Long snappers may not get much love from fans, but BYU's Matt Foley is proud of his position.

Like, really proud.

Not only is his Twitter handle "@THE_LongSnapper," but he recently got inked up so people on the street would know who he is. Check out the tattoo Foley recently got on his arm, via Reddit user deen5526:

For all of the haters out there, Foley has a simple message for you:

Matt Foley @THE_LongSnapper

10 hours later...it's finally done 🙌💉

You all think I care what you think 😂

Give him credit. Being a long snapper means so much to him that he is willing to sit through 10 hours of pain to permanently mark his body. You have to admire that passion.
