Seimone Augustus wears her heart on her sleeve

Tattoos and the NBA go together like peanut butter and jelly, where ink-free ballers are the exception. But Google “WNBA players and tattoos” and just a handful of decorated women pop up, including Los Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker (“To whom much is given, much is expected” on her wrist) and New York Liberty’s Cappie Pondexter (the WNBA logo emblazoned with the words “The Future” on her shoulder). Still, their quotes and symbols pale in comparison to Minnesota Lynx guard Seimone Augustus’ massive arm sleeve, a tranquil freestyle landscape of water, flowers and her beloved mother’s moniker. She may have transformed herself into a 6-foot tall canvas, but each of her tats holds special meaning — enough so that she is not worried she’ll look back in 20 years with inky remorse. (We can’t expect the same of the Jazz’s Andrei Kirilenko and his lats-spanning “World of Warcraft” homage or Allen Iverson’s “Money Bagz”-covered hand.)

    Very cool. I can’t say I’d ever get a tattoo myself (needles, ugh), but I respect those who do it with thought and heart. I love hearing the stories behind them.

  2. Perhaps, Candace Parker loves tattoo. Since, every on her tattoo has a special meaning so that it makes sense at all. But for me I don’t know if I will consider putting tattoo now maybe in the future.
