Miami Heat shooting guard Tyler Herro is a no non-sense kind of guy. He’s fun. Seems. sharp. Everything you’d want to end up having him be your favorite NBA player. Today, though, we’re going to gander at some Tyler Herro tattoos.
The sharpshooter from Wisconsin has been pretty spot-on thus far in his young NBA career with his moves both on and off the court – matching his sweet jumpshot with some insane pre-game fits that always seem to make headlines. And his first two inks prove just how the sharpshooter is determined to grind his way to the top, with some Herro flare to boot.

“No Work” on his right upper chest and “No Check” on his left upper chest. A simple but inspiring phrase coming the youngster will be clinging on to for some added motivation. We’ve seen a lot of silly and nonsensical tattoos around the league but Herro’s red inks are pretty straightforward. And to be honest, it’s pretty fire.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic which unprecedentedly halted the 2019-2020 NBA regular season in March of 2020, the entire league was given a few months off to quarantine and isolate which the Miami guard took full advantage of. Herro decided to get inked during the break which was showcased in his personal training sessions with fellow Heat rookie Kendrick Nunn.
Herro’s flashy career started in high school as a senior back in Whitnall High School where he averaged 32.9 points per game during the 2017-2018 basketball season. His impressive play caught the attention of a few Division 1 programs, but he ultimately decided to play for Kentucky under legendary coach John Calipari. Herro would prove to be not just an elite scorer for the Wildcats as he averaged 14 points per game in his rookie year but was also one of the most reliable pieces in the squad starting all 37 games that season. After playing just one year for Kentucky, he opted to declare for the 2019 NBA Draft.
The Kentucky-alum has been enjoying his time in South Beach since. He was picked by the Miami Heat in the 2019 NBA Draft as their 13th overall pick and was touted as one of the best shooters in the rookie class. Herro immediately showcased his long-distance arsenal in the 2019 Summer League averaging 19 points per game in the pocket tournament, proving that he is indeed one of the best rookies that year. Though his full potential has yet to be fully tapped for the Heat when the regular season began, the rookie still had a pretty decent outing averaging 12.9 points per game in his first 47 games in the NBA.
Herro knows that he needs to do more to earn more, which is perfectly encapsulated in his only tattoos (so far). But if there’s one thing that the sniper has proven, nothing will be handed to him on a silver platter. We have still yet to see if Herro will be part of the current young core of the Heat or if Pat Riley will be using him as a trading piece as they continue to rebuild. Whether or not Herro stays in South Beach, one thing’s for sure – he’ll have that “No Work. No Check” mentality moving forward.
As for the Tyler Herro tattoos, there’s time for him to scoop up some more.
