Stephanie Rice adds to her Olympic rings tattoo (Picture)

Stephanie Rice better not swim too much longer otherwise she might run out of tattoo room under her arm.

The Australian swimmer added to her Olympic rings tattoo and showed the updated ink off on her Twitter and Instagram account Thursday. Rice got her tattoo after participating in the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing where she became a star after winning three gold medals.

At just 24 years old, she still has plenty of time to participate in more Olympics, though a shoulder injury has derailed her career recently.

When star swimmers like her get the Olympic rings tattoo, it’s no wonder someone like Missy Franklin wanted in on the act.

Missy Franklin got her Olympic rings tattoo (Picture)

Missy Franklin said before the Games that she was planning to get an Olympics tattoo, and she went through with her plans. The 17-year-old swimmer got a small tattoo of the Olympic rings around her right hip and shared a picture of it on her Twitter account Thursday.

Franklin had the approval of her parents and says this will be her only tattoo.

“Getting a tattoo has never been something ever thought I would do, but this one just has so much meaning to it and it is really something that you have to earn,” Franklin told TODAY.com. “Not a lot of people have the opportunity to get it, so I just feel like it’s an honor to get it.”

“This will be the only one, and she’s earned it,” Dick Franklin told TODAY.com while in London.

We’ll see if this is her only one — lots of people say they’re addictive. Maybe she’ll end up adding to it if she participates in future Olympics the way Stephanie Rice did.

Jason Terry gets tattoo of Celtics’ leprechaun holding championship trophy (Picture)

Jason Terry revealed a new tattoo that is sure to endear him to Boston Celtics fans.

Terry, who played with the Mavericks the last eight seasons before signing with Boston in July, shared a few pictures of his new tattoo via Twitter on Saturday. His new ink features the Celtics’ leprechaun logo with the championship trophy swapped in where the leprechaun would otherwise be balancing a basketball on his finger. The tattoo appears on the inner part of Terry’s left biceps, opposite the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy tattoo on his right biceps.

Terry’s original championship trophy tattoo became a source of controversy when it was revealed he got the tattoo before the 2010-2011 NBA season began. At that point he hadn’t won an NBA championship, and he promised to get it removed if the Mavericks didn’t win the title.

As fate would have it, Dallas rallied to beat Miami in the NBA Finals, making the tattoo decision look prescient. Celtics fans are hoping the new ink will result in the same outcome.

As an interesting note, the Celtics’ leprechaun logo was actually designed by Red Auerbach’s brother Zang in the early ’50s.

Fan has frightening James Harden tattoo on his arm (Picture)

People love a sixth man with a beard. If you didn’t know that prior to the 2011-2012 NBA season, you know it now. During Oklahoma City’s run to the NBA Finals, James Harden became the most popular bench player in the league. Part of it was the 16.8 points per game and the clutch shooting, but most of it was the beard. We have seen a lot of Harden tributes over the past several months, but the one you see above that Black Sports Online shared with us is by far the most frightening.

We were fine with Harden’s beard made into a cake, arranged out of fruits or plastered on the entrance of a building. Now, it has gone too far. We’ve shown you some scary athlete tribute tattoos over the years here at LBS, but this is easily one of the most disturbing. Are those bits of toilet paper in his beard? Did the artist quit before it was finished? These are the questions.

Reuben Foster changes commitment to Auburn, gets tattoo to prove it (Picture)

Reuben Foster is the top-rated linebacker for the 2013 recruiting class according to multiple recruiting services, and he made some waves when he changed his commitment from Alabama to Auburn last Thursday.

The Auburn (Ala.) High School product said he was announcing his decision so he could put it behind him and begin getting prepared for college.

Foster dressed up his daughter in an Auburn outfit and used her as a prop to announce which school he chose. He also showed off a new tattoo with the Auburn logo on his forearm to show his commitment was really sealed in ink:

Knucklehead Carlos Sturgus identified in shooting because of Yankees tattoo on forehead (Picture)

21-year-old Carlos Sturgus of Mesa, Arizona, was arrested last week for shooting another man. Sturgus was apparently arguing with another man on the balcony of his apartment, and when the man left, Sturgus began shooting at him. A shootout ensued, and one of Sturgus’ shots apparently struck the other man in the back.

According to the Phoenix New Times, Sturgus was found by detectives in Glendale, Arizona, after a witness identified him.

I’ll bet you’ll never guess how he was identified. And no, it wasn’t because of the sneakers he was wearing.

A neighbor helped identify Sturgus to police by informing them he had a Yankees tattoo on his forehead.

He also reportedly told police he was carrying the gun because “he has robbed many people in Mesa and many people want to kill him…”

I’d say something about how dumb this guy is for confessing robberies to the cops while he’s wanted for possession of a firearm and assault with a deadly weapon, but then again, this is the same guy who got a Yankees tattoo on his forehead. You almost have to expect stupidity from stupidity. He’s actually doing the public a favor by getting a tattoo like that because it’s just a shortcut that let’s us all know what an idiot he is.
