Worst Tattoos in Sports
Tattoos and athletes go hand in hand like candy and a baby. Sometimes, those tattoos really aren’t meant to be on an athlete or anyone for that matter. I’ll continue to add on to this list that’s been started
Own Name Tattoo
Vince Young – Jersey is still needed because there’s no number
DeShawn Stevenson – No jersey needed
Lebron James – Instead of his name, it’s the chosen one
Rau’shee Warren – Olympic boxer thinks he’s the chosen one
Ryan Sheckler – White pro skateboarder wants to follow the trend
Isaia Toeava – New Zealand rugby player holding it down for himself
Brandon Jennings – Will Lil’ Wayne sue for copyright infringement?
Richard Jefferson – Left his bride at the alter because he was in love with someone else…himself.
Mike Bibby – Like Jefferson, only the initials
Rajon Rondo – All bones + his initials
Lonny Baxter – Ex Maryland standout tattoos initals on arm
Advertisement Tattoo –
Marcin Gortat- Polish NBA player signed with Reebok because Jordan wouldn’t sign him. So he gets a tattoo of Jordan
Brad Miller – Picture of And1 logo because he wishes he can play like an And1 player
Rashard Lewis – Same stupid And1 tattoo
Matt Barnes – Same stupid And1 tattoo
Stephon Marbury – Does it count if the logo is your own logo?
Carmelo Anthony – Warner Brothers or West Baltimore. You Decide.
Jeremy Shockey – For a second I thought Shockey was Chinese, which is why I need this tattoo to remind me.
Danika Patrick – Checkered flag and American flag. It can’t be more Apple Pie than that.
Cherokee Parks – Technically 1/8th Native American, but don’t let it distract you from his non-existent career.
Chris Hovan – Defensive Tackle for the Vikings and Bucs. Loves the American flag
White players Tattoo who shouldn’t have tattoos
Robert Swift – The ex top 5 college recruit jumped straight to the NBA. He had a couple of bad years, really bad years and tattoos started popping up everywhere. Coach said to hit the gym, not the bong.
Kevin Pittsnogle – Was decent in college because he can shoot. Realized everyone can shoot in the NBA.
Chris Anderson – Drug use always drive players to get more tattoos. Here’s before and after the drugs got to him.
Josh Hamilton – I don’t like repeating, but crack is hell of a drug. Here’s before and after crack is in the system.
Sports / Team / Frat Tattoo
Michael Jordan – Bet you didn’t know the greatest player in basketball history had a tattoo on his left chest. It’s the symbol of Omega Psi Phi, the fraternity Jordan belonged to in North Carolina.
David West – Xavier’s only advertisement.
Jordan Campbell- USC football player tattoos USC on his arm. I want to see if Tommy Trojan is on the other arm.
Brigham Harwell – UCLA defensive tackle has a big Bruin on his arm.
Cover up Old Tattoo
Mike Bibby – Leg tattoo to constantly remind you what sport he plays and organization he belongs to. Look closely and it actually says something else. At least he changed by getting rid of his name on his arm.
Chauncey Billups – Does this not look like the Boston Celtics dude, the first team Chauncey played for?
Cartoon Character Tattoos
Allen Iverson and Rasheed Wallace – Iverson has a tattoo of a bulldog, probably referring to the Georgetown Hoyas. But Rasheed Wallace has the same exact one with some teddy bear on it??
Dennis Rodman and Reggie Miller – Dennis got it first and Reggie must have thought the bellybutton tattoo is pretty cool and blew the size up
Olympic Pride (Little too gay)
Michael Phelps – Michigan and Olympics tattoo…WHY??
Mark Foster – Swimmer…WHY????
Mike Andrew Brown – Canadian Swimmer…WHY???
Chris Hoy – British Cyclist…WHY???
Lorig Khatuna – American Archer…WHY???
Cesar Castro – Brazillian Diver…WHY???
Hugo Parisi – Brazillian Swimmer….WHY???
Andres Bayron Silva – Swimmer…WHY???
Stephen Jackson – After pleading guilty to gun charges, Stephen Jackson still pray to “Guns”
Marquis Daniels – “Only the strong survive” Does it really have to be a guy with a shotgun blowing himself up?
Just Downright Stupid
