Tyler Herro’s chest tattoo is one of many Christian symbols inked on NBA players

The cross is the ultimate picture of hope for any Christian believer.

It is a symbol of forgiveness and redemption for Christians worldwide, who believe that through faith in Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross, they can be reconciled to God and receive eternal life.

The cross holds such significance, that often believers choose to get it tattooed as a permanent reminder of God’s love for them.

And this is no different for some of the world’s most high-profile athletes, including those in the NBA.

Miami Heat star Tyler Herro recently got a cross tattooed on his chest:

The 23-year-old has often taken to social media to thank God for the many blessings in his life.

Most recently he posted on Twitter: “Whatever God gives me, I’m forever grateful”.

And he’s not the only one. Here are some other basketball players who have tattoos about their faith:

Just underneath the crosses reads ‘Proverbs 28:1’, which says:

‘The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.’

So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.’
