NBA Sixth Man of the Year front-runner Jordan Clarkson heaped praises on Filipino tattoo artist Jack Brizuela, who recently created a lifelike portrait of the Utah Jazz guard’s face.
“WILD 🔥🔥🔥!!!” wrote the Fil-Am Clarkson on his Instagram Story on Tuesday, May 4 (Wednesday, May 5, Manila time).
The insane leg tattoo, which left Clarkson in awe, features a detailed image of him wearing a very noticeable black NBA headband and the Jazz’s yellow Nike Statement Edition jersey.
Clarkson, who is currently averaging 17.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists for the playoff-bound Jazz, also quickly expressed his appreciation to Brizuela in the latter’s Instagram post, calling his work “tough.”
“Wow this is so [tough]!!! Appreciate the love!!!” said Clarkson.
Brizuela’s post has now reached more than 2,000 likes, and even Filipino basketball stars such as Juan Gomez de Liaño and Kobe Paras had a few great words for Brizuela in the comments section.
“Go crazy brodie!! 🙌 ” wrote Gomez de Liaño.
“Sheeesh!!!!” added Paras.
