Basketball Tattoos

Basketball tattoos became popular among players and fans of the sport in the mid-1990ís and have been a continued trend for many, including amateur and professional league players alike. The buzz began after several players of the N.B.A. (National Basketball Association) began decorating their own bodies with highly visable tattoos. One of the most unforgettable icons known for his eye-catching basketball tattoos is Dennis Rodman, a former Chicago Bulls team member. Since then, many other players have also embraced the art of tattooing and have chosen to position their body art where it is visible while playing on the court: Shaquille OíNeal, Carmelo Anthony, Raja Bell, Cherokee Parks, Jason Williams and Allen Iverson among others.

Basketball Tattoo Ideas
There are many fun and interesting designs to choose from when looking for basketball tattoos. Many people generally choose to use various colors to decorate their basketball tattoos, however, it is not uncommon to also see some of these designs tattooed in black and white ink.

Symbols of the game:
Some of the most popular ideas for basketball tattoos target specific symbols of the game by using objects such as nets and basketballs. Basketball images are commonly seen with flames surrounding the ball and may also be drawn to appear as though the ball has itís own facial expression. Other popular basketball tattoos feature a basketball positioned on a pedestal or setting on top of a crown. Net designs often use images of basketballs entering the netódesigns which also commonly use flames to surround the basketball or the hoop.

Team logos:
Designs of team logos are also popular selections for basketball tattoos. Those individuals who are looking to make a bold statement will often combine a teamís logo with the teamís name. Team logos consisting of animals are typically drawn to portray fierce animal images.

Player portraits:
Some basketball fans will opt for an image of their favorite player. These particular basketball tattoos sometimes feature realistic portraits of the player but are most often drawn as caricatures. Tattoos of basketball players in action generally portray the player dribbling or shooting a basketball.

Playerís numbers:
Many basketball fans opt for the image of a specific playerís team number. Although some people prefer to tattoo a players number so that it stands alone, most people will choose to have the number written on the image of a basketball or on the image of a jersey.
