NBA greats Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Tony Parker are being inked in minute sweat-dripping detail by New Zealand tattoo artist Steve Butcher.

The self-taught artist told Inked Magazine he was at art school when he started practicing on his friends.

These days he's in high demand in New Zealand and at conventions internationally. Checking out his work, it's easy to see why.
