Kenyon Martin

Martin’s tattoo of his girlfriend’s lips might be considered a little odd. The cross on his back is anything but. His unique shape and shading is a creative take on classic design.

Wilson Chandler

Wilson Chandler’s right hand depicts an eye of an angel with the words “All is Well” underneath. The symbolism behind the ink is that the angel is watching over him always according to Chandler.

Marquis Daniels

Daniels has “1090 Blokk Boyz”, the name of the tattoo on his neck. We haven’t heard his music but the tattoo is pretty wild.

David Beckham

Some of Beck’s notable ink includes Hindi characters spelling out “Victoria”, his wife’s name, on his left arm and his right arm bears flames and the phrase “Let them hate as long as they fear.”
