New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball showed off an impressive new sleeve of body art on Monday night.

Ball’s new tattoo, which is the work of Steve Butcher, features several African American icons, including Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, Malcolm X, Harriet Tubman and Barack Obama. The former No. 2 overall pick also asked the artist to ink in a message across the top of the new piece: “The Marathon Continues.”

Ball, who was traded from the Lakers to the Pelicans this offseason, says his father was less than pleased when he learned of his son’s first tattoo:

“My brother got a bunch of them, so I didn’t want him to be the only one in the family,” Ball told the Los Angeles Times in 2018. “My dad was pretty mad the first time. I used to have wristbands, but they all snapped off, so I figured I’d put them there permanently.”

Ball, a native of Southern California, has noted that he enjoyed his time with the Lakers, but he’s also excited for a fresh start with the Pelicans:

“I was kind of excited, honestly,” Ball told ESPN. “I kind of figured someone was going to get moved soon enough. I knew Anthony Davis wanted to come bad. Anytime you can get a guy like that, you are going to have to do what you have to do to get him. So I was kind of already just waiting for it, honestly, and I was happy to go with two guys I am comfortable with in B.I. [Brandon Ingram] and JHart [Josh Hart]. I am excited to see what we can do.

“I tell people when I was a rookie, I probably would have been sad,” Ball continued on being traded. “Just being from L.A., having my whole family here and wanting to be a Laker. But being in the league for two years, knowing it’s a business, as long you get to play, that’s a blessing in itself. I’m excited to get started.”

The Pelicans finished the 2018-19 regular season with a 33-49 overall record, which left the team out of the playoff hunt. With No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson aboard for the coming season, though, New Orleans will be looking to get back into contention.
