Some Seriously Bad NBA Ink

Andrei Kirilenko _ Family In St. Barth For Christmas

The best part of the National Basketball Association features some of the world’s best athletes performing at a level that few people could ever even hope to see in person, let alone achieve…it also features a ton of tattoos. Most of them are your average run of the mill ink pieces, featuring children’s names, astrological symbols, and life motto…some of them aren’t so average though. Now we know we said that the ink in this article is “seriously bad”, but perhaps we’re overstating, these tattoos are just different…and kind of weird if we’re being honest. As you can see in the headline picture, Andrei Kirelenko of The Utah Jazz leads the way with his…ummmmmm…whatever that is. It appears to be some sort of winged beast; perhaps of destiny or perhaps of destruction, we don’t really know. Whatever it is, we wouldn’t want it to be real, because it would probably eat us and poop out our remains on a family picnics. It also makes him look kind of like an extra in a Russian Mafia movie, but who are we to judge…just in this situation, not the rest of the times we judge people.

Next up we have Maverick’s star Deshawn Stevenson, who really likes Abraham Lincoln. Now there’s nothing wrong with this at all, we just can’t see ourselves tattooing a president on our necks, even if he was one of the best. Now we can kind of assume that te ink is rooted in the concept of Lincoln abolishing slavery, and that as an African American, Stevenson wants to rep the man who changed the world…but still, the neck is a strong statement.

Finally, we have Miami Heat contributor Udonis Haslem, who loves his state…way more than most people love anything apparently. We know this because he has a giant picture of the state of Florida inked on his back. We really wish that he would’ve gone with an orange instead, or maybe a gator, or a meth head, any of the images that represent Florida really. So yeah, NBA players are just like anyone else, and sometimes they get silly with their tattoos.

Chris Bosh’s Sprawling Mishmash of Back Tattoos

What’s Chris Bosh doing with his downtime from the NBA? He went off to the Caribbean to complete a big mishmash of ink on his back.

Holy Cow what in the Lord’s name has he got going on there? It kinda makes me laugh to think about all the things. An eagle screeching, a bare tree, a zombie skull with smoke coming out of its eye holes, big music notes flying down a tiger’s back or mountains and some old dudes faces. And what is he adding to that? A horror show screaming woman with a skull and the Coliseum? I am sure he could explain the significance of it but I don’t see the rhyme or rhythm. That’s cool though, you don’t always want to see the same old things, its good when art puzzles you sometimes, you can sit there thinking about it for awhile.
