About a year ago, Chris Bosh started the first stages of his back tattoo, going with some sort of theme that involves a craggly tree, Nordic imagery, music notes and a panther. Your guess is as good as mine on that combination. This summer, he got some more added to his back, sitting for hours and hours over the course of three days in Anguilla.
That brings his total time spent on his back tattoo to 40 hours, with another 20 or so to come. That’s two-and-a-half days worth of tattooing, you guys. Extravagant business tattoos take time. The full thing is above, and the detail is right here.
On the left, there are some Roman ruins. I’m guessing that’s because “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” or something like that. On the right, there is a woman eating a skull. Guessing again, but I’d surmise that’s because skulls are delicious. A little grainy, sure, but full of protein.
These new additions took 20-something hours, which means Chris had a lot of time to just sit around.
Smart guy that he is, he brought some movies.
It’s fun to guess which of these Chris picked, and which ones are for his wife. She’s not going to want to watch “Sanctum” eight times in a row, trust me. Off the top of my head, I’d say “True Grit,” “Sanctum,” “The Way Back,” “The Green Hornet,” and “Tron” are Chris picks. The others are for both of them, though I will say that “Gulliver’s Travels” is kind of borderline. Chris Bosh seems like he’d be a huge Jack Black fan.
But hey, when you’re lying on your stomach for hours and hours and hours, you’ve got to watch something. “Tall Justice” read-throughs get boring pretty quick.
