We’re not normally big on highlighting tattoos around these parts, mainly because there are only so many variants of failed “DALLAS COWBOYS WORLD CHAMPIONS 2016” or misspelled “GO PATRITOS” ink you can take. But we’re running dangerously low on Odell Beckham Jr. content around these parts, so we take this opportunity to spotlight everyone’s favorite highlight-generating wide receiver. And man oh man, the out-for-the-season Beckham has been spending some time at the tattoo parlor. Check this out:

That is one hell of a mural there. You’ve got the Joker, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Barack Obama, Prince, a raised fist from the 1968 Olympics … he’s hitting all the high notes. On the other side of the leg:

When Beckham returns to the field in 2018, he’ll be able to distract cornerbacks with a different story for every tattoo. And they’ll look pretty sharp on a boat, too.
