Unless you are up on your Renaldo Balkman knowledge, you probably didn’t know that he has two eye-lid tattoos that says “Hustler” and “Harder” on his eye-lids. Currently, Balkman is a member of the Dallas Mavericks and when head coach Rick Carlisle was asked about Balkman’s unique tattoos, he actually liked them according to the Dallas Morning News: Asked for his first thoughts on the dreadlocked, multi-tattooed former first-round draft pick of the New York Knicks, coach Rick Carlisle said: “My first thoughts? I like his hairdo. And I like his tattoos a lot. There’s a lot of storytelling going on there. “You know he’s got a high pain tolerance if he’s got tattoos on his eyelids. All that stuff impresses me before we even start talking about his game. That’s why I liked [DeShawn] Stevenson.” *** Rick Carlisle image courtesy of Getty Images
