoo. He isn't changing it all.

Black and his tattoo made headlines across the country as Kentucky moved further and further into the tournament. And sure, his tattoo will always read inaccurate, but this team accomplished way more than anyone believed it could heading into the tournament. Truth be told, I'd probably keep it too.
