Anonymous asked: John Wall added to his already new stomach tattoo. Can be seen on his instagram photo posted yesterday
Quick follow up to last week’s post about John Wall’s tattoo. This better view makes clear that the tattoo involves a portrait, and suggests that Wall went through with his plan to get a tribute to his father. Thanks for the tip
Congratulations to Danny Green on his big game last night. There have been a lot of articles lately about Green that recount his path to the Spurs, a path that ran through four years at the University of North Carolina. His time as a Tarheel is commemorated by his tattoos, shown above, as shared through his Instagram account.
“The one on his neck,’’ Heat forward Udonis Haslem, who has a number of tattoos, said of what jumps out on the Birdman. “I’m a tattoo guy; that one right there is impressive even to me. … He’s a fan favorite. The media loves him, the fans love him, the ladies love him.’’
Last night, Steph Curry posted videos on Vine of himself and his wife getting matching tattoos. The design is Hebrew text which translates to “Love Never Fails” as seen above on Curry’s wrist. Below are some stills showing both Stephen and Ayesha Curry in the process of getting tattooed:
Many thanks to Doron B.A for providing the Hebrew translation
Earlier this week, Andre Iguodala posted a photo on instagram of himself in the gym. The photo shows his chest tattoos, which include a lengthy text and Roman numerals. As the original photo was taken in a mirror, it’s reversed above for clarity.
Anonymous asked: JOHN WALL HAS A TATTOO, ADD IT. CHECK LAS VEGAS PARTY PHOTOS
Thanks! The website Ball All Over has put together a thorough slideshow of photos from the Memorial Day weekend parties featuring John Wall, Lil Wayne, and Meek Mill, and as noted, Wall has a tattoo covering his stomach. Unfortunately, none of the photos show the design clearly, but it’s possible that the tattoo matches the one he described in 2010 to a Washington Post writer: “Wall has declined to get tattoos because of concerns over his image for marketing reasons, but he is considering getting one on his chest, considering it strongly enough that he has a specific design in mind. It would be of his dad’s face, with clouds surrounding, and the words ‘Forever Living On.’”
Anonymous asked: Paul Geerge 661 tattoo?
Sadly there doesn’t seem to be a great photo of the “661” tattooed on Paul George’s right wrist. While this hasn’t been confirmed in an interview, it’s safe to assume that the “661” references the area code for Palmdale, California, where George was born and raised.
Bonus: George also has his birthday (05/02/90) tattooed on his right arm:
