Kevin Durantâ€™s massive body art is impossible to see while heâ€™s wearing an NBA uniform. Â Last week a picture of Kevin without his jersey on came out & had the web buzzing.
Some have described the placement as â€œbusiness tattoos,â€ Â andÂ Darnell Mayberry ofÂ The Oklahoman explains thatÂ â€œDurant confirmed the deliberate placement of his designs following a practice in early May when the Thunder was in a Western Conference semifinals series with Memphis.â€
Check the pic and meaning after the jump…
The majority of Durant’s tats are inspirational sayings in the form of scripture or names and images that pay homage to his family and hometown.
Inscribed at the bottom of the right side of his stomach, Durant has â€œWalk by faith not by sight,â€ coming from 2 Corinthians 5:7. Immediately above that is a cross. Directly above the cross is another scripture, this one adopted from Proverbs 15:33, which reads, â€œThe fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.â€
On the left side of his stomach, Durant has an image of a house, which he once told me was the home he grew up in. In front of the house is a boy wearing a No. 35 jersey dribbling a basketball. And above his belly button, Durant, a suburbanÂ Washington, D.C.Â native, has theÂ Washington Nationals’ squiggly red â€œW’â€ insignia.
