A professional basketball player cramming a body’s worth of ink in to a jersey-shaped swath of skin so that he maintains his nice guy marketability is the epitome of business tattoos. Too funny. Gotta stay family-friendly.


Some players care about their image, other don't.

Nothing wrong with business tattoos. If I ever get one, I'm going to make sure it's not visible at all when I'm wearing a dress shirt. Some people you deal with are just too old-school for tattoos, so you need to plan accordingly.

I understand Durant doesn't ''need'' to take that approach, though. But still.

How dare this dude maintain his marketability by not getting tattoos on his face and arms.

I thought he was selling ad space on his body from reading the title

Something doesn't seem right, here. Either his head is misshapen, or that's not his body.

Lol, I was thinking the same thing. I'd think he would have a leaner torso than that.

I think it's the way his body is positioned. But I don't see what's wrong with not showing the Tate all over the place like most NBA players. He doesn't want to be called a stereotypical black basketball player

This is a business tattoo. Not only did earn Sheed and Nike some $$, it brought on a lawsuit from the artist for unlicensed use of his art.
