The NBA has an assortment of players with some serious ink. I know a lot of other athletes in different sports who also boast some great body art, but the NBA is arguably the best stage (in sports) to show off your latest tats. Tank topped jerseys and shorts reveal the perfect canvas to cover with whatever the player wants to express. This is the top 10 tattooed NBA players (current).

#10: DeShawn Stevenson

  • DeShawn Stevenson is a cool dude. From the wacky 5Abe Lincoln5 tat on his throat, to the deeply detailed dice on his left shoulder. This guy has some nice work. He also has a full chest of ink and his name and number sketched on his back. This is in case Stevenson forgets to wear his jersey to a game.
#9: Carlos Boozer

  • Boozer has an array of flame-based work on both arms and shoulders. He also has two chest tattoos, one that reads “Look back & thank God… Look forward & trust God”. And to top it all off, Boozer sports a pretty slick winged figure on his entire back.
#8: Carmelo Anthony

  • Melo has some sweet body art. Even in his days at Syracuse University, Carmelo had always displayed a love for ink. Number 15 has a wide variety of different pieces of art scattered all over his arms and upper torso. He has a cool looking dagger with a snake on the inside of his right forearm as well as a fully illustrated collage on the rest of that same arm.
#7: Terrence Williams

  • Terrence Williams is one of those guys who certainly seems to let his off the court antics get in the way of his actual talent, but then again, this list celebrates bold body art, and Williams excels in that aspect of life. Both arms are completely sleeved and his back is covered as well. Well played, sir!
#6: LeBron James

  • Aside from both arms being blackened with ink. LeBron also sports a tattoo on his chest and the words Chosen 1″ on the top of his back as if it were the name on his jersey. Maybe that’s a gimmick the NBA store should cash in on… The Chosen 1  Miami Heat jersey collection. I’d buy one.
#5: Matt Barnes

  • Journeyman, Matt Barnes, has some of the coolest ink in the NBA, in my opinion. From the incredible work on both forearms, to his neck tattoo, a tribute to his twin sons. Barnes has a tribute to his deceased mother on his stomach and left rib cage and also wears a tribute to the late, Tupac Shakur on his left bicep. Barnes says that each of his tattoos tells a story.
#4: Kenyon Martin

  • Not only does K-Mart not give a crap about what you think of the way he approaches the game of basketball…. Turns out he also doesn’t really give a hell how you feel about his body art. The bright red lips that lay smack-dab on the right hand side of Martin’s neck are a dead give away that this dude is a unique soul.
#3: J.R. Smith
  • J.R. Smith is another guy who you just sit back and watch.. And you do this because you never really know what the heck he’s going to do next. Maybe he’ll drill a 3 with just a few ticks left on the clock, perhaps he’ll go hard to the rack and finish with a devastating jam, or maybe he’ll do something so bone-headed that he’ll be sent to 6th or 7th man purgatory for the remainder of his NBA career. One thing is for sure though, Smith will continue to impress us with his awesome tattoos.
#2: Monta Ellis

  • Monta Ellis is clearly a fan of getting poked with ink covered needles. This kid has about as much ink as one man can have covering their arms and torso. But in his defense, it’s some pretty solid stuff. The tattoo covering Monta’s entire back is one of the most incredible works of art that I’ve ever laid eyes on. And the counter-part to that tattoo (his chest) is just as amazing as the back. It’s a gigantic tree with a babies’ head bobbing around like an apple in a bucket of water. Pretty sweet work, Monta!
#1: Chris “Birdman” Anderson

  • When you’re talking bright colors, bold designs and an overall commitment to spending hours in a chair while a heavy-set biker digs into your flesh with a vibrating gun filled with needles.. Look no further for your winner than the Birdman! This guy wins any tattoo debate by a landslide because he’s embraced the spirit of having fun with it.
