The first time I went to get a tattoo, my words were: “Yes, yes, I’ll just do one, just to prove how it is.” The tattoo artist looked at me and burst out laughing … “What the fuck are you laughing at?”
Eh, he was right. When you start you can hardly stop. I had to stop at the third by force. Unfortunately, the tattoo artist got my writing wrong and therefore I don’t have time to do another one. I’m too busy trying to dodge my friends’ taunts. But as the lawyer Buffa would say: «Well, but this, gentlemen, this is a whole other story…».
But let’s get back to us. What I meant is that almost everyone, with the exception of the undersigned Miss MaiNaGioia, will be enticed, once one tattoo is finished, to get another one right away. They are a bit like cherries or pistachios. This is because society increasingly instigates us to make ourselves as original and unique as possible. Except perhaps for those of “It’s all a balance above madness …” or those of the infinity symbol. In fact, some tattoo artists should only thank Vasco for life, since if it weren’t for him they would all be peeling potatoes for a living.
So, if even we mere mortals feel the need to get noticed, because we feel that the only compliments of the grandmother are not enough for us anymore, let alone people who are in the spotlight in tank tops and shorts for a thousand and more games a year, as the players. NBA. Obviously, it is not a speech that concerns everyone. There are in fact “clean” players who don’t need tattoos to get noticed. Like John Stockton and Steve Nash.
(I never have the kleenex on hand when I need it)
I wipe away my tears and we start with a roundup of the most absurdly beautiful and weird ink works displayed on the NBA floor.
DeShawn Stevenson’s Abraham Lincoln
Slavery and racism
“There is a physical difference between the black and white race which I believe will forever prevent the two races from living together in terms of social and political equality. And since they cannot coexist in this way, as long as they remain together there must be the upper and lower positions, and I, like everyone else, am in favor of the upper position being assigned to the white race. ‘
Do you know who said this sentence? It starts with M and ends with alvini. Exactly good: Abraham Lincoln. He who abolished slavery. And also the one who is tattooed on DeShawn Stevenson’s neck.

Now, I am not speaking about the historical-political question: first, because I am a coward and, second, because I know about history as much as Gianni Sperti knows about the Israeli-Palestinian question. I’m just saying that I would have appreciated more if he had tattooed – I don’t know – a verse of the song that Edoardo Vianello brought to Sanremo in ’63. Much more inherent.
Tastes, however. Why he added the five alongside, I’ll spare you.
Kenyon Martin’s lips
Wives, ex-wives, crowns
For the category “No, oh well, Maria, I’m going out” there is him: Kenyon Martin.
He had tattooed what even among the terrorists at Men & Women is no longer in fashion, the lips of the ex-wife. I wrote “she got a tattoo” because of course they got divorced, then. And I would like to see well: I too would have divorced after seeing him. But anyway, since that tattoo works as a repellent for women almost as much as taking your nerdy friend in the Slayer shirt to a party, what did our Kenyon do? One more Camaro has been made above: the crown. Oh well.
Andrei Kirilenko’s incomprehensible tattoo
World of Warcraft fan?
Andrej Kirilenko, sober like me after a bottle of vodka, is done ‘this thing. And what is it, you say? And who knows? In my eye, he is a winged knight riding a dragon, but the direction suggests that he is a World of Warcraft character. Luckily at least he’s a really nice guy, otherwise, hottie couldn’t even see it with binoculars.
White Russian for everyone.
Kevin Durant and religion
Gigi Datome or Jesus?
Kevin Durant, beautiful de mamma. He is a good guy and has no visible tattoos, at least when he plays. Only once has he carelessly lifted his tank top and left the world perplexed and astonished. Skulls, swastikas, inverted crosses, etc.
But go, I’m kidding: only religious symbols for our Oklahoma man. And behind, on the back, beautiful in size, there is the big face of our national Gigi and a part of the Gospel. That I do not know what c’azzecchino together, but so be it.
Among other things, a careful eye will notice that the word “Mature” (after all) was actually written to Luca Giurato, “Mature”. How do I understand you, Kevin? Welcome to the club.
The optimist to the rescue
Before the 2015 Finals
But he takes the first place, not a player, not a fan, but him … the optimist par excellence. I’m sure you’ve seen these tattoos millions of times already on the internet right after the Finals, but in my opinion, it’s a wonderful thing. And like all wonderful things, it needs to be remembered every now and then.

The first time I saw him, I have to be honest, I envied him. Yes, because if I had even half the confidence and optimism with which he faces life, I would be a happy woman. Full of ugly tattoos, maybe, but happy.
