Ent Misbehavin’: Monta Ellis Got A Mythical Tree Tattooed On His Chest

Granted, Golden State Warriors guard Monta Ellis’ brand new tattoo lacks the panache and overt mythological-fantasy epic bent of Andrei Kirilenko’s super awesome and ginormous “Paladin Riding A Dragon” back tattoo, but  if you look at his new chest tattoo from a perspective that is a tad askew, while it appears to represent a family tree, it could be argued that instead of that boring reason, it is a tattooed homage to an Ent, the speaking tree beings from Lord of the Rings. Perhaps it’s even Treebeard. But where are Treebeard’s human-like qualities? Who knows, but it is this blogger’s opinion that the tattoo artist totally botched this one. If it was meant to be Treebeard, that is. Which very well could have been the plan all along. Or not, but possibly. Okay, fine. It’s not. But it would have been cooler if it had been.

    When “these guys” get old they will look ridiculous? Same as the people who elongate their skulls? facial tat’s from still functioning tribes all over the world? scars done on purpose to gain a higher level or mark your tribe? when will people get that “we guys” whom cover ourselves with skin art, choose to do so and to us or me at least, it’s a harmless hobbie. I’m a white collar worker covered from neck to toe, but i can still wear a suit and run business circles around your head so fast, your money will be in my pocket as profit in no time. so keep judging “these guys”, some of us are not as stupid as you think we look. Dumba$$, get a clue and wake up to live life. btw, I don’t drink do drugs or any other stupid man made crap, tat’s are my vice and love. so leave us guys alone to make our millions and retire fully tatted and happy as hell. at least I am, 39. 5 houses around the world and guess what? I came here on a boat from Cuba. so f off with your judgements
