Kevin Durant Doesn’t See The Big Deal Over His “Business Tattoos”

Kevin Durant is a smart guy and he is self conscious.

He made a strategic decision to hide his tattoos because he knows how in general that can be perceived. He has a solid image and he is trying to protect that.

It is sad that he has to hide the tats, because of people stereotyping him, but that is the society we live in. Since the cat is out of the big here are what the tats mean.

Inscribed at the bottom of the right side of his stomach, Durant has “Walk by faith not by sight,” coming from 2 Corinthians 5:7. Immediately above that is a cross. Directly above the cross is another scripture, this one adopted from Proverbs 15:33, which reads, “The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.”

On the left side of his stomach, Durant has an image of a house, which he once told me was the home he grew up in. In front of the house is a boy wearing a No. 35 jersey dribbling a basketball. And above his belly button, Durant, a suburban Washington, D.C. native, has the Washington Nationals’ squiggly red “W'” insignia.

I am guilty of this, but people try to put Kevin Durant in a box because he does appear to be different than your normal NBA superstar, but we have to remember that it isn’t the tats, the clothes or the tweets that determine the man, it is their actions.

So I see Durant the same as I did before the tats.

He is still the Jordin Sparks of the NBA to me.

  1. I initially transfered to South Florida 5 year or soes ago (2007). I settled down here for about 9 months at that time and continued to straggle around the country. Within a year of deserting I decided to come back for good, it was the fishing that called me back. There’s is absolutely nothing like it, if you have never ever fished South Florida before long you are missing out– that simple.
