Chris Bosh's Insane Back Tattoo

The NBA lockout gives players a chance to pursue some of their passions. LeBron James is brushing up on his NFL commentator skills. Dwyane Wade is designing watches. Chris Bosh is busy flying tattoo artists to far-away islands to add to the ever-growing montage of nightmarish images he calls a back tattoo.

Bosh had his favorite tattoo team fly to Miami on Friday to add to the work, but then decided he'd rather get inked somewhere a little more exotic. According to his tattoo artist's blog, he put his posse on a jet and flew them to the Viceroy Hotel in Anguilla.

The tattoo artist then spent the next three days inking up Bosh's back. Here are the results:

The tattoo isn't quite finished yet. It still needs about 20 hours of work to complete, but Bosh hopes to have it finished off in time for the start of the season. Assuming there is one. If not, maybe Bosh will have time to get that ice cream tattoo we've always secretly wished he wanted.
