Who are the most tattooed teams in the NBA?

While there's nobody that takes it to Chris Andersen's level, tattoos are still a widespread trend among NBAers. Per our research, 51.4 percent of the players in the league (rosters as of March 5) have at least one.

Nowhere are they more popular than with the team storming through the Eastern Conference this season.

1. ATLANTA HAWKS

With 13 players wearing tattoos, the Hawks lead the entire NBA in this department. Al Horford and Elton Brand are the only exceptions on the team. Macedonian center Pero Antic is approaching the Chris Andersen Zone when it comes to ink and Dennis Schroder, 21, could get there with time. Worth noting: Forward Mike Scott is a fan of emoji tattoos.

2. DENVER NUGGETS

Way more tats than wins this season. The Nuggets play the tattoo game very hard with 11 players carrying at least one. Their most inked out players are probably Jameer Nelson and Wilson Chandler, who got his first tat at 16.

3. DALLAS MAVERICKS

Hardcore Mavericks fans may wear Dirk Nowitzki tattoos (sometimes in weird places), but Nowitzki himself doesn't have a single one. He's in the minority in Dallas, where 11 players have spent quite a bit of time in the tattoo chair. (Monta Ellis moreso than anybody else).

This is how the rest of the NBA teams do tattoo-wise:
