Fear the beard, or tattoo it on your leg.

With the help of New Zealand tattoo artist Steve Butcher, one fan took his affinity for James Harden and his thick facial hair to another level with a portrait of the Houston Rockets star tattooed onto his calf.

According to Butcher's Instagram post, the tattoo took six hours to complete—which almost sounds like an understatement given the detail on that scraggly beard.
