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:

Anonymous asked: Greg Smith (Houston) has a ton of tattoos on his left arm and a massive chest tattoo that says Family First
Yes he does! Thanks for letting me know, I’ve updated the Rockets page and the 2012-13 overall statistics.
Last week, the New York Post ran a story running through the tattoos of both New York teams. There are some nice details of designs on Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, and CJ Watson. There’s also a telling quote from Randy Harris of Tattoos by Randy who reminds us that players will be held accountable for their tattoos so everyone puts a lot of thought into what they’re getting. The best part is a quote from Kenyon Martin about the tattoo reading “Bad Ass Yellow Boy” on his torso: “Down South, they call light-skinned people yellow. When I got to college, there was a song out by some guys from New Orleans called UNLV. They had made the song, and that was my theme song.”

apologies, credit where credit is due. Thanks to rerenember for directing me to the article Trail Blazers tattoos reveal players values last month. Side note, rerenember’s tumblr is great, I’m pretty sure we have the same favorite bands.
