Tattoo Porn: NBA Baller J.R. Smith Opens Up About His Addiction to Ink

JR Smith has made a name for himself for dropping game-winning shots for the New York Knicks, as well as being probably the most tatted-up player in the league. The 27-year-old is also rumored to be the on again/off again (even we can hardly keep up) boy-toy of R&B singer, K. Michelle. Smith recently sat down with the New York Times to discuss his body art. And because we have a thing for men and ink, we couldn’t resist sharing. Peep a few excerpts of his interview.

On what his first ever tattoo was:

“A picture of me dunking. I was 15. Me and my sister both got one.”

On how many tattoos he remembers having before he lost count:

“It was around 70-something.”

On if he has a thought process in deciding what tattoos to get:

“No, I never know what I’m going to get until I get to the tattoo parlor.”

On the amount of tattoo parlors he’s been to:

“Probably a thousand. I’ve been to so many where I didn’t get a tattoo. Sometimes I watch or go in to see what’s new. It really depends on how I feel.”
