Marquis Daniels played ball with the Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers, Boston Celtics, and Milwaukee Bucks during his decade with the NBA. He’s since retired from playing professional ball, but he’s still on the court, working on the coaching staff for Auburn University, his alma mater. Daniels also tried his hand at hip-hop under the name Q6 and released several singles, including one with Lil Boosie. Still, his passion is basketball, and that’s where he prefers to spend his time, so if he isn’t on the court, he’s on the side, coaching the next generation of players.
While Daniels is known for his ball-handling skills, he’s also well known in tattoo circles for having more than his fair share. He has tattoos emblazoned all over his body, and compared to his peers, most of them are a bit out there. There’s some bizarre stuff, including a neck tattoo that reads “1090 Blokk Boyz” covering his throat. There’s a massive map of the state of Florida with “407,” the area code for the Orlando Metro area, on his back and plenty of other distinctive and strange designs.
The majority of Daniels’ tattoos are well-illustrated and not too strange. However, he has one highly questionable design on his right forearm. The image is of a man with a shotgun to his mouth, blowing his brains out under the caption, “ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE.” The suicidal imagery is incredibly offputting, as is the mediocre artwork, making it truly unsettling and bizarre.
