Kobe Bryant got a new tattoo in honor of his two daughters, and he posted his new ink on Instagram for all of his followers to see. The 34-year-old has never been much of a talker, unless it was a post-game rant in the locker room, but, ever since he’s joined Twitter, “The Black Mamba” has been sharing his views with everyone.
The move to social media has given fans a chance to see Kobe Bryant as a regular guy and not just a five-time NBA champion and future Hall of Famer. The Lakers’ superstar has taken Twitter and Instagram in stride, and he regularly posts photos and updates throughout the day.
On May 14th, Bryant tweeted that he was “thinking about getting a little more ink,” and he obviously stuck to the plan as he posted the photo of his new tattoo this past weekend. He even posted a photo on Instagram of himself sitting in the chair as the work was being done on his right arm.
Kobe Bryant’s new tattoo displays a cursive font with the names of both of his daughters, Gianna and Natalia. He eventually went on to re-post his new ink on Twitter that has since been shared over 1,500 times. If one thing’s for sure, it’s that Bryant will always have his daughters with him no matter where he goes or how far away he is.
Tons of fans commented on the post and shared their thoughts on the new ink, most of which were compliments. Over 90,000 followers liked the photo on Instagram, and the tattoo doesn’t look to have any spelling mistakes, which became a hot topic with Kevin Durant’s new back piece.
Here’s the Twitter post that Bryant sent out to all of his 2.6 million followers on Saturday.
