It's apparently "tattoo day" here at Eye On Basketball. If you want to read a thoughtful exploration of what getting inked means for an NBA superstar like Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant, click here. If you simply want to see a ridiculous tattoo of Miami Heat forward LeBron James' face on a fan's leg, keep reading.

A man whose Twitter account identifies him as Nathan Blackhall of South Florida posted the following picture on Twitpic. It shows the back of one of his legs with a giant depiction of a smug looking James, complete with oversized headband and receding hairline.

Blackhall sent the image to James, who shared it with his 2.2 million followers. James also added, "Oh damn! That's how u feel. I appreciate the love."

Explaining his decision to get James' mug on his leg, Blackhall noted on Twitter that James is "my [favorite] player and [basketball] idol" and that the tattoo is "a symbol of one of my favorite stars and future Hall of Famer."

I'm all for self-expression, but this is a little weird.

Those of you that don't like the tattoo; cool.  It's not yours, so you don't have to worry about it.

The man wanted LBJ on his calf; so be it.

Get a life (you know who you are)

 Wow... that's all I can say about this tattoo. Pretty sad. LeBron is a great player, but that's taking it too far, wayyyy too far.

It does not really even look like Lebron to me.  If someone had made me guess i would have thought it was Josh Smith!  I have heard of idol worship but I have yet to meet anyone that would convince me to get a tatoo of him on my leg.  Its not only the fact that its another man, its just reminds me of a stalker.  Besides tatoos hurt like hell!

I remember a friend of mine once tattooed his GF's name on his chest... two weeks later she left him.

This is crazy indeed.

Another moron gets a stupid tattoo.  How much you want to bet this roundmouth gets someone to talk him into getting Dwayne Wade on his other leg?  Ignorance is plentiful in this country, this guy is living proof.

Even the tattoo has the same blank stare that LBJ gets every May.  No warrior mentality in real life and still a dead fish on this loser's leg.  Hilarious.
