Tattoos are huge in professional sports. Everywhere you look in the pros, you see athletes displaying tats. Well, New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. just added a new tattoo to his collection, and his image choice was a bit strange.

Yes, OBJ got a huge tattoo of Michael Jackson's face on his leg. Jackson was one of the most successful entertainers of all time; and probably a ton of people have Michael Jackson-influenced tattoos, but that doesn't make Beckham's tat any less odd.

This isn't the first time OBJ has shown love to the King of Pop. Throughout his career, Beckham has entertained fans with his Michael Jackson dance moves after he scores a touchdown. OBJ has done the "Thriller" dance,  Michael Jackson's leg kick and even moonwalked.
