Breakers star RJ Hampton has paid tribute to Kobe Bryant in a permanent way, appearing to have the late NBA legend tattooed on his body.
Having cited Bryant as one of his idols, 18-year-old Hampton this afternoon revealed a freshly inked tattoo of both Kobe and daughter Gianna Bryant on Twitter.
"Just so wherever I go, they’ll know..." he captioned the photo.
The artist behind the touching tribute has been identified as Auckland-based Hiro, from Ink Rush Tattoos.
Bryant died earlier this week at the age of 41, killed alongside daughter Gianna and seven others in a tragic helicopter crash in Los Angeles.
