Nikola Pekovic – The Truth Behind the Tattoo

A few weeks back, when watching the Wolves vs Blazers game, the announcers made some remarks to the beast Pekovic’s tattoo that I had never heard before. These remarks had me doing some digging. I have always speculated about what the meaning of this particular tattoo was, and now it is clear.

The Answer: After extensive research (5mn or so), I found some sources on this. The Warrior happens to be Pekovic, and the skulls are of his enemies that he has absolutely slain in battle. The announcers of the game proclaimed, “It looks like Lopez will be the next skull added with all the others, because Lopez is getting dominated”. This has added a whole new level of respect for Pekovic and his tattoos, the guy is an absolute giant on the court, leaving him a force to be reckoned with. Pek ended up with 30pts and 9 rebounds; so watch out Lopez, you might just be the next skull.
