Jordan Clarkson went wild with the tattoos this offseason
What a difference an offseason makes.
Jordan Clarkson’s body appeared to be ink-free as recently as last season. But during the offseason, that all changed. Fans noticed that Clarkson was showing off new tattoos up and down his arms while he played for the Philippines during the Asian Games in August. He added even more since then and was seen sporting a neck tattoo during the Cleveland Cavaliers’ media day.
Clarkson was traded by the Los Angeles Lakers to the Cavaliers at the deadline last season. He is now teammates with JR Smith, a heavily-tattooed player, leading to a funny joke about Smith’s perceived influence on Clarkson:

Clarkson also cleared out his Instagram page. He started fresh, with his first post coming in mid-July showing him getting tattooed:
The Clarkson whom fans see this year will look a lot different from what they’re used to. Just be warned: you now know what to expect.
The last time we saw a tattoo transition happen this quick had to have been Monta Ellis.
