Chris Andersen’s new skull tattoo is a little disturbing, even for him


I am not one to be put off by someone’s choice of body art and manipulation. Heck, I live in Long Beach, CA, about as inked a city as you will find in the nation.

But the Birdman Chris Andersen’s new skull tattoo — skulls and the words “give me war” —made me do a double take.

I appreciate Andersen’s dedication to being a canvas for the artform, and that he was running out of places on his body that could get covered with more ink. But damn.

I would love to see Pat Riley’s reaction.

It’s just the Birdman being the Birdman.
