Basketball player Jason Terry reportedly got inked with a tattoo of the Larry O’Brien Trophy as a way to motivate himself and his teammates. But getting the tattoo may have been only temporary.
33-year old Jason Terry said he got the tattoo on his right biceps for superstitious reasons, but will have it removed if the Mavericks don’t beat The Heat in the NBA Finals.
“I definitely know that it will hurt worse if I have to take this thing off than it did putting it on,” Terry said Sunday after the Mavericks wrapped up their final practice before boarding their flight to Miami.
He said he would consider the tattoo bad luck if the Mavericks lost their first championship.
Plastic surgery recovery takes time and the tattoo may never completely disappear.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It will be difficult for Jason Terry to remove his tattoo. He can try to fade it with a laser or chemical peels; however, he will also end up fading the skins pigment around the tattoo. There will always be some remnant of the tattoo regardless of how he tries to fade or disguise it.”
The Mavericks won, so time will tell if the tattoo comes off…
