Kobe Bryant may have since restored his image to its rightful place among the NBA elite, but the Los Angeles Lakers guard had some major publicity damage control to complete after his fateful night in Eagle, Colorado.
However, the party to whom Bryant owed the most was not his vast fanbase, but rather his wife, Vanessa.
This explains Bryant's tattoo on his right arm: a crown featured above his wife's name, with two angel wings underneath accompanying a Psalm inscription.
The ink, which Bryant got after the Colorado incident, shows an obvious attempt at declaring his marital devotion. Still, this decision, combined with the one that landed Vanessa Bryant a $4 million ring, reeks a bit of desperation. Sure, the ring was supposedly commissioned two weeks before Bryant was arrested, but the timing still seems fishy.
For the record, Bryant also has his daughter's name tattooed on his left arm.
