Matt Kemp has all the money in the world. As a professional baseball player in the month of January, he also has all the time in the world. As such, baseball players tend to do things like get enormous tattoos paying tribute to their grandparents.

Which is exactly what Matt Kemp did. The results, as you can see, are somewhat spectacular. When the tattoo artist (on his website) praises Kemp’s “strong session” he pays tribute to Kemp’s very high pain tolerance, as a heavily-shaded piece like this would hurt probably hurt. A lot.

Puts the whole “ran into a wall and exploded his shoulder but kept playing” thing in perspective a little.
