View Full Version : NBA Athletes and Tatoos

Just a quick comment on this subject.

I think that Tatoos can be interesting, but IMHO they're overrated. It's like these rookies come into the league and they get all tatooed up to make a statement -like 'look how tough I am - look at my tatoo'.

I respect the athletes more if their tatoos are more subtle or if they have none at all. To me that says more about a persons character than an over the top tatoo - because they know where they stand in their own mind - and the only place they need to prove it is one the court.

I really like JO's YEAR OF THE RESURRECTION tatoo. I think AI has waaay to many though. Has anyone seen Reggie's? the one on his back... ?

I think Fred looks nice w/ out them.

Yeah you can see the top of it in the ENCORE wallpaper from pacers.com.

I've always loved Reggie's because it looks like his jerseys tag is coming out :lol:

I don't really pay attention to tattoos, I just don't care about them.

That cross on Jack's hand is the best tat in the NBA imo

The worst tattoo job in the league goes to Rafael Araujo.

Not only are they horrible, but his game is horrible. He is a joke - and the fact that he tries to represent some bad-boy with all the tats is laughable. Then you hear him being interviewed, and he's got the softest voice, with that Brazilian accent...man, it just doesn't match. At least he makes me laugh when he misses his wide open lay-ups (he did it again last night!).

If you really want to **** off a Raptors fan, just say "Andre Iguodala".

I've always wondered what Reggie's was. I always saw the tip of it, but I've never seen the whole thing.

How about Sheed's tatoo? The one in his Nike commercial about how his family relates to some Egyptian gods or something? I know Shaw of course has the Superman logo and "DIESEL," then I think it's Boozer that has "The Beast" with some picture that he points to after a dunk.

Personally, I don't care what they are, I hardly notice them during a game. Except on AI because he's got 'em like on his neck and everywhere. A lot of the guys are so dark (please, no one take that the wrong way) that it's hard to see them unless they get a close-up on the bench or something.

What does class have to do with this?

I don't think I've ever seen the cross on Jax's hand that Golly is referring to. Anyone have a pic of it or a link to a pic?

10-14-2005, 10:51 PM
:hmm: maybe...
