You know it's the offseason when:http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball- ... 20302.html
On average, NBA players have lots of tattoos. It's part of the culture, for one thing, but also an opportunity for players to bring attention to people or places that have played a central role in getting them to where they are. Think Stephon Marbury's "Coney Island's Finest" ink or Kevin Durant's large show of support for his home state of Maryland.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings is from Compton in Los Angeles, and he has many tats that pay tribute to his hometown. One, though, stands out more than others: a chicken-emblazoned waffle on his left forearm in honor of the legendary Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles. Jennings recently posted a photo of it to his Instagram account, and you can check it out above (via Stiletto Jill).
On the face of it, it's a little ridiculous for someone to put a tattoo of a waffle on his arm. But it makes perfect sense if you've ever been to Roscoe's, or really just know about it's status as a landmark. Anyone from the area speaks of it in reverential tones. In reality, a Roscoe's tat for a Compton native is about as normal as a Philadelphian getting ink of the Liberty Bell.
Of course, Jennings' Roscoe's love doesn't stop here — over the weekend, he also tweeted a photo of his special Roscoe's basketball shoes. Yet even that isn't especially crazy. Honestly, it might seem perfectly normal until he shows up to a game in a chicken suit. Which, at this rate, might eventually happen.

If he was really committed to staying in Milwaukee he would have gotten a Culvers tattoo. Trade him asap imo.

That's disgusting. Who thought it was OK to superimpose those logos onto me when I'm just having a quiet day in the park?

Coloring on your body
....especially if you are skinny or slight. Not good.
Your body is a temple if not your god's...but to each his or her own.
