When it comes to crazy fans and athlete tribute tattoos, you never know what — or who — you might find. If social media has taught us anything, it’s that there’s a big enough fan out there for almost every professional athlete. Charlie Villanueva may not be one of the best players in the NBA, but that didn’t stop one Detroit Pistons fan from getting an incredibly-detailed portrait of the former UConn Husky on his upper arm. As you can see from the photo above that SB Nation’s Detroit Bad Boys passed along, a commenter shared his tattoo during a comment thread in the middle of a recent Pistons game. Villanueva found out about the ink and was flattered enough to share it on his Instagram account. Frightening? Yes, but aren’t they all? It doesn’t matter if it’s Stephon Marbury in China, James Harden’s beard or Dirk Nowitzki’s face on a dude’s ass, all of these tribute tattoos are over the top in their own way.

Fan has Charlie Villanueva tattoo on arm

It isn’t often that a bench player that is eighth in scoring on his team, and horribly overpaid, ends up as a tattoo. Actually, it isn’t all too often that any basketball player ends up in permanent skin ink on person. But Charlie Villanueva of the Detroit Pistons ended up being forever inked on some Pistons fans arm. I’m not quite sure why anyone would ever want to do this...

Pistons Fan Gets Charlie Villanueva Tattoo (Photo)

I am sort of confused, but I am always confused by men who get other men tattooed on their body. Who wakes up in the morning and says… “I got to get some ink bro, I’m going to get the 8th leading scorer on the Pistons tatted on my arm. The ladies will love that.” I fear for our Nation at times. Just very odd and strange, next we will see someone with a Smush Parker tattoo.

Andre Drummond goes for 11 and 11; rookie under-owned in fantasy leagues

Do you like rebounds, blocks and steals? How about a high field-goal percentage? How about star potential? Then do I have a waiver wire pickup for you. Andre Drummond is just 37-percent owned in Yahoo leagues. That is extremely low for what the rookie out of UConn is doing on the court. In the Pistons' 105-90 win Tuesday over the Orlando Magic, Drummond scored 11 points...

Maxiell powers Pistons past Magic

AUBURN HILS, Mich. -- For years, Glen Davis has been a thorn in the side of the Detroit Pistons. Tuesday, Jason Maxiell played Big Baby right off the floor.

"Baby has been a difference-maker...

Pistons bully Magic in blowout

The signs were there that the game stood on the edge for either team with Detroit heading to the locker room up two points at halftime. The Pistons were not shooting the ball well and were giving up 3-pointers left and right to a strong-shooting Magic team. The Magic were giving up offensive rebounds and getting beat in transition after committing turnovers. Not to mention the...

What's with the Pistons bizarre continued domination of the Celtics?

Greg Monroe (middle) loves playing the Celtics. It's been more than a year since the Celtics beat the Pistons.  On December 30th, 2011 Boston knocked off Detroit 96-85 in their first game at the Garden last season.  Since that day the Pistons are 36-63 against all other teams in the NBA combined, but 4-0 vs. Boston.  In fact, in those four games the Celtics have never even...

Bynum Leads The Way

With 2013 firmly on track, Bynum has become an offensive force. No, friends, not Andrew Bynum, but Detroit’s Will Bynum. On Sunday, he had 15 points, 2 boards, 5 assists and a steal. When the Pistons played New York in London, Bynum kept his team in the game with 22 points, 2 rebounds, 4 dimes and a steal. The Saturday before that, he clawed his way to 13 points with 4 dishes....
