Ricky is the owner of Chronic ink where Tsang works and is her boss. She said that they both decided to do it spontaneously.

And then my boss let me tattoo @MichaelPhelps on him.... #Rio2016 #Olympics #PhelpsFace

Tsang explained to BuzzFeed News that Ricky got the tattoo for a combination of reasons. First, he's a Phelps fan, he really admires the qualities that Phelps has, particularly his perseverance and determination.

"Those are elements that he really respects about him," Tsang said. "We're planning on doing more portraits of star athletes on his leg and we figured Phelps would be a good one to add."
