I have to imagine that there aren’t too many times you can actually use a finger mustache tattoo. But it looks like after throwing down a dunk in a charity basketball game at your alma mater is a pretty good reason to ‘stache things up. In fact, I’d argue it’s one of the best times to do such a thing. If you have a finger mustache tattoo, after a dunk is the perfect time. It’s in the finger mustache handbook that everyone gets after they get the tattoo.
Basically what I’m saying is — step your finger mustache tattoo game up, Chris Andersen.

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.

Chris Bosh is just one of the players who has been in China with Nike Basketball for the past week. Yesterday, he tweeted a link to a video on his WhoSay account of a fan in China asking him about that massive back tattoo that has been a work in progress over the past two seasons.
Check the video, but here’s what Bosh had to say about his sizable back piece.
Bosh: I mean it’s ummm … I like art. You know, so it was pretty much just a collage of everything that I like and a lot of it, all of it has meaning. A lot of history. My history, it’s my history. Everything has, you know … it’s not done yet. It’s a work in progress, so people are “Ohh, what’s that? It’s ugly.”
Interviewer: Is there a little spot open for the NBA championship trophy?
Bosh: Yeah, I mean, it worked for Jason Terry. I might as well do it too.
Nice. I enjoy the joke about Terry. However, I do have to ask, what part of his history does the skull-eating woman represent? I know he’s recently been in court over this “Basketball Wives” drama with his ex, but damn. I wouldn’t wish skull-eating women on anyone.

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.
