Guess the Pistons player by their tattoos

New, comment

Pistons took part in a tattoo photo shoot while also opening up about the inspiration for their ink.

The Detroit Pistons, like many NBA teams, have many players with many tattoos. However, MLive recently held a photo shoot where the players showed off their ink and told the personal stories ranging from hometown roots, faith, family members to an evil doll named Chucky.

Yes. Chucky.

Anyway, the piece is inspired and great and fans should definitely check it out. The feature consists of player images, tattoos, dates of said tattoo and the inspiration.

However, I wanted to have a little fun and see if Pistons fans could guess the players by the tattoos on display. I've covered faces and numbers as appropriate, and some are definitely easier than others. '

Of course, I wish MLive would have thought of this last year so I could finally learn what Greg Monroe's chest tattoo was.
