Who Gets Basketball Tattoos?

First, these days, we often see basketball (NBA) players themselves sporting all manner of ink. Rarely, we see a basketball player without a tattoo, since tattoos sit soundly in the mainstream right now. Although these sports stars don’t always get tattoos directly involved with their love of and participation in the game, it’s worth mentioning the sheer volume of players who are heavily inked up. At any rate, this is a culture, unlike many, that’s extremely accepting of people being heavily inked within it.

Anyways, besides the players, avid fans consider basketball designs. Both men and women rock some sick basketball related ink. Along with fans, people who played on teams in their younger years or those who simply love to hit their neighborhood court every night all love basketball tattoos.

Types of Basketball Tattoos

Secondly, there are plenty of ways one can integrate the imagery of basketball into a tattoo based on the sport. While quite a few of such tattoos actually involve an image of the orange ball, very often, it’s in conjunction with another image to make more of a statement or a piece. As a result, the passion within the people who get basketball tattoos is clearly worn on their skin. In example, people choose the word “love” and replace the letter “O” with the image of a ball. Others morphed the basketball from a round shape into a heart.

Additionally, some basketball tattoos help their wearers remember: reminders of someone who loved or played the game that no longer visits the court. Other, still reverent basketball designs, work a Biblical passage or otherwise moving quote into their art. Some basketball tattoos include a set of praying hands, indicating the wearer’s spiritual life and love of both the game and their faith.

A subset of basketball designs show the motion of the ball flying through the air. Sometimes, these tattoos include flames or “swooshing” air. Many basketball designs also show the hoop and net and occasionally, even the backboard. A shattering backboard makes a compelling statement in a basketball tattoo.

Team Tattoos

Along with that, player names work well as tattoos. Most notably, Michael Jordan and his Nike-sponsored likeness Air Jordan, grace the skin of many. People love to show support for the Chicago Bulls, but the love includes every other team on the planet. Additionally, people choose college basketball designs.
