Jerry Tarkanian, the former UNLV coach who led the Runnin' Rebels to the 1990 national championship, died last week at 84. Several players from that team honored their coach by getting matching tattoos. 

Larry Johnson, a two-time All-America selection who was taken with the first pick of the 1991 NBA draft, shared a few photos of his old teammates getting their new ink.

Stacey Augmon, another member of the team who was an eventual first-round pick, also shared a few pictures. 

Tarkanian's funeral was on Monday. The lights of the Las Vegas strip will dim on Wednesday night as a tribute.
