Flash to 2011 and I've come to realize an incredibly large amount of professional basketball players are very heavily tattooed. Example: Lebron James, take a closer look instead of that zoomed out perspective most sports are watched in. James actually has thousands of dollars of tattoos on him, even more than Rodman.
I guess this trend came along with all the of rappers and other musicians doing the same recently. I just found it interesting that the trend silently slipped in, partly because of the lack of color work in the tattoos, which makes them less noticeable and well the lack of brightly colored hair probably helps too.
