Bootstrap tooltips in Ruby on Rails App Not Working

Running

ruby 2.2.1p85 (2015-02-26 revision 49769) [x86_64-linux]

and
Rails 4.2.5


I'm trying to added bootstrap tooklips into a ruby tag
<%= link_to '', account, class: "fa fa-eye" %>
but it doesn't seem to work.

The syntax I used was

<%= link_to '', account, class: "fa fa-eye" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="top" title="Tooltip on top">Tooltip on top %>


I placed the sample code from the bootstrap site

<button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-toggle="tooltip" data-placement="top" title="Tooltip on top">Tooltip on top</button>


just to make sure that the js was working correctly and it seem to be fine. I want to avoid installing bootstrap-tooltip-rails Gem or any other gem for that matter. Not sure what I'm missing.
