American baller Lonzo Ball will have a new look when he takes the court with the New Orleans Pelicans this season and it won’t be just the jersey.


Tattoo artist Steve Butcher unveiled the former Lakers’ new sleeve tattoo in an Instagram video recently. He said the tat, which wraps around Ball’s left arm in stunning detail, is 99 per cent healed according to Complex.

It features the portraits of Civil Rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, Kenyan American 44th president of the United States Barack Obama, abolitionist and antislavery activist Harriet Tubman, civil rights activist Rosa Parks and MLB icon Jackie Robinson.

The Southern California-based artist has done portraits of Randy Moss, Vince Carter, Thanos and Kawhi Leonard winning the NBA title.

He shared a closer look at the Robinson tattoo a few weeks ago before the bruising subsided. The 21-year-old Ball showed off the bottom half of the sleeve in June featuring portraits of Obama, Tubman and Parks. It was also part of his first-team photoshoot with the Pelicans last month.

It’s the opposite arm sleeve he had re-done in March after he cut ties with Big Baller Brand co-founder Alan Foster. Ball had the logo on his right arm re-worked into dice with the numbers 1, 2 and 3. It was presumably for the numbers he and his brothers wear. “Born 2 Ball” is written down his arm next to it with a star backdrop.

At the top near the 21-year-old’s shoulder reads ‘The Marathon Continues’, a tribute to the late rapper Nipsey Hussle who would have turned 34 on his birthday last week. As reported by The Sauce, the Grammy-nominated rapper was gunned down on the 31st of March 2019 outside his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles.
