    College Basketball players and Tattoos

    Do what ever you want to you body I dont care, I have no problem with a little ink and think the right tats are neat. But if I dont hire you because you have ink from head to toe dont be ****** at me. Anyway, how do these college kids pay for all their tattoos? Some of these guys have thousands and thousands of dollars in tattoos on their bodies.

    Re: College Basketball players and Tattoos

    I have thought the same thing. Also, what are some people thinking when they get them. I can just imagine the conversation at the tattoo parlor:

    "Hey, I'd like to get a giant tattoo on my upper arm"
    "what would you like?"
    "Something real important, like a basketball with a crown over it so people know it's the king in my world...or a flaming skull so people know I like flames and skulls...or a cartoon character!"
    "Yeah, I can do those. And I am sure you'll never regret this either...."

    I am all for tattoos but I always thought they should be for something special, something that will never change since it will be forever, a cartoon character just never seemed to cut it for me...


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    I don't mind tats much either but seriously...it's starting to be a bit much.

    Re: College Basketball players and Tattoos

    Well the league minimum for the NBA is 15 tats, so if they want to get into the league they have to start when they turn 18.

    I was thinking the same thing when I saw Cousins for Kentucky tonight, that kid has ink all over both arms and on his chest. That being said, as long as it isn't on his neck they're easy enough to cover up, and if he is going to play in the NBA I doubt they would be a reason why a team wouldn't draft him.

    I have not saw a player yet that has more ink than a freshman on the Okalhoma BB team, his face is the only visable place he doesnt have tats.

    Delonte West had a lot of tats even when he played for St. Joes.

    Re: College Basketball players and Tattoos

    Totally off subject, but has anyone noticed that in the corner of the floor (right on the end of the bench) of each game, there is a college logo? The floor is Salt Lake has the Utah logo, the floor in Houston has the Rice logo, and the floor in St. Louis had the Valley logo on one end, but a different one (can't remember which) at the other?

    Does anyone know why those logos are on the floor, or what purpose they serve, if they serve a purpose at all?

    I think it is who is hosting the tourny for those games. In St L the MoVally is on the floor.

    those would be host schools for the sites the games are at. Rice or Utah's athletic dept (sports info or media relations) would help staff the event. provide the people at the scorer's table, runners, etc.
