Witness the Media Day carnage that is one Wizards guard DeShawn Stevenson.
DeShawn Stevenson showed up with a new look -- on his face! He has a tattoo of the Pittsburgh Pirates "P" on his left cheek, but it's backwards, so it looks like a "9" when he's not looking in the mirror. The name of his son, Londyn, is on the side of his hairline. He also has a crack inked on the top of his forehead because "I don’t crack. I feel like people always try to break me, but I don’t crack. So, I put that there."Nice look on the new Abe Lincoln neck tattoo also. Abolitionists, FTW!
Stevenson also gave another explanation of the backward "P" on his face, again explaining that he was a fan of the Pirates and Barry Bonds growing up. But why is it backward?
"The tattoo artist said I'm looking at it [in a mirror] I can read it," he said. "I don't care about nobody else. It's my life, it's my face. I'm looking at it. So it's a P. I like looking at myself, everybody know that."
Long as the guy plays solid perimeter D, I really couldn't care less, but it amazes me that folks don't think longterm before they impulsively get inked up like this.
Then again, at least Stevenson doesn't have his baby mama's lips tattooed on his neck. That might actually be worse.
Question: Do you have tatts? If so, please explain the attraction, cause I just don't get it.
