Charlie Villanueva’s arms will look different this season


Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press noted that not only did Charlie Villanueva embrace a new offseason workout regimen, he added some body art:

After going almost his entire life without any ink, the 6-feet-11 power forward’s arms have turned into a canvas for a tattoo artist.

After getting his first, he couldn’t stop when he realized it didn’t hurt that much.

“I waited so long because I didn’t know what I want or exactly what I wanted to do,” Villanueva said at media day. “At the same time, once I did one, I thought it was going to hurt a lot more. I actually liked the pain, which is kind of weird so I was like keep going.”

Ellis reported that Villanueva looked at his tattoos partially as a ‘new beginning.’ Hey, if that works, more power to him. The Pistons certainly need some scoring off their bench and Villanueva has the ability and, in a contract year (wishful thinking on my part, sorry), should have the motivation to provide it.
