Not every athlete is card-carrying VIP customer at Inka Dinka Doo, but there are plenty of guys whose tattoos are almost as much a part of their public image as the number on their jersey.
An athlete's tattoos move out of the realm of "afterthought" when a particularly striking, weird, hilariously awful or personally meaningful piece of body art grabs our attention; or when the sheer number of tats sets them apart from the standard "barbed wire" arm band.
A true test of your super-fan credentials is showing that you can match the ink to the dude.
If you are as familiar with a player's body art as you are with his career stats, then you can definitely count yourself as being an absolute fanatic—or someone who has spent way too much time looking at another person's skin.
Can you guess who goes with the tattoo? Good luck and...yikes these are bad.
