Damar Hamlin, the NFL star, marked the one-year anniversary of his cardiac arrest during a Buffalo Bills game with a meaningful tattoo. The 25-year-old athlete debuted the new ink on the back of his neck on celebrity tattoo artist Alexander Brenes’ Instagram page. The tattoo showcases hands forming a heart shape with an electrocardiogram at its center.
Brenes shared a close-up of the tattoo, emphasizing its enduring significance one year later. Hamlin commented on the post, expressing his emotions through emojis.
Reflecting on the anniversary of his on-field health scare, Hamlin shared a message on a GoFundMe page benefiting a toy drive sponsored by his Chasing M’s Foundation. He thanked donors for their generosity and outlined the charitable efforts of his foundation, emphasizing the mission to empower youth and support those facing adversity.
In his message, Hamlin highlighted the impact of his experience, inspiring individuals to undergo CPR training, leading to life-saving actions. The NFL player returned to the field in October, participating in the Bills’ special teams during their game against the Miami Dolphins. Hamlin expressed pride in overcoming the traumatic incident and continuing to pursue his passion at the highest level.
As the Bills aim for a playoff spot, Hamlin and his team face the Miami Dolphins again this Sunday.
