Sean O’Malley gets a tattoo of himself on neck to celebrate jump-shot victory pose

Sean O’Malley celebrated a famous post-fight pose from one of his recent victories with a rather unique tattoo added to his body.

The UFC bantamweight prospect knocked out Thomas Almeida earlier this year and his post-fight pose was a jump shot like he just splashed a 3-pointer from the outside.

Now O’Malley has that same image tattooed on his neck after getting some new work done at California Dream Tattoo in Hollywood. The artist who did the work on O’Malley posted the images on his Instagram page.

This new ink comes just weeks after O’Malley added another tattoo to his growing collection with the numbers “6969” placed on his shoulder after he became fast friends with controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.

O’Malley even allowed the hip-hop artist get started by placing the ink on his body before an actual artist took over for the rest of the work.

As far as his fight career goes, O’Malley is currently 2-0 in 2021 after finishing Almeida back in March and then dispatching late-notice replacement opponent Kris Moutinho by third-round TKO in July.

There’s been no word yet when O’Malley will compete next as he continues making waves at 135 pounds in the UFC.
