Mark Recchi retired earlier this summer after a fantastic career that saw him score 577 goals with a number of teams, including the Penguins, Flyers, Canadiens, Hurricanes, Thrashers, Lighting and, most recently, the Boston Bruins. Going to Boston during the 2008-09 season seemed to give his career a jump start at the age of 40, and in parts of three seasons with the Bruins, he managed to score 42 goals as a valuable asset to their offense.

He was also a nice addition during the playoffs this past season, recording 14 points in 25 games, as the Bruins took home the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1972.

For Recchi, it was his third Stanley Cup, having previously won with Pittsburgh (1991) and Carolina (2006).

To celebrate, Recchi decided to celebrate his championships permanently in the form of a tattoo on his ankle that features the Cup, the logos of the three teams he won it with, and the years he earned his rings.

Here's a video from the Bruins website that features Recchi showing off his new ink, and his plans for future artwork to accompany it.
