Former West Coast Eagles premiership star Nathan Vardy has shown off a creative new tattoo on his left foot.

It is very common for AFL players to get a commemorative tattoo after they fulfil the lifelong dream of winning a premiership, but Vardy has found a creative twist on the celebratory ink.

Vardy has had a QR code made up and inked on the top of his foot. When scanned, the QR code takes you to a video of the defining play of the 2018 Grand Final which saw West Coast break Collingwood hearts.

The video begins with Jeremey McGovern's incredible intercept mark, which led to Vardy being hot on the chest on the way out. It finishes of course, with Dom Sheed's incredible game-winning goal from the boundary line.

In a post on his Instagram page, Vardy showed off the functionality of the tattoo with the caption "Never forget".

Former teammates and current West Coast stars Nic Naitanui and Jake Waterman were impressed with the piece of art.

Naitanui commented "😂😂😂 arm barrrr", while Waterman commented with laughter.

Former Eagles sharpshooter Mark LeCras also voiced his approval with the former small forward commenting "love that!"

Fellow premiership star Tom Cole seemingly wasn't as impressed as he commented "🤮🤮🤮”

Vardy retired at the end of the 2021 season having played 77 games at both Geelong and West Coast.
