Kobe & Michael Jordan: INSANE Athlete Tattoos From Elite Ink Artist

Exclusive Details

If you bleed Kobe Bryant ... or Michael Jordan ... or Mike Tyson ... or any sports legend, there's a tattoo artist in New Zealand who's become the go-to guy for hyper realistic tats of the biggest sports stars in the world.

His name is Steve Butcher ... and for the past 6 years he's been churning out some of the most detailed sports-centric tats we've ever seen.

"I'm just a huge sports fan especially NBA so I just want to do tattoos of what I'm interested in and it's rad because a lot of other people share the same interest so it makes for a fun tattoo for both of us!"

Butcher says the Kobe tat took him roughly 10 hours ... but if ya ask us, it's worth it for a lifetime of awesome arm ink.
