The New York Giants wide receiver—and one of the Most Stylish Men in the World Right Now—talks about his hair god-level locks and storytelling tattoo game.
The Hair Turns Pro:
“I decided to go blond heading into the NFL combine, and it just got blonder and blonder. The more fun I had, the blonder it got.”
On the Rocks:
“These earrings are some black diamonds that I was gifted with. They’re screw-backs, and I take ’em out at least once a week just to give my ears a break. I do play in them. Hopefully my earlobes don’t get ripped off one day.”
A Grower and a Shower:
“I never, ever thought I would be able to grow a beard like I have now. I think it’s gonna be here for a little minute. Fear the beard, hopefully.”
Taking Up Arms:
“In high school I used to draw on my arms with a Sharpie. I knew I was gonna have a lot of tattoos. I’m not exactly classified as an artist, so my drawings could only go so far as I could take ’em. Now my tats are all a story: There’s not one I can remember where I got a tat just to get a tat. It’s all a part of me. I don’t think I’m finished yet.”
