LeBron James is honoring Kobe Bryant with a brand-new tattoo that says "Mamba 4 Life."

TMZ Sports reported: "Both LeBron and Anthony Davis hit up tattoo artist Vanessa Aurelia on Wednesday looking to pay tribute to Kobe with some fresh ink."

James had written "Mamba 4 Life" on his sneakers last Saturday for the game where he passed Bryant on the all-time scoring list.

Bryant, his daughter Gianna, Ara Zobayan, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Alyssa Altobelli, Sarah Chester, Payton Chester and Christina Mauser died Sunday in a helicopter crash in Southern California.
