‘Cats show off their tats


In addition to expressing themselves through their athletic accomplishments, Arizona athletes express themselves through tattoos as well. Here are the stories of three Wildcats and their tattoos:


Jesse Perry

men’s basketball, forward

“”I got two of them. The one with my mother’s name, and my grandmother’s name … a scripture. My dad passed a long time ago, so I kinda got pops on my chest. I got a lot of tattoos that mean a lot. Pretty much all of them have a meaning, you know, just a lot of things I’ve been through. Some of them symbolize that. My whole body will be tatted up in the future.


Jordin Mayes

men’s basketball, guard

Right now, I only got two. My favorite one is the cross right here with my mom and my grandma’s name. I’m going to get some more.


Candice Warthen

women’s basketball, guard

“”The one (on my shoulder), I got when I was 15 because I just wanted a tattoo. The one on my leg, it’s a basketball. I got it when I was 17 because I love basketball, and I just wanted to put something on me, you know, that had to do with basketball.””
