Houston Texans WR Kenny Stills just revealed a new tattoo “Black Lives Matter” on his leg … part of a larger piece that tells the story of the struggle of blacks in America.
The tattoo begins on Kenny’s hip and goes down to his ankle – with images of recent BLM protests … and other important moments in the civil rights movement.
Some of the twisted signs of protest on Stills include “Say their names” and “Stop killing us” … mixed with iconic images, including a protest of a demonstration of school segregation.
Stills, 28, one of the NFL players who continued to kneel during the national anthem in 2019 – added the new art to a previous tattoo that featured the mug shot of Congressman John lewis, who was arrested in the 1960s for peacefully demonstrating against segregation.
Below this image is the famous coup of a protester in Memphis holding a sign saying “I am a man”. The original photo was taken in 1968 by the photographer Steve Schapiro.
The new ink is already going well with some of his NFL friends, including Odell Beckham who commented: “I wish I had more room!”
