Each year the Super Bowl marks a momentous occasion that kicks off the New Year with its first major televised event. Even people who aren’t American Football fans tune in to see the lavish halftime festivities and the famed Super Bowl commercials that cost companies millions of dollars. This year was Superbowl L, aka 50, which marked the fiftieth year of the premiere NFL Championship game.
On Sunday night, February 7th, the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Denver Broncos faced the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Carolina Panthers in an American Football game that would decide the National Football League’s reigning #1 champion for the next year. The game was broadcast on CBS in the U.S. and featured a halftime show headlined by Coldplay with special guests Beyoncé and Bruno Mars, both of which had been massive hits in past Super Bowl halftime shows.
American Football fans immensely passionate about their favorite teams, making it a fairly common sight for many to sport tattoos of their team’s mascot or logo. In honor of Super Bowl 50, we’ve put together a tattoo gallery that showcases some of the commemorative tattoos fans got for this year’s championship game, and even threw in a couple throwback tattoos from previous Super Bowls too.
Super Bowl 50 turned out to be the third most-watched television program in history, amassing 111.9 million viewers. The average cost for a 30-second commercial during the game was around $5 million dollars.
In case you missed the game, the Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 to achieve their 3rd franchise Super Bowl victory. Being the championship’s “golden anniversary”, a lot of the promotional material for Super Bowl 50 was strewn in gold, so don’t be surprised if you start seeing an increase in golden NFL tattoos, especially by fans of the Broncos.
