It's tattoo week at Westword. Thus far, we've featured a gallery of our favorite Colorado flag tattoos and a tribute to inked-up Nugget Chris "Birdman" Andersen, who's currently in the doghouse. Today, in honor of this evening's kickoff to the NFL draft, we bring you the ten most unusual Broncos tattoos we found on the Internetz.
Do they spark laughter or envy? We leave it to you to decide -- although at least one is a no-doubter....
10. Demon Horse Bet the Blue Mustang at DIA is jealous. 9. A Brian Dawkins tribute? Extra points for putting the just-retired Dawkins's number on this steed. Page down to continue our top ten most unusual Broncos tattoos countdown. 8. John Elway zombie Just imagine how much flesh Big John could eat with those giant choppers. 7. Bronco with a cold? Presumably, that's supposed to be smoke coming out of the horse's nostrils. But they could definitely pass for streams of mucus.

Bet this guy doesn't regret it in the slightest. 5. Double zero On some level, it makes sense to avoid a real player's number, just in case the guy turns out to be the next O.J. (Oh, wait a minute. He was innocent!) But "00" is too much like hearing that a character in a movie has a phone number that starts with "555." Page down to continue our top ten most unusual Broncos tattoos countdown. 4. The Lombardi trophy Proof in ink that the Broncos actually won a Super Bowl once upon a time. 3. The Elway lasso What the hell is that coming out of Elway's crotch? And why is it yellow?

Too great things that go great together! 1. Tebow Time Not anymore it's not.
