Kansas City Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes proved once again to be a great representative of the NFL when he made one fan’s day after signing his “champ stamp” tattoo.
It all went down during the 23-year-old quarterback’s appearance Monday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The host had asked Mahomes about living in Kansas City and the athlete noticed one fan in the audience in the front row wearing a Chiefs jersey, per the Kansas City Star in a piece published Tuesday.

“So, you’re living in Kansas City now. Do you love Kansas City?” Kimmel inquired.
“I love it. I honestly do, look, we’ve got Chiefs Kingdom right here,” the Chiefs QB shared, noting two men in the front row rocking Mahomes’ number. (RELATED: Patriots Beat The Rams In The Super Bowl)
Kimmel then talked about the fan in the red shirt and the “tid bit” he learned about him, before asking the audience member to stand up and raise his shirt, revealing a huge Mahomes tattoo with the words “Champ Stamp” on the fan’s lower back.

“Now, this is the kind of loyalty that you’ve already inspired there,” Kimmel explained.
Mahomes laughed and told the guy that his tattoo was “awesome. That is awesome.”
The fan, who identified himself from Raytown, Missouri, then shared what led to him getting the stamp in the Chief’s honor and shared that the tattoo wouldn’t be complete until it got signed by the all-star player.
