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.

If you're going to get a dumb tattoo like this one, at least go to a professional that can accurately depict the image in which you are having inked to your body for a lifetime. This doesn't even look like LeBron to me. What an idiot. Sad to say, probably not the biggest mistake he'll ever make in his lifetime. Dumbass....
