Tim Duncan now has a massive back tattoo

Saturday December 10th, 2016

For years, Twitter has been flooded with fantastic jokes poking fun at the seemingly boring life of Tim Duncan. We’ve quipped that the Big Fundamental drives just 1 mph over the speed limit, or even adds an extra cube of ice to his seltzer water to celebrate victories.

Well, it appears there is something loud about Duncan: his back.

We first noticed Duncan with a tattoo on his right shoulder in 2013–14, which grew into a yin yang gear-like tattoo last year.

Now, his tattoo runs all the way down his back. It is MASSIVE.

​Maybe trips to the tattoo parlor will become a regular part of Timmy’s retirement. We hope so, because that thing is awesome.
