ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue is coming!


Sure, for anyone looking at this issue wishing they had a chiseled, amazing body like these athletes do, it's hard to ignore the unintentional double entendre on calling this the "Body Issue."

But let's not focus on that for a moment—in honor of the fourth edition of the Body Issue being released to newsstands, let's focus on some of the most beautiful tattoo to appear in the four editions of the Body Issue.



Tim Howard


Howard will appear nude in the magazine except for his goalie gloves and his numerous tattoos and it looks like ever increasing assortment of tattoos.
