Fans Supporting Teams with Teeth Tattoos

Whether it’s getting your whole body tattooed with autographs from your favorite team or getting an ass tattoo for playoff tickets, fans do crazy things when it comes to their ink. It’s not even fans, either. We’ve seen athletes get tattoos on their necks, on their heads, and their butt. What I didn’t realize is that the latest fad is getting teeth tattoos. Chad Margulius of IntheOT.com has an uncle who is a dentist. One of his patients has this Canucks logo placed on one of his porcelain puppies:

I suppose the good news is, as Chad pointed out, compared to permanent ink at least you can just pull out your tooth when you get sick of it.

Dominique Jones Better Hope He Sticks in the NBA

Dominique Jones was drafted by the Grizzlies and traded to the Mavericks this year after spending three seasons at South Florida. The 6’4″ guard was one of the best scorers in college basketball you never heard of. He threw in 46 against Providence, 37 on Pitt, and he averaged just over 21ppg this past season. His scoring ability would lead one to believe Jones will have a future in the NBA but you never know who will make it and who won’t.

That’s probably why it was somewhat ballsy of Jones to get a tattoo of the NBA logo on his leg as passed along by Jimmy Traina’s Hot Clicks and The Sporting Rave. Here is a picture of Dominique Jones’ NBA logo tattoo:

Hey, good news is he has the other leg available for the NBDL logo in case he gets cut!

K-Mart Gets Rid of Ridiculous Tattoo

These pictures of Kenyon Martin’s lips tattoo being covered up, courtesy of Sports by Brooks, seem to indicate he has suffered a serious break-up with his former girlfriend — a rapper named Trina.  Brooks’ source sent him the photos that he had taken in a Miami night club called Lux Nightclub and said K-Mart was with a woman that night that was not Trina.  Here’s what Martin had to say about the tattoo when he got it back in 2008:

It’s just something that I wanted to get a while ago, but I’m not just gonna get it for anyone .. (someone) who is special to me, who means something to me.“

If breaking up with this woman means getting rid of arguably the most ridiculous tattoo a professional athlete has ever gotten, then I’d say it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to K-Mart.  That thing was tough to even look at.  Who wants to see a grown man playing basketball on national television with a red pair of lips tattooed on his neck?  Certainly not me.  Maybe I’ll be able to watch a few more Nuggets games now.  Probably not.

LT’s New Jets and Old Chargers Tattoos

It’s only June and we’ve already noted that LaDainian Tomlinson hasn’t impressed in a Jets uniform after signing there this offseason. Due to a combination of age and carries, LT’s body has already been breaking down and he’s just not the same. That’s why it probably wasn’t such a good idea to fully commit himself to his new team by getting permanent ink on his body. We mentioned how LT got a new Jets tattoo earlier this month and luckily for us, a Sal Paolantonio report on ESPN showed us those tats. Here are pictures of LT’s Jets tattoo and his old Chargers tattoo:

LT probably figures he has a few more years left in his career and doesn’t see what we do. It’s a shame, because if I had to make a guess, LT’s right calf will read 2010-2011 on it and that just won’t look very good.

Shaq Got Some Fresh New Tattoos

Shaq missed the last six weeks of the regular season after having surgery on his injured thumb. While Shaq was out we heard how he was working hard to get into shape and that he lost 20 pounds. That seems accurate because Shaq has looked pretty good since rejoining the Cavaliers for their playoff series against the Bulls. I also noticed that something else had changed with Shaq’s appearance: he seemed to have plenty more work done on his arms and chest. I don’t know how many of Shaq’s tattoos were there at the beginning of the season, but based on some of these pictures it looks like Shaq got plenty more ink, taking a page from teammates LeBron James and Mo Williams:

As you can tell, it looks like he got a second Superman tattoo, the latest on his right arm to go along with the original “Man of Steel” S on the left arm. You can also see Shaq’s fraternity tattoo on the backside of his left arm. It’s for his fraternity, Omega Psi Phi. Here’s how Shaq’s arms used to look, courtesy of Vanishing Tattoo:

As you can see, Shaq sure has added on over the years, most recently during his stay in Cleveland.

Mayweather: Shane Mosley’s New Tattoo ‘Out of Character’

A week ago I read an article in the Las Vegas Sun talking about the upcoming Floyd Mayweather Jr./Sugar Shane Mosley fight. Obviously there’s a ton riding on this fight — possibly $30 million for Floyd should he win and agree to fight Manny Pacquiao. According to the article, Mayweather feels like he has a mental advantage in the fight because Shane got a new tattoo recently:

“I think he’s kind of out of character,” Mayweather said. “We all know that’s not the real Shane Mosley. The guy waits until he’s 38 to get tattoos? Come on.”

Obviously I was wondering what the big deal was with Mosley getting a new tattoo that caused Mayweather to treat it like it were Mike Tyson’s face ink. Well, thanks to a story at The Sweet Science, I finally saw a picture of Mosley’s tattoo that had caused all the drama. Here it is:

It definitely has a trendy/tribal feel to it and doesn’t seem to go along with who Shane Mosley is, so I see Floyd’s point. Mayweather will have his chance to make his point in the ring on May 1st. He better not screw this one up otherwise it would go down as one of boxing’s biggest blunders.

Colts Fan Matt Ellis has Autographs Tattooed on His Body

Some dude named Glenn Timmermann became pretty well-known for having a bunch of Chicago Bears autographs tattooed on his body. He topped off the look with the Bears logo inked on the back of his skull. Yeah, that’s a nice look. Anyway, apparently Timmermann has inspired an entire culture of superfans. Maybe not, but Colts fan Matt Ellis is following in his footsteps. Ellis has 33 Colts autographs tattooed on his body. WANE channel 15 in Indy actually did a story on Ellis to provide the background for the insanity:

If you ever wondered what type of person would do that to his body, now you have the answer. Pretty much anyone whose resolution to not having enough memorabilia for players to autograph is get them to sign his body obviously isn’t a very deep thinker. The good news is that Ellis can just chop off various body pieces for auction if he ever runs low on cash — not to say he would ever have trouble finding a job looking like that. Not at all.
