Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp recently paid tribute to his grandmother and late grandfather with a massive tattoo on his chest. The artwork was done by a 23-year-old tattoo artist named Jun Cha, and as you can see he is incredibly talented. Kemp tweeted the photo you see above over the weekend with the following message:
“If it wasn’t for my grandparents I wouldn’t b where I’m at 2day!”
Here is a closer look at the amount of detail that went into the portrait, via Jun Cha’s website.
Kemp’s grandfather, Vincent Mukes, died in November. His grandmother, Doris, said a few years ago she didn’t like all of her grandson’s tattoos.
“I tell him, ‘You’ve got this beautiful body, and you mar it all up,’” Mukes told Sports Illustrated in 2011.
We’ve shown you some detailed tattoos over the years here at LBS (many of which are extremely disturbing), but Kemp’s is easily one of the most amazing.Google+
