Shaquille O’Neal Tattoos – The Superman of Steel


Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal, better known as Shaq, or The Diesel, or Shaq Fu, or even The Big Aristotle (for his wisdom!), or The Big Daddy, Superman, The Big Agave, The Big Cactus, The Big Shaqtus, The Big Galactus, Wilt Chamberneezy, The Big Baryshnikov, The Real Deal, Dr. Shaq and recently also Shaqovic is the only NBA active player in the top list of the 50 best players of all times.

Shaq is a huge 7 feet 1 inch, 325 pounds man often defined as the most dominant player in the NBA. Such a physical power has always been supported by an equally monstrous ego, which makes Shaw one of the most arrogant and conceited player ever. That said, I must admit I love this big guy. He is arrogant, of course, but in a funny way.

Shaquille o’Neil has won whatever a basketball player could ever dream to win. He is a quite successful rapper and he is the star of his own reality show, Shaq Vs., in which he uses his entire ego to challenge the best athletes in the world in several different sport disciplines. He also runs a twitter account with something more than a million followers! A successful person, for sure.

His huge body is also a perfect big canvas for tattoo artworks. He has got quite a few tattoos, but the funny thing about them is that he had to ask his mother before getting them. Here The Big Agave’s words: “First of all, I got my tattoos because I was allowed to get them. You better believe I asked my mother first.”

It’s not easy to recognize all of his tattoos. Some of them are pretty huge, some other are not clear enough to tell what they really are. Here is what I could find out about Shaquille Tattoos:

Shaq is one of the many NBA players who decided to have his own nickname engraved on skin. Shaq chose Diesel, among his many pseudonyms, as tattoo for his left shoulder. He got it just above his favourite tattoo, perennial sign of his immortal ego: the big “S” of Superman. Not yet satisfied, he has also added the inscription “Man of Steel” to it.

More difficult to distinguish are the tattoo designs on Shaq’s right shoulder and arm. One of them should be displaying his daughter name Amirah, but I cannot say it for sure.

Two more controversial inscriptions say: “The world is mine” and “Against the Law” because, as Shaq explains, “My game’s so good, there has to be a law to stop it”.

Another interesting tattoo design on his right arm portrays a fist holding a diamond.

Some other recognizable tattoos on Shaq body are the word “BIG” and the design of a huge muscled man, in a Hulk style, maybe depicting Shaquille himself, on his right forearm.
