Austin Rivers Breaks Down His Tattoos | GQ


In high school, Houston Rockets point guard Austin Rivers used to listen to Wiz Khalifa to get pumped up before getting a new tattoo. So really, all of his ink is Wiz Khalifa's fault. From the first tattoo he got in the ninth grade to the Jesus Christ tattoo (that may look a little like Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean) on his arm, the NBA star breaks down all of his ink.

    "Curses while talking about tattos" claimes to be a religious guy.

What blind fools..ive heard men who live in absoulte evil claim to give glory to God and pray to God.. What deceived and helpless people they are

    Tattoos should only be for you no explanation needed. People who tattoo themselves to look cool or just because everyone else is doing it is the wrong thing to do. Guys like Lonzo and kuzma are perfect examples of tattooing to fit in. They look ridiculous on them.
