Hey, look! ODB is actually a “full back.”
After Giants superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. inked a $95 million contract extension this week, making him the highest-paid wideout in history, he popped off his shirt to show off a massive, back-spanning tattoo.
The tableau — a nod to “Planet of the Apes” — depicts simian figures rising up from his waist amid an urban backdrop that includes a crumbling Chrysler Building on his right shoulder blade and Lady Liberty’s disembodied head below.
The scene also depicts West Coast icons the Golden Gate Bridge and Hollywood sign.
Legendary Manhattan tattoo-artist-to-the-stars Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy did the striking piece over four days in 2016. “4 days with my man @iam_objxiii and I couldn’t have had a better time!” he wrote on Instagram.
The 25-year-old Giants superstar got his first tattoo as a high-school senior: “Make dreams reality.”
“I’m going to have my whole body covered, but I’m stopping at the wrists, so if I have a suit on, you won’t be able to tell I have any, unless maybe one curls out by accident,” OBJ said in 2015.
“But not my legs; that s–t hurts.” Nevertheless, he bit the bullet and got his right leg done in 2017.
The hip-to-ankle art features athletes Muhammad Ali, Jesse Owens, Mike Tyson and Allen Iverson plus musicians Prince, Tupac Shakur, and Michael Jackson and political figures Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr. and Barack Obama.
He posted pics of the leg work on Instagram — which was done by Spanish ink-slinger Joaquin Ganga Lopez — along with the caption: “Body marked up like a subway in Harlem.”
