Chris Bosh’s back tattoo is… interesting. And large.

Aug 9, 2011, 2:27 PM EDT


More pictures of Chris Bosh getting more ink on his back have surfaced (thank you very much The Basketball Jones and Lost in the Wilderness) and.. we still don’t really get it. Not why he’d get a business tattoo (meaning his jersey covers it) but what it is supposed to mean.

To be clear, there is a Zeus like figure, a tree, an eagle, a tiger/cougar, musical notes, a skull, a woman holding a skull and the Roman Colosseum. It is all very impressive work and apparently has taken 40 hours to do. It takes over most of his back (and there is more to do). I just am missing the connection.

Which is fine, not my body. But I’m curious. Below you can see the entire thing.

    Why oh why would anyone ever do something like this. Besides being painful and expensive, it’s really ugly to boot. What is the point? Considering everyone and their dog is doing it, if you want to express your individuality, looks like you would do nothing, since that makes you the exception.

      A misconception about tattoos is that they are for individuality or people get them for attention (among dozens of other inane reasons I’ve heard in the past) and while that may be true for some, it’s not always the case.

      i see what you mean for most people but expensive doesn’t matter in this situation. like he cares about that he’s a multi-millionaire

    It may just be me, but the girl reminds me of Mila Kunas.

    And they aren’t nearly as painful either.

    i knew he was a weirdo. no offense to any of the white homies that frequent this site, but a blackman should never put the image of a white guy on his body, unless it’s his dad, maybe willis & arnold can get mr.D, but this is ridiculous. how confused is this guy? 1st man hugs now some wizard looking dude on his back, wtf?

    “i love all of your work, i can’t choose which one I want….you know what, just put all of them on my back”
    “can you put the phonebooth next to the wheel barrel? awesome!”

    This is further proof that Chris Bosh is a flaming moron.

    Why would anyone “ink” a picture on their body they wouldn’t be caught dead hanging in their house?
