Newsday reporter Kimberley Martin was present to witness Jets defensive end Quinton Coples engage in the sacred ritual of branding.
She described the scent of burning flesh as “overpowering” as his “skin crackled, bubbled and hissed under the scalding heat of flaming metal.”
Coples likened the smell to “bacon.”
“Your burned skin smells like bacon,” he told Newsday. “I never knew.”
Coples told Martin anyone could get a tattoo, but a brand makes his membership in Omega Psi Phi Fraternity official.
Gazing at the large keloid-scarred Omega symbols on his arms, he simply said, “It’s a beautiful thing.”
