However, one of his greatest accomplishments at these Olympic games has absolutely nothing to do with winning a gold medal. I'm talking, of course, about the Michael Phelps face meme we've all completely fallen in love with.
Phelps gave this gift to humanity in the moments leading up to the 200 meter butterfly race, in which he went against rival swimmer Chad le Clos.
Now, it appears someone has taken the obsession with the Michael Phelps face meme one step further by getting a massive tattoo of the Phelps face.

This is absolutely sensational. It's cool enough someone actually got this tattoo, but the fact the detailing on the tattoo is insane makes it that much better.
Like, if you're going to get a Michael Phelps face meme tattoo, you better get a fucking great one.
