Stoudemire is heavily inked himself with a scripture of Mathew 20:16 on his chest and the words ‘Black Jesus’ on his next to name just a few.
Considering it was the first time the NBA All-Star had a needle in his hand, BangBang was reportedly impressed with his work.

Darts star Simon Whitlock was defeated in the Semi-Finals of the Ladbrokes World Darts Championships, but this was probably a good thing for his body after revealing the unique way of celebrating each win at the Championships.
The Aussie, who is nicknamed the ‘Wizard of Oz’, will get a tattoo for every win while participating in the championships at his favourite tattoo parlour in Portsmouth.
Whitlock, who was knocked out by eventually runner up Andy Hamilton, lives opposite the tattoo parlour and was hoping to add an image of the trophy to his body if we had won the biggest tournament in the darting calendar.
If he had won the tournament, Whitlock would have had more tattoos than David Beckham.
The Wizard was playing through the pain barrier with a screw holding his broken left ankle together and was so close to being in the biggest game of his career.

Emmet Bentley, a bartender at The James Joyce, has been the first person to publicly state that he has got the tattoo but now his challenge is to let the big man know.
Bentley signed up to twitter in order to get the O’Neal’s attention, however still no word from the basketball player as to wether the bartender is the first.
While trying to get O’Neal’s attention, he tweeted: “@SHAQ $1000 please. Thanks!!”

A woman from Los Angeles has been the brunt of a social network battering on the world wide web for her dedication to her favourite RnB star.
For some reason the young woman loved Drake so much that she had his name tattooed on to her forehead.
The man who was responsible for tattooing the design was Kevin Campbell from Los Angeles tattoo shop Will Rise, who in an interview with various online publications has stated he had no idea that drake was an RnB star.
Campbell actual thought it was her partner or something to do with her family. He then even went on to criticise the font she choose and admitting he tried to persuade her to get the tattoo on some where else, even making the size of the tattoo smaller on the printed out version, only to be told she wanted to go even bigger.
Is this the most dedicated fan in the world? who is she?
