A Collingwood fan decided to make a permanent tribute to the class of 2023 after the Pies’ premiership triumph on Saturday.
But there was one crucial error made, that may need some rectifying.
A clip of the Pies fan has gone viral after his mate, who was ’10 cans deep’ tattooed him following Saturday’s grand final celebrations.

Over 100,000 supporters were in attendance and the party has continued in the hours following the final siren, with fans turning out in their droves to catch a glimpse of Darcy Moore’s team with the premiership cup.

But for one fan, he may wake up feeling regretful after getting ‘the most Collingwood tattoo ever’ inked on his body.
A clip that has circulated on TikTok shows the fan getting a new tattoo on his left arm, with a Pies mate holding the tattoo needle.
‘I think I did good for 10 cans deep aye,’ says the mate as he finishes up the job.
Another friend in the background points out the error. The tattoo reads ‘Flagpies 2020’ as opposed to ‘Flagpies 2023’.
‘You did a zero instead of a three?’ the Pies fan says to his mate, who can’t contain himself.
Elsewhere, Channel 7 has revealed that the grand final drew the second-biggest audience of the year, with 4.98 million Australians watching on television, while 756,000 tuned in on 7plus.
