While we got our first real glimpse at Kevin Durant’s ink during the playoffs, it looks like he’s been logging some serious hours in the tattoo shop during these summer months. With all of the traveling he’s been doing to play at every streetball court known to man, he’s been using his down time to get some pretty elaborate pieces finished.
Last night, @TattoosByRandy tweeted these photos of the work he had finished on Durant’s back. Below the words Maryland is an angel holding a basketball with hands signaling a 3 and 5 on either side. Durant wears No. 35 for his former AAU coach Charles Craig who was shot and killed on April 30th, 2005 at the age of 35.
It’s definitely a huge tattoo, but it’s one filled with a lot of meaning. From his coach to his hometown, Durant continues to make it clear that he isn’t about to forget where he came from or who helped him get to where he is today.
