Odell Beckham Jr. is giving Sports Illustrated some free brand exposure with his latest tattoo. 

Beckham recently posted an Instagram story of a new tattoo that appears to incorporate the July 7, 1997 cover of Sports Illustrated. The cover depicts Mike Tyson biting the ear of Evander Holyfield in a June 28, 1997 fight, which just celebrated its 20th anniversary. 

The Giants wide receiver's tattoo also features Lil Wayne and Bob Marley. Beckham already has a tattoo of Michael Jackson on his calf, and he has other tattoos featuring Tupac and Muhammad Ali. 

Beckham's Instagram story of his tattoo already disappeared, but here's a look at a side-by-side of his new ink with the original SI cover.

Unfortunately Beckham's tattoo doesn't include a link to our 2012 oral history of the Tyson–Holyfield "bite fight," but you should read that anyway.
