Odell Beckham is finally revealing the ink he got to honor Kobe Bryant after the Lakers legend’s tragic death … and it’s pretty amazing.
You can see in a picture posted by the Browns superstar Friday … the art on his rib cage features a classic photo of Kobe chewing on his Lakers jersey.
Of course, it’s an iconic image of the Mamba … who was known to bite his uni during nearly every game — and famously passed on the tick to his daughter, Gianna Bryant, before they were both killed in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26.
Odell went under the needle just days after the accident … forever putting art on his body to remind him of how much Kobe meant to him.
“You taught us ALL so many valuable lessons Kobe,” Odell said after the tragedy. “Your sacrifice and dedication to this game is somethin that every athlete can admire.”
“You showed us that there is no substitute for hard work. You’ve been thru it, yet u always found a way to overcame it all. This one hurt beyond words.”
Odell is one of many athletes and celebs who have gotten Kobe tats to honor the legend … The Game famously got Bryant ink on his forehead this month while LeBron James and Anthony Davis got thigh tats.
Others, like Bryant’s longtime friend, Olden Polynice, have turned to drawing to honor Kobe … telling us art is helping him get through the grieving process.
