Irish Rugby international Mack Hansen joined forces with former Scotland player Jim Hamilton to settle a long-standing wager between the two sportsmen this week.


During an episode of the Rugby Pod earlier this year, the pair placed a bet stipulating that in the event of an Ireland loss to Scotland, Hansen would get a tattoo of “Big Jim,” while if Scotland were to lose, Hamilton would get a tattoo of “Big Mack.”

Red Bull orchestrated the meeting between Hansen and Hamilton to resolve the bet made by the former Scotland and Saracens lock. Hamilton fulfilled his end of the bargain by getting the words “Big Mack” tattooed on his left arm.

The tattoo adds to his impressive arm sleeve, all supervised by Galway tattoo artist Ciaran Lynch, with the latest ink care of Hansen getting a prominent position on Hamilton’s limb, just above the inner elbow joint.

Hansen, who has been known for his bold and lively style both on and off the pitch for Connacht and Ireland, has made Galway and Ireland his home since his move in 2021.
