Bobby Portis’ New Little Rock Tatoo Is Spectacular

It’s the new “501 BOY”

Bobby Portis is the absolute best.

Little Rock native Darren McFadden famously tattooed “501 BOY” on his biceps and “Arkansas Bred” on his stomach back around his college days, but Portis just took it to not only the next level, but like all the way up to the final battle vs Ganon in Level 9. Check this out:

My love, my pride and my joy. Proud Arkansan and Razorback I am. Appreciate the artwork Brodie @geo0989

You are correct. That’s Portis with a tattoo of himself from his Razorback days looking up at the Little Rock skyline. If it makes you weepy, that is what fine art is supposed to do.

I’m not totally sure how Portis ranks among the all time great Arkansas basketball players, but it’s hard to include him among our top favorite players.

After an up-and-down-and-up rookie season with the Chicago Bulls last year, Portis is hoping a hugely successful NBA Summer League performance in which he was named to the league’s All-NBA Summer League First Team will lead to successful second year in the league.


I wasn’t initially aware of this but apparently McFadden has also added more Arkansas-centric ink to his back since playing in the NFL. This is from 2011.
