The Las Vegas Raiders made defensive end Maxx Crosby a wealthy man with a 4-year, $94,000,000 contract that keeps him with the team through 2026.
Crosby, a two-time NFL Pro Bowler and former Eastern Michigan University standout, had a monster 2022 season with 89 tackles and 12.5 sacks. He is also now the proud owner of a tattoo that completely covers his torso and pays tribute to Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and his daughter.
For the massive tattoo, Maxx Crosby sought out celebrity tattoo artist Andres Ortega of Onder Ink in Glendale, Arizona. Andres Ortega recently completed a leg sleeve tattoo tribute to Kobe Bryant for Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott.
Maxx Crosby’s tattoo features the words ‘Be Legendary’ alongside ‘TX’ and ’98’. He was born in Colleyville, Texas and his NFL number is 98.
There are tributes to Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant ripping his Lakers jersey off as well as Crosby’s baby daughter on his right pec.
The word ‘Humble’ can be seen on his right neck and ‘Beast’ on the left. Maxx Crosby shared an additional photo of his new chest tattoo on Father’s Day when he posed with his daughter.
You don’t have to have tattoos of your own to know how much time it took for this piece. He sat for hours under the tattoo gun and emerged with a completely altered body. Going forward, there isn’t much body real estate for Crosby to have tattooed other than his legs.
For comparison’s sake, here is the recent Kobe Bryant leg sleeve tattoo that Dak Prescott got from the same tattoo artist:
You can certainly see a distinct style from Andres Ortega at Onder Ink.
