Paul Pierce’s New ‘The Truth’ Tattoo

You know the story behind the moniker, and now you have a gloriously garish visual representation of it. Pierce sent the image out via Twitter this morning:

    Eh, not feeling the dice for his number, but I get it. Otherwise, pretty dope. Guess he’s finishing his career in Boston?

    Nice, and at the tender age of 33.

  • wouldnt u like to know

    So many wrongs wit this tatt, the “U” looks like V, the clover has too many leaves, he shouldnt have gotten it on his forearm and hes gonna be a mere image of the “Truth” n 3 yrs tops.

  • Sparty’s Law

    It would be pretty funny if he got traded.

  • Marcos

    Guess he won’t finish his career back home in L.A. after all.

    @wouldnt, apparently you’ve never heard of a four-leaf clover?

  • Noel

    @Seth maybe he was thinking more of the Celtics’ logo (not a four leaf clover)?

  • thomas

    @t-sizzle, your effin funny!!!!

    I’m not sure I’m liking the dice – hope he’s not suggesting gambling. As a pro baskeball player not a good thing to endorse. Altough I know it’s part of the ‘NBA culture’ I just don’t like tats in general.

    @TBRK: Nope, he had another one on the inside of the same forearm I think. I’m pretty sure it was that same dagger logo that was on his shoe a couple years ago.

  • The Fresh Prince of Nsam

    One of the reasons I liked PP was he has no tatoos… So much 4 dat…

  • CeltsKG5

    @The Fresh Prince of Nsam: He’s got a big one on his back too.

  • Robb

    He needs a disabled symbol tattoo.

    Nowhere near the same level as DeShawn Stevenson’s Abe Lincoln throat tattoo or JR Smith’s “Young Money” on the Adam’s apple. They came in the league before you man, you should have ran out of space a long time ago–step your tats game up, Paul.

    UGLY UGLY UGLY UGLY. I hope he wears a sleeve!!

  • http://www.kwapt.blogspot.com KobeWearsAPurpleThong

    @Fresh Prince He’s had tats for a few years now. The dice represent his trademark “roll of the dice” he does every night in player intros-not gambling. Wishful thinking though.

    Hilarious, t-sizzle.

  • rich

    if ur gonna get a tat then there isnt anything more fitting than that for him to get

  • max

    that could be durants leg…

    I feel bad for the guy if he feels he needs a tattoo on his arm to let everyone know his nickname is the truth. One day when he gets over 50 he will look back on the tattoo and laugh, first because its ugly, second because its long and third because he got traded from the Celtics. PP is an great actor maybe in a CSI:Boston eposide he will play a rapper named the Truth who gets stabbed, then has to point out his aggressors, then while walking PP falls, then is in a wheelchair, but remembers than he can walk, then CSI folks realize PP stabbed himself to get street cred and live up to the Truth name. BOOK IT!

    nice but waaay to big

  • wouldnt u like to know

    Lmbo SEED WINS!!!!!

  • Lefty

    @The Seed First of all, a man getting stabbed isn’t something to joke about. Second, Pierce didn’t get the tattoo to let everyone know his nickname is The Truth, everyone that watches any basketball already knows this. Iverson got The Answer tattooed, LeBron got King James and The Chosen One, they all have their nicknames tatted on them. And last, Pierce isn’t getting traded, he just signed a 4-year contract extension and will without a doubt retire as a Celtic.

  • AJ

    these players dont need their nicknames tattoed on them…thats stupid imo…the truth, the choosen one, the answer, etc…and only one of them have a ring….so the the choosen one with the truthful answer is kobe…the black mamba…five rings and counting…

  • http://www.lakers.com CommissionerPalpatine

    The Truth is you got your azz handed to you in the finals. Shoulda gotten “I am Artesticles B*tch” on his arm.

  • Do Work

    @Lefty damn dude, how much does pierce pay you to have his back like that?

    @AJ did you forget about that ring that pierce took from kobe?

  • user

    by far one of the dumbest tattoos ive ever seen

  • http://minusthebars.blogspot.com don

    There are three sides to every story.

    Paul Pierce’s side.

    The NBA fans’ side.

    And, of course, the truth.

  • slamfan4life
